    • Abstract:
      Summary: "Cavendon Hall is home to two families, the aristocratic Inghams and the Swanns who serve them, just as their ancestors did over the centuries. Charles Ingham, the sixth Earl of Mowbray, lives there with his wife Felicity and their six children: Guy, the heir, who is studying at Cambridge; their younger son Miles, attending Eton; and their four daughters Diedre, Daphne, DeLacy and Dulcie, affectionately called the Four Dees by the staff. Walter Swann, the premier male of the Swann family, is valet to the earl. His wife Alice, a clever seamstress, who is in charge of the countess's wardrobe, also makes clothes for the four daughters. For centuries, these two families have lived side-by-side, beneath the backdrop of the imposing Yorkshire manor. But now, with World War I looming, these two families will find themselves tested in ways they never thought possible. Loyalties are tested and betrayals are set into motion. In this time of uncertainty, one thing is sure: these two families will never be the same again. Set over a period of sixteen years (from 1913 to 1929), Cavendon Hall is Barbara Taylor Bradford at her very best. "-- Provided by publisher.

Booklist Reviews 2014 March #1

The lives of the Ingham and Swann families have been intimately entwined for more than 160 years—the former as the royal owners of their estate home, Cavendon Hall; the latter as those who keep their masters' secrets. On the eve of WWI, there is a particularly dastardly secret to be protected: Lady Daphne, the most beautiful of Lord Ingham's four daughters, is raped by her closest friend's brother. Worse luck, the attack results in a pregnancy, thereby further dashing Daphne's chances of being married to an as-yet-unnamed duke. Salvation comes in the form of long-lost cousin Hugo, recently widowed and returning after a successful career in America to reclaim his Yorkshire roots. Luckily for all, Daphne and Hugo fall deeply in love, and their union further helps the Inghams and Swanns weather the tragedies to come when England goes to war. The popular and prolific Bradford knocks another fast-paced family saga out of the park with charming characters and manor-house mayhem. Copyright 2014 Booklist Reviews.

Perk up, Downton fans: the mega-best-selling Bradford, OBE, sets her next work in Edwardian England, where the Swanns have been serving the aristocratic Inghams for centuries. But with World War I comes change.

LJ Reviews 2014 December #1

Bradford is no stranger to the family saga—her popular Harte series follows a wealthy English family through the 20th century—and this Edwardian-era drama follows the lives of the Inghams, masters of Cavendon Hall, and the Swanns, their servants. Glitz, glamour, and drama abound; parallels to Downton Abbey do, too.
