9780007503285: The Cavendon Women (Cavendon Chronicles, Book 2)

A sweeping, multi-generational saga for fans of Downton Abbey, set around the stately home of Cavendon Hall as the roaring twenties change the family’s fortunes forever.

1926. One stately home’s future lies with four very different young women…

On a summer weekend in 1926 the Ingham family gathers at Cavendon Hall, the great house in Yorkshire that has been their family home for centuries, summoned by the Earl. With them are the Swanns who have served the house for generations – and know all their secrets.

The estate is under threat: the aftermath of the Great War has left Cavendon facing ruin. Its heir is pushing for divorce so he can follow his heart. And the Earl has a surprise of his own.

Four young women from both sides of the house will be the ones to shape its future – Daphne, fighting to modernise her ancestral home; Cecily Swann, forging a path as a fashion designer in London; Deidre, the career girl, and Dulcie, the outspoken debutante. They will change the estate’s future for good or ill as the roaring twenties burn towards the Great Depression. Nothing will ever be the same again…

Review:

‘The four young women centre stage are a feistier lot than their Downton counterparts...These are likeable, well-drawn characters whose fortunes you follow with keen interest...neatly captures the brittleness of the decade that danced and stumbled towards the Great Depression.’ Daily Mail

‘Sweeping, fascinating and dramatic... there’s even a nod to Emma Harte. The power and emotion come through on every page’ Romantic Times Book Reviews

Acclaim for Cavendon Hall:
‘A classic saga of loyalty, secrets, passion and intrigue...if you’ve been suffering withdrawal symptoms from Downton, this is for you’ Daily Mail

‘A stately home, a dangerous secret and two families whose fates have been intertwined for generations...a gripping period piece set on the brink of the Great War. Exquisite escapism of the highest order.’ The Lady

‘A glorious family saga for Downton Abbey fans...This is Barbara Taylor Bradford in her element, full of drama, passion, romance and danger.’ Sarah Broadhurst, lovereading.co.uk
