From the #1 New York Times bestselling author comes an epic saga of intrigue and mystique set in Edwardian England. Cavendon Hall is home to two families, the aristocratic Inghams and the Swanns who serve them. Charles Ingham, the sixth Earl of Mowbray, lives there with his wife Felicity and their six children. 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. Lady Daphne, the most beautiful of the Earl's daughters, is about to be presented at court when a devastating event changes her life and threatens the Ingham name. With World War I looming, both families will find themselves tested in ways they never thought possible. Loyalties will be challenged and betrayals will be set into motion. In this time of uncertainty, one thing is sure: these two families will never be the same again. Cavendon Hall is Barbara Taylor Bradford at her very best, and its sweeping story of secrets, love, honor, and betrayal will have readers riveted up to the very last page.

As usual the author has created a world of two families linked together by history and love. She takes the reader into their world and allows you time to be taken away to another time and place and to share with them as they travel through the early 1900's. Anxious to continue on this journey with them.

If you're jonesing for a Downton Abbey book, this will miss the mark. It's got everything you'd expect--wealth, family secrets, a great house--but the writing, plotting, pacing, and character development left much to be desired.

Great read. The story is captivating and very well written. You feel part of the family, go through their struggles and moments of happiness. It's hard to put down. Loved it!

Sedate costume drama where the action is told & not shown. Has a really wonderful romantic confession on page 238.

One of the best reads in a long time. Hard to put down. Pity that we have to wait until February 2015 to read the sequel called Cavendon Woman
