If you are new to this blog, you will soon realize my love and appreciation for historical anything. Historical fiction, non fiction, romance, steam punk, historical thrillers, etc are all things I cannot get enough of. Unfortunately there is not enough time in the day to read all the historical books that I want, but it does not take away the opportunity to highlight this fantastic historical fiction that came out in December. The Cavendon Woman has a little bit of everything for any reader; history, drama, excitement, thrills that is great for anyone looking to revamp their reading habits.
In THE CAVENDON WOMEN Bradford follows the Inghams’ and the Swanns’ journey from a family weekend in the summer of 1926 through to the devastation of the Wall Street crash of 1929. It all begins on a summer weekend in July of 1926 when, for the first time in years, the Earl has planned a family weekend. As the family members come together, secrets, problems, joys, and sorrows are revealed. As old enemies come out of the shadows and the Swanns’ loyalty to the Inghams gets tested in ways none of them could have predicted, it’s up to the Cavendon women to band together and bring their family into a new decade, and a new way of life. – The Cavendon Women
“Since the publication of A Woman of Substance, Bradford has set the bar for what a saga should be: sweeping, fascinating and dramatic. She’s done that again in this wonderful series with a cast of strong, loving women — there’s even a nod to Emma Harte. The power and emotion of Bradford’s novel comes through on every page.” – The Romantic Times (4 ½ Stars!) on The Cavendon Women
