CAVENDON LUCK by Barbara Taylor Bradfordl

From the #1 New York Times bestselling author comes a captivating epic saga of courage and honor, following the aristocratic Inghams and the loyal Swann family who have served them for centuries.
It is 1938 in England, and Miles and Cecily Ingham have lead the family in bringing the Cavendon estate back from the brink of disaster. But now, with the arrival of World War II, Cavendon Hall will face its biggest challenge yet. It is a challenge that will push the Inghams and Swanns to protect each other and the villagers, and reveal their true capacity for survival and rebirth. Told with Bradford’s deft, evocative prose and featuring a beloved cast of characters, The Cavendon Luck is a story of intrigue, romance, sorrow, and joy that readers won’t soon forget.

OPINION:

I've been a fan of Barbara Taylor Bradford for decades. CAVENDON LUCK is the third book in the family saga / series about the Ingham and Swann families. This part of the saga picks up approximately a decade after the 2nd book where Cavendon Hall was restored from nearly being lost. It begins as World War II threatens and the two families must face new, more dangerous troubles and struggle to keep their home and people safe. Once again, the story plot is steady and truly breathes life into the turbulent era in the years before, during, and after the war. The characters are real and highly developed.  gives you an idea of what life would have been like during the Second World War in Britain. I thoroughly enjoyed the entire saga, but especially this one because of its satisfying ending. Well done! Highly recommended for lovers of epic family sagas, but I recommend reading the entire series (Cavendon Hall and Cavendon Women) to get the most impact from these two fascinating families.
