Book Description

A sweeping saga set around the aristocratic Ingham family of Cavendon Hall and the Swanns who serve them, set on the eve of World War 1.

Two entwined families: the aristocratic Inghams and the Swanns who serve them

One stately home: Cavendon Hall, a grand imposing house nestled in the beautiful Yorkshire Dales

A society beauty: Lady Daphne Ingham is the most beautiful of the Earl’s daugthers. Being presented at Court and then a glittering marriage is her destiny.

But in the summer of 1913, a devastating event changes her future forever, and puts the House of Ingham at risk. Life as the families of Cavendon Hall know it – Royal Ascot, supper dances, grouse season feasts – is about to alter beyond recognition as the storm clouds of war gather.

Review

‘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, terrific stuff full of drama, passion, romance and danger.’ Sarah Broadhurst, Lovereading.co.uk

‘Few novelists are as consummate as Barbara Taylor Bradford at keeping the reader turning the page. She is one of the world’s best at spinning yarns’
Guardian

4.0 out of 5 stars CAVENDON HALL 31 Jan. 2014
By Amanda TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Set in Edwardian England this story tells of the Inghams, an aristocratic family, and the Swanns who are their honourable servants. Living in Cavendon Hall, a large manor in Yorkshire with the threat of World War One hanging over them, Charles, the sixth Earl of Mowbray and his wife Felicity are bringing up their six children, two sons and four daughters.Going back over a hundred years the Swanns have worked for the Inghams, living by their side and forever offering nothing less than loyalty and deep friendship.
This novel is about these two families and their entwined lives and how a tragedy affects them all.
An engaging read with some interesting and colourful characters, though too many to take in at once, thankfully the author has a list at the beginning of the book,much needed!

2.0 out of 5 stars Cheese, with Extra cheese 3 Mar. 2014
By Jetoben
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is laughably simplistic. Everything is just so silly and perfect it's almost nauseating. That said, I read it to the end. Haven't read a Barbara TB for a long time, and loved her Emma Hart books, not sure if she's changed or me. Very much Peoples Friend territory, but it's clearly not my cup of tea and won't be buying another.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cavendon Hall 13 April 2014
Format:Hardcover
Cavendon Hall by Barbara Taylor Bradford

Cavendon Hall did not disappoint me as it swept me through the end of the Edwardian era to post World War I.

This tale of the Inghams, an aristocratic English family, and the Swanns, who are bound to the Inghams by loyalty kept me turning the pages until late at night.

Not only does Barbara Taylor-Bradford bring a large cast of characters to life but she neither avoids describing shocking events nor fails to convey joy,

I am looking forward to reading the sequel, Cavendale Women in which, in the author’s own words “the Swanns and Inghams will tell their own stories.”

1.0 out of 5 stars Bland and disappointing 7 Mar. 2014
By Ang66
Format:Hardcover
I love books set around the time of WW1 so I was looking forward to reading this one. It is meant, I think, to be similar to Downton Abbey but it is sadly not. The characters are superficial and their actions are not explained. I don't want to go into a lot of detail as I wouldn't like to spoil the book for those who wish to read it. These are just a few examples - The Countess has issues with her marriage but no detail is given as to why these have arisen. Daphne recovers from her attack with no lasting effects - very unlikely in real life. The Swann family exist only to smooth out the difficulties the aristocrats get themselves into and are too dim too sort out for themselves. The whole thing is very unbelievable. WW1 is squashed into the last 100 pages of the book. Again, those who survive come back fit and well with no shell-shock, injuries, nightmares etc. I appreciate BTB's books are meant to be escapist instead of deep and meaningful but this one takes the biscuit.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as her other novels 7 Mar. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I started reading this book and felt bored, i have put it down and started reading another, every once in a while i go back to read a few pages just for the sake of finishing it. Not my cup of tea. I do like Barbara's novels but i do not think historic ones are her strongest point.

2.0 out of 5 stars Cavendon Hall 3 Mar. 2014

Format:Kindle Edition
BTB really shouldn't have bothered. I have enjoyed previous books but this was poorly written with a weak predictable plot. Maybe BTB should give up writing? Very disappointing
