Set from 1905 to 1943, this is the story of a family whose 18th century family estate is in the Scots border country. It starts brilliantly, and deteriorates only slightly as it descends to the various romances of the family's children. The setting and the characters are charming, a little
lighter that Rosamund Pilcher's books, but very much in that vein, with servants and family retainers taken for granted. I can't wait to read
other books by D.E. Stevenson, and would love a list of her work with a suggested order for reading them.
