Book Description

In the last years of the nineteenth century the Morlands' fortunes are changing for the better, as Henrietta and Jerome find a true home at Morland Place, and Teddy ploughs his profits into restoring it to its former glory. But the reverses and cruelties of the Boer War and the death of Queen Victoria shake the foundations of a confident nation. The accession of King Edward seems to mark the end of the old, familiar England. Old certainties are being questioned, everything is changing, and the young generation of Morlands faces a new world, full of wonders but full of dangers.

More About the Author

Cynthia Harrod-Eagles was born in Shepherd's Bush in London. She was educated at Burlington School, a girls' charity school founded in 1699, and at the University of Edinburgh and University College London, where she studied English, history and philosophy. She wrote her first novel while at university and in 1972 won the Young Writers' Award with THE WAITING GAME.

Afterwards she had a variety of jobs in the commercial world, while writing during the evenings and weekends. The birth of the MORLAND DYNASTY series enabled her to become a full-time writer in 1979. The series was originally intended to comprise twelve volumes, but it has proved so popular that it has now been extended to thirty-four.

In 1993 she won the RNA Novel of the Year Award with EMILY, the third volume of her Kirov Saga, a trilogy set in nineteenth century Russia, and she also writes the internationally acclaimed BILL SLIDER MYSTERIES.

Cynthia Harrod-Eagles still lives in London, has a husband and three children, and apart from writing her passions are music (she plays in several amateur orchestras) horses, wine, architecture and the English countryside.

5.0 out of 5 stars History explained 26 April 2011
Format:Paperback
As with all Cynthia Harrod-Eagles books, you cannot help but absorb the history being enacted. The details of the Boer War, the death of Queen Victoria and the difficulties of war are explained but are not put into modern days ideology of how we would do it now. The writing is very much of the time including any issues which we find sensitive now. In her writing, we are able to experience what it was like then but also be able to learn from it. She writes a book almost in "real" time. There is so much given to detail unlike other historical novels where it seems the importance is "make sure you get the events written about and finished". She always leaves you desperate for the next novel. Fortunately, I have come back to these novels recently and have endulged myself in reading one after another. This particular novel Number 25, I have read after reading up to 31 but it seems not to make any great difference in terms of enjoyment, the characters are so alive, that it is good to go back and find them at the beginning of their lives. If you like history and detail. you will love this book

The first book I read by Cynthia Harrod Ragles was set at the beginning of the First World War and I enjoyed it so much that I read all the books on that period.Miss Eagles certainly researched the period thoroughly. I then decided I wanted to start at then beginning of the Morland Dynasty and I haven't been disappointed. They contain historical facts but with the Morland family story. I look forward to her writing about the second World War.

I have read and re-read all the Morland Dynasty books so many times and have learnt more about history here then at school! They are brilliant books with their own story but follows on from the last ones.
