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.

Product Description

Amazon Review

The Homecoming is the 24th novel in Cynthia Harrod-Eagles' Dynasty series, chronicling the life and times of the Morland Family. In this latest instalment, the family's fortunes are precariously balanced. The book opens with the story of Henrietta Morland, recently widowed by the death of Rector Edgar Fortescue, who "had been dead 20 months on that September day in 1885 when Jerome Compton suddenly reappeared in her life". In language that recalls Jane Austen, Harrod-Eagles observes that
"when Henrietta stepped joyfully into the arms of her one true love in the churchyard of St Mary's, Bishop Winthorne, it was like the ending of a fairy story. It ought to have been followed by nothing but those magical words, 'and they all lived happily ever after'. But life--and love--are rarely disposed to be so tidy".
The Homecoming follows Henrietta as she moves with her new husband and young daughter Lizzie to the social whirl of late 19th-century London, leaving behind her stolid brother Teddy Morland to struggle with the crumbling Morland Estate. Events in London soon overtake everyone, but disaster and exile can often lead to salvation and a homecoming of sorts. Harrod-Eagles describes the characters and background of her stories with effortless ease, and The Homecoming will delight all her dedicated readers. --Jerry Brotton --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Book Description

Continuing the seductive history of the Morland family, this episode takes us to the evening of Queen Victoria's reign and a period of peace and reconcilliation for the scattered Morlands.

Having read all the Morland Dynsaty books from one to thirty something and have re-read them time and time again thoroughly recommend them all. Can be read as a single book but suggest starting at book one if you can.
