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!

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.”

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.

Cavendon Hall written by Barbara Taylor Bradford was not only a good read but also it was an excellent audio experience which I did enjoy. The book is based on the Ingham family and those who served in their household the Swann family. There are many characters within this very readable book and each of them really added to the story.
The main era of the book is just prior and during the First World War and though there was some mention of the war this book really based the story on the goings on of the household and those who lived in and the surrounding lands. This was one book which I know I will return too as the author Barbara Taylor Bradford is well known for not only being a great story teller but she can bring her characters alive through excellent writing. The main characters were for me Charles Ingham and his family especially the beautiful Lady Daphne Ingham plus her delightful younger sister Dulcie who always had me smiling whenever she was part of the storyline.
Why I liked this book so much was the constant story developed throughout, there was no slow times - everything mattered to the story for me there was no wasted words which makes a great read for me.
The reason I reduced my star rating was mainly because at times the story-line was just too sweet and rather far fetched, I do not know if this was because of the audio narration as the actual narrator was a bit annoying when doing the separate accents and voices but that was only my own personal opinion. For me it did not take away this was an excellent story and I am now looking forward to the next book in the series The Cavendon Women and I am hoping Cecily Swann has a stronger role in the story-line.

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.

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.

As a pensioner I do not usually buy books on line BUT, made an exception in this case having loved "A woman of substance" How I wish I had my £7.50 back! It is, without doubt the worse and biggest fairy tale I have ever read. . I can't believe this is the same woman who wrote "A woman of substance" We have the Earl and owner of the hall seeking advice from a senior member of the "downstairs" people and, She,addressing him as Charles/Charlie Yea, in your dreams for those far off days. It was also SO repetitive with Daphne's beauty and dresses described so many times I wanted to scream! There was more padding in this book than Sue Ellen's shoulders in "Dynasty" As you will gather I will not be buying Cavendon Women. Nil points!
