Although designated as children's books I was reminded of K.M. Peyton's 'Flambards' series (4 books) when I watched Downton Abbey. Themes of riding, early aeroplanes, the First World War, falling in love across the class divide, and life in a big house post war.

Ravenscraig may be of interest to you. www.altersandi.com
Nothing is more important to Rupert J. Willows than the image he has built to hide the deep secret of his true identity. A master manipulator, the ruthless and charismatic Rupert schemes his way into the upper class when he purchases the opulent mansion, Ravenscraig Hall. It is the turn of the 20th century in one of the fastest growing cities in North America. True power is within Rupert's grasp as long as his secret stays buried.
Malka Zigman is a survivor. Orphaned in London, she leaves England to join her Uncle Zev and his hardworking Jewish family in Canada. Recent immigrants who escaped from poverty and violence in czarist Russia, the Zigmans struggle to put down roots in the slums of North End Winnipeg. With family resources stretched thin, Malka takes a risk. Everything is about to change as she reinvents herself as Maisie Rosedale and crosses over to the exclusive world of "the English" as the new maid at Ravenscraig.

Hi Nicci, I am the author of Maria's Papers, to be released here on the 28th May, and although a lot of it is based in Victorian times, it portrays a whole new side to life in those days and the desperate vulnerability of ordinary women in a world predominantly ruled by men. But there were always those who could not be subjugated... If you do buy, I hope that you enjoy it.
