Two families, the aristocratic Inghams and the Swanns who serve them, have been bound by loyalty since the first stone was laid. But when war looms, sons, husbands and brothers are called up to fight; trials and tragedies strike the great house itself. The women of every generation and background must rise to meet the terrible threat posed by Hitler. The Cavendon Luck has held for a long time. Can it hold in the face of this greatest threat of all - and can it protect the next generation?

The Cavendon Luck (Cavendon Chronicles, Book 3) by Barbara Taylor Bradford

As the clouds of war gather over Cavendon Hall, the next generation must step forward...


'The four young women centre stage are a feistier lot than their Downton counterparts...These are likeable, well-drawn characters whose fortunes you follow with keen interest...neatly captures the brittleness of the decade that danced and stumbled towards the Great Depression.'
Daily Mail

'Sweeping, fascinating and dramatic... there's even a nod to Emma Harte. The power and emotion come through on every page'
Romantic Times Book Reviews

Acclaim for Cavendon Hall:

'A classic saga of loyalty, secrets, passion and intrigue...if you've been suffering withdrawal symptoms from Downton, this is for you'
Daily Mail

'A stately home, a dangerous secret and two families whose fates have been intertwined for generations...a gripping period piece set on the brink of the Great War. Exquisite escapism of the highest order.'
The Lady
