Sarah Broadhurst's view...

This is number 27 in the magnificent Dynasty Series that traces the whole of British history through the many branches of the Morland family. We are now into 1912 and the Titanic. If you want English history in digestible slices then I do highly recommend this series.

Comparison: Reay Tannahill, E V Thompson.
Similar this month: None but I really think you’ll enjoy all Robert Goddard’s titles too.

If you like Cynthia Harrod-Eagles you might also like to read books by Reay Tannahill, Jean Plaidy and E V Thompson.

Synopsis

The Restless Sea by Cynthia Harrod-Eagles

England in 1912 still bears itself with Edwardian confidence, but strikes, protests and public violence reveal the fault lines as society evolves under the spur of new ideas and technology.

Among the many branches of the Morland family, Jessie and Violet, childhood friends, learn to cope with the surprises of marriage and motherhood and their different strata of society. Jack, disappointed in love, loses himself in designing aircraft and training airmen for the newly formed flying corps. And Anne exhausted by the Suffragette struggle, seeks comfort in her friendship with an unconventional young woman.

The Titanic tragedy shakes the confidence of a people used to conquering nature with engineering; and all the while, the troubled nations of Europe edge closer to a war no-one wants, but which seems inevitable.
