Another great instalment of the Morland dynasty- this had everything! This family is getting more and more interesting with each book.

I have been totally involved with this series and can't wait to get to the next volume. The characters develop over a long story arch and the author creates a world and time that they can live in. The back story of the historical context gives motive and movement to the characters in the various predicaments they find themselves inme are very unconventional for the times, viz. Lucy Morland who leaves home to become a ship's surgeon disguised as a young man (in another book).

I love the Morland Dynasty books though lately I am been averaging reading one volume every other year or so, so it takes me awhile to try to remember the last book. No worries though, Cynthia Harrod-Eagles writes so well and so detailed that memories flood back as you read along this English history soap opera. There is a lot of romance and angst and characters you like--and dislike--set against the backdrop of early 19th Century England. This is not a book however you want to jump into without [...]

good historical facts. Very good descriptive writing. The continuation of the life of the Morland family. The Napeoleonic wars have ended and the family are now trying to settle in to normal way of life. The ordinary man of the street wants something different. A good detail of the peterloo massacre given. Cynthia Harrod-Eagles gives a very good realistic view of how the people of england lived during this time.

The family has become so big, but Harrod-Eagles focuses on a few choice characters to move the story forward. Lucy's daughter, Rosamund, is tantalized by the marriage market - will she be safe or take a risk like her mother? Meanwhile, Lucy's eldest daughter, Flaminia, is in a loveless marriage and stuck in a bubble that she fears leaving. I do love that the Dowager Duchess finally gets her comeuppance.

It was entertaining and focused more on the marriages and loves within the family but sometimes the parts where other characters discuss historical events comes across a little heavy handed -- it seems like she is cramming the details into their mouths. I do enjoy the family drama and watching these characters grow up and cause trouble on their own.

Way too long. Again I got involved in a saga which at times I wanted to give up on. Obviously a well crafted novel and well plotted. Not pacy enough for me. Not enough tension between characters and for a long novel not enough catastrophes. Very good characterization.

It was a good book. A good addition to the saga. Read the full review on my blog: iwasadisneykid.wordpress/
