Summary

Summary

From #1 New York Times bestselling author Barbara Taylor Bradford, comes a striking, breathtaking saga featuring the aristocratic Inghams and the Swann family, who have loyally served them for generations.

It's the summer of 1949, and things have run smoothly at Cavendon Hall for years, with very few quarrels, dramas, or upsets between the two families. But since the end of World War II, changes have arrived at Cavendon. A new generation is at the helm, and also at the forefront of new scandal and intrigue. With romance, betrayal, heartbreak, and possible murder threatening to tear them apart, the Inghams and Swanns will have to find a way to come together and protect each other in the face of threats they never could have predicted.

Told with Bradford's inimitable deftness of prose and a beloved cast of characters, Secrets of Cavendon is a captivating novel that will draw readers in and grip them until the very last page.

Booklist Review

In the aftermath of WWII, the Ingham and, by extension, Swann families find themselves confronting the challenges of maintaining their massive, and massively expensive, Cavendon estate. London couturier Cecily Swann Ingham can no longer financially feed the Cavendon coffers and dreads telling her husband, Miles, of her business failure. Her sister-in-law, Lady Daphne, bristles at the commercial changes Cecily has wrought to keep the estate afloat, and her angry departure from Cavendon is notable for how out of character it is. Daphne's daughter, Alicia, fears that her mother may be hiding a serious illness, but Daphne has exiled herself to Switzerland and isn't saying. Alicia, however, is so caught up in the heady days of a heated romance with her heartthrob associate, Adam Fennell, that she is completely blindsided when his avaricious ambition threatens to expose centuries-old Cavendon secrets. Through a rich trove of characters who seem to be magnets for high drama, Bradford (The Cavendon Luck, 2016) furthers the Cavendon saga with intricately textured tales of passion and betrayal.--Haggas, Carol Copyright 2017 Booklist
