Product description

Product Description

In 1914, Britain faces a new kind of war. For Edward and Beatrice Hunter, their children, servants and neighbours, life will never be the same again. Perfect for fans of Downton Abbey and Barbara Taylor-Bradford.

For David, the eldest, war means a chance to do something noble; but enlisting will break his mother's heart. His sister Diana, nineteen and beautiful, longs for marriage. She has her heart set on Charles Wroughton, son of Earl Wroughton, but Charles will never be allowed to marry a banker's daughter. Below stairs, Cook and Ada, the head housemaid, grow more terrified of German invasion with every newspaper atrocity story. Ethel, under housemaid, can't help herself when it comes to men and now soldiers add to the temptation; yet there's more to this flighty girl than meets the eye.

The once-tranquil village of Northcote reels under an influx of khaki volunteers, wounded soldiers and Belgian refugees. The war is becoming more dangerous and everyone must find a way to adapt to this rapidly changing world.

Goodbye Piccadilly is the first book in the War at Home series by Cynthia Harrod-Eagles, author of the much-loved Morland Dynasty novels. Set against the real events of 1914, Goodbye Piccadilly is extraordinary in scope and imagination and is a compelling introduction to the Hunter family.

This author has mastered the fine art of exceptional storytelling from the social perspective of history. Those interested in English life during WWI will not be disappointed. Indepth, engaging characters and believeable storylines interwoven with strands of actual historical figures, places and events, are the hallmarks of Cynthia Harrod-Eagles prolific writing style. She is a true "reader's writer".

3.0 out of 5 stars I mildly pleasant read 19 December 2014
By S. K. Mittleman - Published on Amazon.com

Gynthia Harrod-Eagles is a British novelist who has written many books, among them a very good police procedure series. This book seems to
be the beginning of another series exploring Britain before World War 1...........and, I presume, following it up with subsequent books about what
happens to the characters over time. A mildly pleasant read!
2.0 out of 5 stars I was very disappointed and did not finish the book 26 February 2017

Having read the Morland Dynasty books I expected the same incredible writing. It was as if someone else wrote this book. Characters poorly drawn, insipid dialogue. I was very disappointed and did not finish the book.
