Product description

Product Description

The year is 1915, and the war is raging on . . .

The war was not 'over by Christmas' after all and as 1915 begins, the Hunters begin to settle into wartime life.

Diana, the eldest Hunter daughter, sees her fiance off to the Front but doesn't expect such coldness from her future mother-in-law. David's battalion is almost ready to be sent to the Front, but how will Beattie's fragile peace of mind endure? Below stairs, Ethel, the under housemaid, is tired of having her beaux go off to war so she deliberately sets her sights on a man who works on the railway, believing he won't be allowed to volunteer. Eric turns out to be decent, honest and he genuinely cares about Ethel - is this the man who could give her a new life?

The Hunters, their servants and their neighbours soon realise that war is not just for the soldiers, but it's for everyone to win, and every new atrocity that is reported bolsters British determination: this is a war that must be won at all costs.

Keep the Home Fires Burning is the second 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 1915, this is an evocative, authentic and wonderfully depicted drama featuring the Hunter family and their servants.

Another fantastic book by Cynthia Harrod-Eagles - I can't wait til the next one comes out this summer. I'm also hopeful that more Morland books are also in the future.

A new series from one of my favorite Authors. Looking forward to book 3. I have never had an easier way to learn historical facts while enjoying a good story as with M. Harrod-Eagles books. I also love her modern novels.

I'm sorry that Cynthia Harrod-Eagles does not go to the end of her stories. At one point Diana is at a ball after her lover died and the Countess took her along to London and she came into contact with the younger son who is now heir to the title. But she does not go to the end of her story and we are kept haning......

I preferred the Morland Dynasty Books
