Ms. Bradford will discuss her latest book, Cavendon Hall, an epic saga of intrigue and mystique set in Edwardian England. Cavendon Hall is home to two families, the aristocratic Inghams and the Swanns who serve them. With World War I looming, both families will find themselves tested in ways they never thought possible. Loyalties will be challenged and betrayals will be set into motion. In this time of uncertainty, one thing is sure: these two families will never be the same again.
"First there was A Woman of Substance . . . and now from the same author comes an evocative and captivating story, filled with fascinating and compelling characters, drama, intrigue, love, passion, and revenge . . . set against the backdrop of a great ancestral home in Yorkshire. Vintage storytelling from ‘Britain's premier romantic novelist.’" —Daily Mail on Cavendon Hall.
“Every novel from this acclaimed and beloved author is avidly read, and its engrossing historical dimension, family traumas, romance, and vivid setting will prove irresistible." —Booklist on Letters from a Stranger
