A Downton Abbey Substitute
If you enjoyed Downton Abbey you will appreciate this third book of the Swann family. This story takes place during the run-up to WW I. There is a good segment on the assassination of Archduke Ferdinand. This period of struggle in society played large in the book with women's sufferage, union organization and a segment going into the on going struggles in Ireland included.
There are, of course, the interwoven stories of the Swann children as they progress into adulthood and middle age. Many of the adult Swann children played a part in the various social struggles and changes.
Until Downton Abbey returns, the Delderfield books will serve as my Downton "fix".
