    I empathize with the characters from this series more than any other fiction I've read and yesterday while sitting in traffic I realized that while re-reading this book in the series that each day I was SO looking forward to the time I would get to read . . . for the simple reason that I would get to "find out what happens to" ___________ fill in the blank with your favorite characters' names here. As I sat there behind the wheel of my car I wondered what the author must do to elicit such strong [...]

    World War I & 1916 is the focus. The War grinds on. Violet's scandal breaks with her falling pregnant to Octavian Laidislaw. But you know, I just never warmed to him at all. He's killed in France which is kind of the easy way out for everyone (this is a constant criticism in this series, particularly the more recent ones). There's the clear implication that Violet's husband, Lord Holkam, safe in HQ has pulled strings to ensure his wife's lover is sent to the frontline as a lowly private & [...]

    Ah WWI was beyond awful. After reading this, I feel as though I lived it. I love how CHE covered every aspect of the war (the women at home, the politics, a pilot, soldiers in the trenches, officers ) with her characters. Yes, the series is getting slightly predictable, but you've got to expect that to an extent with more than 30 books! I'm still in love with the entire series. If I had to say something negative about this particular book, I'd say "what's with this falling in love with cousins a [...]

    Wow! can't believe we're up to #30!!! She's covering less time per book as she gets closer to the present. The most annoying thing about finishing one of the Morland Dynasty books is the long wait for the next one. So, 3 books now and we're still not finished world war one, which is fine, as the storyline is still keeping my interest. I have to admit to skipping over some of the more detailed descriptions about military manoeuvres though. They'd prob fascinate Nick - off to play with toy soldier [...]

    1916, World War I, nursing, the art world, and the troubles of Tsarist Russia are the themes of this volume in the lengthy series of Morland Dynasty books, begun to tell the story of Britain from Richard III's time to ??? It's not clear when Harrod-Eagles will end the series. I learn something new from each book, and enjoy the "soap opera" parts too. So I'll keep reading as long as she keeps writing.

    The Morlands face another year of World War I with many changes. Characters go from living to dead in a paragraph- I was left audibly gasping several times. This book really brings to light the futility of war. Very powerful.

    Before I started this series on World War One, I thought I knew something about the war. I knew nothing. 1916, next comes 1917.
