The Cavendon Luck by Barbara Taylor Bradford 


From the #1 New York Times bestselling author comes a captivating epic saga of courage and honor, following the aristocratic Inghams and the loyal Swann family who have served them for centuries.

It is 1938 in England, and Miles and Cecily Ingham have lead the family in bringing the Cavendon estate back from the brink of disaster. But now, with the arrival of World War II, Cavendon Hall will face its biggest challenge yet. It is a challenge that will push the Inghams and Swanns to protect each other and the villagers, and reveal their true capacity for survival and rebirth.

Told with Bradford’s deft, evocative prose and featuring a beloved cast of characters, The Cavendon Luck is a story of intrigue, romance, sorrow, and joy that readers won’t soon forget. 


This a a family saga full of every emotion imaginable. Through many challenges and sorrows, this family overcomes and continues to thrive. 

I have not read a Barbara Taylor Bradford book in years. I have enjoyed many of her books. However, this one fell a little short. This novel started a little slow for me, picked up nicely, then bogged down in the middle. The time period is one of my favorites so, that helped. I enjoyed the mystery which floated throughout the read. Kept me very much intrigued. 

There are many characters in this read. Maybe, if I had read the other books first, I would’ve had a better feeling for them. I did tend to get lost with who was who, probably my fault. 

The story did keep me interested till the very end. I did feel there was a lot of useless information not needed to tell the story. That being said, it is still a good read.

I received this book from Netgalley for an honest review
