Image of Beneath the Dover Sky (The Danforths of Lancashire)

Unlike the first title in the Danforths of Lancashire series, this story focuses primarily on the Danforth family rather than a more even split with the lives of their employees. Pura leaves readers with a cliffhanger as the clan scatters around the globe, promising more stress on the family that only faith and prayer can resolve.

Tragedies continue to unite the Danforth family as the younger generation’s divergent political beliefs, romantic interests and life choices threaten to divide them. William and Elizabeth often seem overly distant and cold regarding their adult children’s troubles, but violent events force them to reassess their tendency to judge and open their hearts instead. New additions to the family fill the pages through marriages and births, and causes for celebration vie for an even weight with ongoing calamities and the catastrophe of WW II looming.
