Bradford is a master at wonderfully detailed, inspiring sagas so when the grand dame writes an upstairs/downstairs tale set in her beloved Yorkshire, readers can be assured a terrific story with passion, drama, history and lush details. Bradford completely captures the atmosphere of the country and the ordinary families caught in the struggles. Readers will rejoice and eagerly await the sure- to-follow sequel.

For centuries Cavendon Hall has been the palatial home of the Inghams and their faithful servants, the Swanns. All is well as the Ingham’s daughter, Daphne, is about to make her debut. But someone is plotting to ruin the family. It begins with tragedy — an act that nearly destroys Daphne. Then, there is a devastating fire and strange sightings that ruin the peace of both families and raise questions of past relationships and present dangers. But it is the war and the ramifications of the conflict that change all their lives. (ST. MARTIN’S, Apr., 300 pp., $27.99)
