    Probably closer to 45 stars but I'm rounding up because this book hit the reading need I was hoping it would I'd read a couple of lackluster books before this and I was craving simply and not much else a good story This book filled the ticket perfectly It felt like a good old fashioned 80s or 90s TV mini series which is one of my favorite guilty pleasures My only complaint was that I had a bit of trouble keeping characters straight in my head Part of that is my fault because it has been many years in between this and the first book in the series I wish the author would have been kind and reminded us who everyone was and how they related to the overall story I'm going to try to be better about finding and reading book #3 If I can track it down I will read it yet this year 545370

    A good second book in the series To me the most interesting part was the sinking of the Luisitania

    I didn’t realize this book was part of a series and so I hadn’t read book 1 That wasn’t a big issue though as you could pick up on most of the plot and what had happened before The premise of the story was good an estate in Yorkshire and the book is built on following the different parts of the members of the main family and their servants as WW1 has started I just found the writing to not be very good Some sentences didn’t make sense and as one character was being focused on there might be a reference to an unrelated character in the future which just didn’t connect very well

    Turbulent and very sad time in history and how people struggled with the changes it brought about The author kept the characters true from the first book Rutherford Park Looking forward to the next one
