    • This is the second book in what is called "War at Home". "Goodbye Piccadilly" was the first. The story follows the upper middle class Hunter family: parents, children, cousins, in-laws during 1915 when England was realizing this little battle with Germany was going to be a lot bigger and deadly than was first believed. We follow the romance of Charles and Diana that blossomed in Goodbye Piccadilly. Also the newlyweds Jack and Beth have to face the separation that war causes. I really loved this [...]


    • Family saga 1915Volume two of the saga of the Hunter family and others during the First World War. The author does a great job of showing the story based on the home front, yet getting in enough information about what was happening on the various battlefields. There are rather a lot of characters to keep up with, and I suspect binge-reading the series might be best. But the cast is representative of their various classes - struggling to come to terms with the changes the war brings - social, pol [...]


    • This is the second volume in a collection by one of my favorite authors, Cynthia Harrod-Eagles. She writes in this set of books about England during World War I. This book continues the story of the Hunter family, their servants, and their friend during 1916. Diana Hunter is eagerly awaiting her up-coming marriage to Lord Dene, Charles Wroughton. Her older brother David is in training and excited about going to fight in France; sister Sadie is helping to train horses for combat; the other childr [...]


    • Well, I told myself I'd try one more book in this series, and now that I've finished it, I've decided that I'm done with the series. It's not that the author's writing is bad; it's just that I'm not into the whole British aristocracy scene. I simply did not like some of the characters. The thing that put me over the edge was a scene where London is being bombed by the Germans, people are being killed and injured, and one of the female characters comments, "The milkman was so late we had to have [...]


    • Second book in this series about First World War and residents of Northcote. I am still finding the story a little slow going but quite enjoyable. Must admit however that in my opinion these stories do not quite live up to the author's Morland Series of books.



    • I do like Cynthia Harrod-Eagles historical novels! This one did not disappoint, although it being only the second in this saga it does not have the depth of the Morlands - yet



    • I was provided with an arc in return for an honest review.This is the first book I’ve read by Cynthia Harrod-Eagles and I have to be honest I did find it a little difficult at first getting into the story as I hadn’t read the first book in the War at Home series so I was struggling with all the characters. Once I got my head around all the characters I was fascinated how families, villagers and even soldiers coped with the cumulative events of 1915. It was both terrifying and heartbreaking. [...]


    • I have never watched Downton Abbey, but I am guessing from what I have heard that if you like that TV series then you would thoroughly enjoy this book. But let me recommend that you start with the first one in the series. I didn't realize that this was part of a series, but it was a good read all on its own. At times it was a bit of a challenge to keep all the stories and family connections straight, but it was a wonderful glimpse of the effects of WW I on those left behind and experiencing nume [...]


    • This was a good continuation of the "War at Home" series. In this one, the war clearly wasn't over by Christmas of 1914, so more people are getting involved. London is being bombed by zeppelins (when they can find their target!) and more people are being sent off to fight in France. This series is written with each book representing a year during WWI, so by virtue of this, it's written quite differently than the author's Morland family series. She does a great job of writing about the war from s [...]


    • This is a saga that sucks the reader into the family life, much as Downton Abbey does, as the family and England are immersed further and further into the horrors of war. Even with the Great War in 1915 as the topic, the author incorporates English chatter that is delightful and sometimes even hilarious, such as the incident when the policewomen escort a drunken soldier to train. I'll be watching for further novels from Harrod-Eagles.


    • I am enjoying the series, although I am still missing the Morlands. While this series concentrates on the home front during the war, rather than the battlefields, I do think it was done better in the Morland series, which also essentially covered the war at a year per book.That said, I am warming to the characters, and I look forward to the next volume.


    • I had not read the prequel to this, so did struggle a little at the beginning working out who all the characters were. Overall, not a bad read, but not the most gripping story I've ever read about the great war


    • This is not one of Harrod - Eagles' best efforts, in fact it's hard to believe she wrote it. The writing is poor, dialogue stilted and it's kind of corny, as if he thought she better produce some sort of war book because of World War 1 commemorations last year.Not recommended.





    • This is better than the first book in the series but still slow to start. It gets better as it goes on. More commentary on what Britain was like at home during WWI.
