In Manchester, James's wife Mary Anne becomes embroiled in the plight of the working poor. Lucy, Lady Aylesbury, is most of the focus of the 12th book in the Morland Dynasty series. Her lover Weston is a captain in the Navy; her husband Chetwyn develops a friendship with a young man, and their relationship causes much scandal. Haworth, Mary's husband, is also a captain in the Navy, and witnesses firsthand the Battle of Trafalgar. Lucy's relationship with Weston sails along (pardon the pun), until...

This is a pretty decent addition to the series, although I felt that Lucy was a bit foolish at times and Chetwyn very hypocritical. Chetwyn is definitely not one of my favorite characters in this series, though I hope he improves with time. Nobody seems particularly happy or optimistic about the future, which can make for some pretty bleak reading a times. Cynthia Harrod-Eagles is especially adept at describing great historical moments; the Battle of Trafalgar is depicted with painstaking precision, significant considering that it is the lynchpin that holds this book in the series together. British naval history is not an area in which my knowledge or interest is strong, but there were several scenes that had me gripped! This entry in the Morland saga is a bit of a downer, but it's still a good read.

I love the Morland books. They are interesting as novels but have a wonderful historical perspective. The history is very naturally included as part of the life of the people of the family and makes very clear how political and military events affect the life of the "family" we follow.
Of course, that's always true but reading history in this way makes it more alive and vivid. Cynthia Harrod Eagles is very skilled at doing just this.

In 1803, Naopleon Buonaparte is set to invade England with a huge navy, leaving the English fleet of old, tired ships under the command of Admiral Horatio Nelson to protect its shores. In this, the 12th in the Morland family series, affairs of the heart bode ill for many of its members. Lucy's estranged husband, Lord Chetwyn is allowing his affection for a young man to damage his credibility and that of his family, while Lucy's long time lover, Weston is away at sea for most of the time, blockading Brest, where the French fleet is tied up. At Morland Place in the north, James's wife, Mary Anne, spends as much time away with her father as she does at home and while there on a visit, suffers the consequences of mixing with the poor and diseased who are battling cholera. It's not a happy time for any of the family and I hope that it's merely a bridging time until the next episode.

This book was very interesting. I had to read other history books at the same time as reading Dynasty 12 to help me to understand the history period

Loved it. Only thing that lets it down once again are all the typing errors. They are a bit off-putting.
