i really enjoyed reading the continued adventures of the Morland family. It was especially nice to see how well Charlotte has adapted to her new world and yet still makes it her own. and i love her relationship with Oliver which is somehow modern, but still appropriate for the period (the way she finally realizes how others see her work in the Crimea is priceless).

some of the stuff about the war got a little boring (Oliver's dispatches were a bit like reading a history book and i had a hard tim

Back to the ups and downs of the family in peace time and the tribulations of war time. ..(spoiler alert) I always had an inkling of Cav's return....I've read this series meticulously following the proper order the books were written and I've found it the most enjoyable journey. ..and still 12-14 books to go. ..I love the intertwining of real history with the everyday events of the families' lives and they feel like old friends. .when I finally finish the series I'll definitely be missing someth ...more

Comments taken from my Blog Post (#87) in February 2011, after borrowing the book from the local library.

The continuing sage of the Morland Family, pretty much with with Charlotte - now the Duchess of Southport - as the pin-wheel.

I thoroughly enjoyed it a 4.5 star read, and I can't wait to track down some more of them to continue the tale. Hopefully Book 21 will have more of Fanny's story.

I love this book as much as others in the series, but I'm giving it 4 stars instead of 5 because 1) I didn't think there was enough coverage of a particular character's death and 2) I thought there was too much coverage of the Crimean war. (Yes, I know it's historical fiction & must include the historical events. It was just too much for me and a lot of it didn't have enough to do with the book's main characters.)
Once again the author's description of the battles that took place, this time during the Crimean war, make one feel as if you're right there with the troops every step of the way. Harrod-Eagles doesn't disappoint in taking you straight into the action. Loved it!

This book is not for the faint of heart. Very graphic detail about the Crimean War. The history I learned and the maps made it a 5 star book for me.

#20 in the Morland Dynasty series finds some of the Morlands off to the Crimean War. One of the best of the series.
