Secrets of Cavendon


"For years things have run smoothly at Cavendon Hall, with very few quarrels, dramas, or upsets among the Inghams and the Swanns. But since the end of World War II, things have changed. The secrets of Cavendon picks up in the summer of 1949, with the new generation of the estate at the forefront of the scandal and intrigue. With romance, betrayal, heartbreak, and possible murder threatening to tear them apart, the Inghams and Swanns will have to find a way to come together and protect each other in the face of threats they never could have predicted"-- Provided by publisher.

Other Items In This Series

Plain, Belva — Another author who fills her novels with strong female characters on both domestic and business fronts is Belva Plain. Her works share many similarities with Bradford's novels: strong, independent heroines who run their households as well as financial empires; detailed settings and trappings of clothing and culture; love and tragedy. -- Krista Biggs
Cadell, Elizabeth — While Cadell is more of a gentle read than Bradford, they are both famous for their sweeping sagas, often set in exotic locales. -- Rebecca Vnuk
Archer, Jeffrey, 1940- — Readers who appreciate the saga elements and strong women of Bradford's novels might be interested in the early novels of Jeffrey Archer. Both writers create extensive family connections, rich and famous trappings, and business backgrounds for their popular, multi-volume series. They also evince a romantic tone as they explore rich family heritage. -- Ellen Guerci
Meacham, Leila, 1938- — If grand epics that span generations are your style, the old-fashioned family sagas of Leila Meacham and Barbara Taylor Bradford will fit the bill equally well. There's plenty of passion and angst alike to go around from both of them. -- Shauna Griffin
Harrod-Eagles, Cynthia — Both authors write epic, intricately plotted family sagas featuring strong female characters, richly detailed period atmosphere, and romantic tension set against the background of important historical events. -- Derek Keyser
Bagshawe, Tilly — These authors combine strong women, epic romances (Barbara Taylor Bradford's being more steamy), and suspenseful intrigue to create engaging summer reading. Characterized by convoluted relationships, glamour, and high-drama, their books are character-driven, compelling and complex. -- Melissa Gray
Cookson, Catherine — Catherine Cookson's sagas, like Barbara Taylor Bradford's, feature strong female characters; those spirited and likable heroines will appeal to readers of both authors. Cookson's stories feature northern English settings, and involve British class differences, while Bradford's have a wider range of settings. -- Rebecca Vnuk
Steel, Danielle — Stories about the rich and famous and strong working women protagonists and their emotional stories make Danielle Steel an excellent choice for Bradford's fans. -- Krista Biggs
Howatch, Susan — Both authors write sweeping, meticulously detailed, and character-driven family sagas that chronicle the lives of families across generations as they deal with scandalous romances, dangerous historical crises, and the insidious family politics surrounding property and inheritance. -- Derek Keyser
Vincenzi, Penny — Vincenzi's novels are much more glitzy than Bradford's, however, her Spoils of Time Trilogy is a multi-layered saga that follows a high-powered family through the years, much like Bradford's sagas. -- Rebecca Vnuk
Webb, Katherine, 1977- — These authors' works are Suspenseful and Character-driven, and they share: the genres 'Women's lives and relationships' and 'Historical fiction' and the subject 'Family secrets'.
Thomas, Rosie — These authors' works are Descriptive and Character-driven, and they share: the genres 'Women's lives and relationships' and 'Historical fiction' and the subjects 'London, England' and 'Men/women relations'.
