REVIEW Secrets of Cavendon (Cavendon Hall #4) by Barbara Taylor Bradford

Hardcover, 448 pages
Published November 21st 2017 by St. Martin's Press

From the #1 New York Times bestselling author, a stunning, epic novel featuring the characters of the beloved Cavendon series

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.

My Thoughts…

The Secrets of Cavendon is the perfect title for the fourth book in this series.    In this book there are so many secrets revealed.   As each secret is revealed the story falls together more and more.   The reasons for different characters reactions, positions in the family, and reasons for living as they do start to make sense as the readers learn more and more about this amazing family.   

I have read the first three books and found that while not necessary it did help to understand that characters better.    I liked that this book featured Victoria and Alicia.    The Secrets of Cavendon is these two amazing ladies story.  They both are strong, faithful, family women who have grown up knowing that they have to stand up for themselves but have amazing family support behind them also.  

There were times that all the characters, especially those who were not prominently featured in this book, were hard to keep track of.  I am not sure I know exactly who is who, who was married to whom, and who’s children where who’s.   But the current characters were easy to follow and enjoy their stories.   

I must mention the cover.   It is elegant, beautiful, and perfect for the Cavendon family.      The cover portrays everything that the family is.   While you can pick up any of the 4 books in this series and enjoy them I would recommend picking them up in order and enjoying getting to know this family.
