1689: the Resoration enabled the Morland family to restore their own fortune, but now the Jacobite rebellion brings another threat to their security.

Annuciata Morland, fiercely loyal to the Stuart cause, follows her beloved king, James II, into exile. She leaves her gentle grandson, Matt, to oversee Morland Place in her absence. Without her wise presence, Matt finds himself in an arranged marriage to India Neville and at the mercy of a woman as heartless as she is beautiful. After a lonely and sheltered life he lurches between the exquisite pain of love and the torment of deep despair.

When James III - the Chevalier - returns to claim the Stuart throne, the Morlands are reunited in one country. Death and defeat threaten them, but their loves and loyalty prove stronger than kingly ambitions.

If you have not read a line written by Cynthia Harrod-Eagles, I strongly encourage you to do so. One day, my eyes fell on the 2-3 volumes of the Morland Dinasty available in the shelves at the library. After reading a few lines in one of the volumes and a synopsis of the saga, I borrowed the first volume. Now, a few months later, without any break, I am at volume 25 and I am looking forward to reading all 35 volumes. The lecture is very captivating. The characters and their lives become I space so familiar and, as a reader, you are absorbed into the space of the narrative and live the events and emotions of the characters. The discourse is fluid, the characters are very well defined, the historical part is blended smoothly into the fiction, and all these achieved in a decent language that is rare in contemporary literature.
