    Throughout these four books, we get to discover the trials and tribulations that the advent on war put on these intriguing characters. The Edge of the Cloud introduces the characters; while Flambards finds Christina being sent to the country house of the same name to live while The Great War rages. When there, she meets two brothers - and it won't be long until she has to make a choice.

    In Flambards Divided, Christina has married but life is anything but domestic bliss - and she is forced to make a choice between tradition and progression. Flambards in Summer is set in 1916 and the estate is desolate, overgrown and deserted. Christina vows to return the manor house to its former glory - but this is easier said than done...

    Compelling fiction with a historical edge for fans of Downton Abbey, Call the Midwife and National Velvet, Kathleen Peyton's Flambards series is a genteel look into life for those at home during the War.

    Hailing from a family of staunch loyalists, Quinton's first command was lost at sea and he only barely survived. This time around, he is determined to complete his mission with no losses. Vital to this mission is young mariner Kit Farrell, who has promised to teach him how to master the sea in return for Quinton teaching him how to read and write. But the duo face many obstacles as they embark, not least a resentful Cornish crew, a suspicion of murder and a feeling that treason may be closer to home than anyone thought...

    Written by a respected historian, this is a swashbuckling adventure series for fans of Conn Iggulden, Patrick O'Brian and C.S. Forester.
