    Gleefully in love, Christina and Will leave their lives in the countryside in a pursuit to make their dreams come true. But Will is determined to design and pilot flying machines, meaning Christina is left alone... Meanwhile, the beginning of World War I is approaching.

    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.
