The Founding: The Moreland Dynasty by Cynthia Harrod-Eagles

What a fabulous book, I want to read more! Now in the desperate search for book two.

This is the story of Eleanor, married to a wealthy family in a turbulent England. The story unfolds with moving from her beloved Dorset to Yorkshire with her husband and his father. Eleanor is actually a woman before her times, who later on has her focus on the business of the family and bringing up her children. This is a storyline that reminds us of that in previous times, women were possessions of their spouses, who should produce male heir's to continue the family name and wealth. This was a time that to marry for love was a bonus!

If you enjoy historical novels then this is a good series to read, for the author has clearly spent much time researching 15th Century England.

Going into my permenant collection for a wee while, until I locate my own copy
