Beneath the Dover Sky – The Danforths of Lancashire: by Murray Pura

About the book: The year is 1924 and things are definitely looking up for the Danforths.  The family patriarch, William Danforth, has been grated the title Marquess of Preston.  Britain is at peace and all is well at both Ashton Park and Dover Sky, the family’s summer estate.  But as the uncertainties of life unfurl, questions await answers…especially for the seven Danforth sons and daughters.
  • Can the widowed Catherine find love when sought after by two suitors?
  • How can Kipp manage his love for two women?
  • Will Libby and Michael’s unlikely solution to their inability to have children be a blessing…or a source of trouble?
  • Can Victoria and Ben accept what could be the end of Ben’s flying career?
  • With Robbie stationed with the British Army in Jerusalem, can he and his young family be safe amidst the riots?  Will peace ever come to the Holy Land?
  • Will Edward’s move into the political arena bring success…or failture?
  • Is Emma destined to become the wife of a bishop as Jeremy advances in the Anglican church?
Review: “Beneath the Dover Sky” is the second book in a series called The Danforths of Lancashire and the first book I have read by author Murray Pura.  I struggled to get through this book.  It’s not a bad book, but for me I had difficulty keeping the many characters separate.  Perhaps if I had read the first in this family saga, it would have been more enjoyable.  (rev. P.Howard)

DISCLOSURE: A copy was won in a Goodreads.com contest.
