There are some books that I just savor every word, like a very rich dessert or perfect meal. The Morland Dynasty books have been such a find. This latest tome I had to get from the library and it finally was available earlier this month
Back in 2007 my friend Teddi offered me a series of books on English history. Beginning in the 14th century, the story of the fictional Morland family unveils the evolution of English culture, politics, religion, royalty and peasant. I devoured the first 20 or so of the series that year and collected the rest and read them all over the past few years to come up to this one, The Winding Road, #34, which covers 1925 into 1931.
The author makes me feel I am living with her characters. Their hopes, dreams, tragedies and everyday life are woven into the real stories of the events and people who shaped history.
I passed the 30+ paperbacks on to another friend. Teddi passed away last August and these books are only one of many blessings she brought to my life.
