Set around World War I, Rowan puts everything into nursing war patients while trying not to think of her own husband, Mort’s, safety. I loved the first two books of the Cresswell Inheritance Trilogy so I was really looking forward this release. Not really going over the story.

The inheritance trilogy. It is a place of ancient stone, its walls overgrown by vines and guarded by beasts that do not exist

The inheritance trilogy. I Am not as I once was. They have done this to me, broken me open and torn out my heart. I do not know who I am anymore. I must try to remember. It is a place of ancient stone, its walls overgrown by vines and guarded by beasts that do not exist. People there walk slowly and speak softly out of respect for the generations that have trodden those streets before, or perhaps just because they do not feel like being loud.

The third novel in a historical series set in Devon in the early 20th century, following the fortunes of a large aristocratic family before, during and after the First World War. It is spring 1915. Far away in France, the Great War was not over by Christmas as was confidently predicted. It shows no sign of ending, and the peaceful calm of Cresswell Manor in Devon has been shattered. It is now a convalescent home for soldiers from the Front. They arrive in increasing numbers to recover from their wounds—their minds and bodies broken. The old social order is crumbling as surely as time begins to breach the walls of the ancient manor house. With their menfolk away at the Front, the women left behind take on the burden of running the estate, as well as their homes and households, working harder than they ever have before. Some of the women battle on and remain faithful, while loneliness encourages others to stray. Will life ever be the same again for Rowan, in conflict with society and fearful of what the future may hold; or for Esmeralda, who is riddled with guilt? Is it too late for Hannah to find her life's companion, and will Dolly ever be reconciled with the man she loves? These and many other conflicts add drama to this glorious saga of home life against the terrible backdrop of the war to end all wars.

The Breached Wall is the third in a trilogy about two families before, during and after World War I, the aristocrate Cresswells and the family of successfull businessman Stan Eldridge.

After the first two boks (The Broken Gate, The Heart's Citadel), The Breached Wall starts in spring 1915 at the beginning of World War I. Part of Cresswell Manor, the Cresswell family home i Devon, has been made into a reconvalescent home for injured soldiers, who are tended to by female volunteers and nurses. It's yet early days but slowly the seriousness of the war becomes apparent. The many young men who are enlisted, seemingly only for training in order to protect England against "The Huns", are more and more often shipped to the front, leaving the women to carry the burdens at home.

Against the background of the war, the aristocracy, particularly its females, continue their lives seemingly undisturbed in their fine homes. Tended to by their servants, and keeping up the ever important "etiquette", they cling to a world which, unbeknowst to most of them, is about to disappear. After the Victorian and Edwardian areas, World War I does not only wipe out a whole generation of young men, it also changes the lifestyle of the English upper classes forever.

It is fascinating to read how Anita Burgh captures the essence of "Old England". The aristocracy, the wealthy but socially unacceptable pursuers of trade - and the poor - servants and workers with menial skills. The difference between the living conditions of the upper and lower classes is huge. Yet, the working classes take as much pride in their stature as the privileged aristocracy. A trait which has always been very English, and which exists even today.

Anita Burgh goes into every detail of daily life. The way people think, dress, talk. She manages the somewhat stilted speech of the aristocracy as easily as the simple, yet distinct, straightforward and grammatically lacking language of the servants.

The all over drama in the book is the war and its effect on society as a whole. The lives of the people at Cresswell Manor and the nearby village are changed forever. There are tragedies and hardship and at the same time happiness found in ways that would have been unthinkable before the war. The various characters are strong and very much alive. The pompeous butler, the high tempered bustling cook secretly dreaming of love, and the timid, and sometimes obnoxious, young maids. The Lord of the Manor, Mortie is a kind and peace-loving man struggling in the shadow of lady Coral, difficult, hysterical and snobbish in the extreme. They are all there and love does indeed blossom among the gentry as well as in the kitchen and the servants' quarters!

In spite of the ravages of the war, there is a fine sense of humour throughout the book. The friendship between old hypocondriac lady Penelope Cresswell whom everybody fear, and lovely young Rowan, newly married to lady Cresswell's grandson Morts, is one of the highlights. Rowan is not a suitable wife for yong Morts, as a former maid at Cresswell Manor whose father Alf is the family's chaffeur. However, when Rowan manages to "tame" the family matriarch lady Penelope, it causes quite a bit of disturbance both "upstairs" and "downstairs".

Anita Burgh has written a fine family saga about life, war and love which is at the same time entertaining and an important literary picture of a special time in English history.

After World War I the old order of society was gone forever. But all over England magnificent castles and manors still remind us of a time when satin clad ladies fainted prettily, and their "sal volatile"!

This book is the third in a family saga and I should probably enjoy it even more if I had read the first two in the series. That being said, it was still a good WW1 family story, involving an aristocratic family and the families of their estate workers. Former maid, Rowan, has married the son of the Creswell family, much to the horror and disastisfaction of both families, the Creswells because of the disgrace of their son and heir marrying a servant and Rowan's own family who feel that she's gotten above herself and her proper station in life. The estate workers show themselves to be even more snobbish than their employers! The Manor has been converted into a convalescent home for wounded officers, with many of the estate girls, including Rowan, working long and hard hours as orderlies. Problems which would be known to readers of the first two books are eventually sorted out or else come to a horrifying climax. I enjoyed this as an individual read for its' descriptions of life above and below stairs in 1915, but would undoubtedly appreciated it more had I read the first two books.
