Meredith Allardabout this book: What would you get if Charles Dickens had written Downton Abbey?
Over the past six years, Downton Abbey has become one of the most beloved television series of all time. I have been as in love with that series as millions of others all over the world. I was lucky enough to have a bestseller with the Loving Husband Trilogy, and after I finished writing the trilogy I wanted to return to my original love--writing historical fiction. I ended up combining my love for Downton Abbey with my love for the books of Charles Dickens, and I like to think I ended up with a unique twist on the classic upstairs/downstairs tale. Although When It Rained at Hembry Castle isn't fan fiction in the literal sense, it is a fan fiction of sorts since it would not have evolved into the story it is without my love for Downton Abbey. I was even lucky enough to visit London twice to do some research for the novel.
I hope everyone who reads When It Rained at Hembry Castle loves the story and the characters as much as I do.
