Marie Silk about this book: A New Chapter is the second book in the Davenport House family saga. The characters move past the confusion and pain of the patriarch's death to begin the next chapter of their lives. The dynamic is ever-changing when new neighbors move onto the estate and the stable boy and groundskeeper move into the great mansion. One of the ladies is invited on a voyage aboard the Lusitania, but the passengers are warned that the ship is heading into a war zone. Relationships are put to the test amid rising tensions from The Great War and more tensions developing within the house.
I enjoyed weaving American history into this second installment of Davenport House. Issues of the time include immigration, healthcare, social prejudice, war tension, and new technology, all of which have a place in the story. My favorite element may be the romantic attachments that develop here, which are only hinted at in the first book.
