Downton Abbey and My Book
I didn’t watch Downton Abbey when it was appearing on TV mostly because I have a hard time keeping up with weekly serials. This fall, I bought the entire series and am really enjoying the story.
But what does it have to do with my book?
In the first season, the residents of Downton Abbey live through the First World War. We see very few scenes of the war itself, just enough to realize it was horrible beyond imagination. But we see those at Downton dealing with other aspects of the war. Downton became a rehabilitation hospital. Some went off to war. Some were injured. Some never returned at all. Life after the war was different than before and required people adapt. And that’s where my War Brides series is like them. It shows how a man and woman cope with life after the war.
Lizzie is finally able to reunite with the Canadian soldier she married back in England but so many things have changed, including him. And life in Canada is not what she had dreamed. She comes from a family that enjoys music and art. A happy fun-filled family. Her husband, Caleb, comes from a family that is sober and sadly lacking in fun in her opinion. But worse than that is the discovery that Caleb is not the man she remembers. In this new land can she find new hope? Can they find love to bring them together as man and wife? Or will she return home?
Lizzie–the first of the War Brides series–has been given a new cover. I hope you like it. It is available for purchase now at a reduced price.
