The Warrior's Grandson: The Manninghams Trilogy
Let the Manningham family introduce themselves and, if you will indulge them, they would like to take you on a saga that spans three continents and three generations, holding a conversation with history with cocktails of love, class and conflict on land and sea, from the peaceful prairies of Canada to the wartime terrors of the Western Front.
For, unbeknown to the Manninghams, fate has worse things in store than that photograph in The News of the World. Every day their world of privilege and comfort is sliding closer to the cliff-edge of war. Will their patrician sense of duty be enough to see them through dangers as deep as U-boats and as dark as Africa? How can love compete with death in the fields of Flanders?
Let the Manninghams invite you in as Victorians and bow out as Edwardians, and share their laughter and their grief.
Be their guest.
