Summary

The family saga continues in this sequel to Davenport House, resuming where book one leaves off in the spring of 1915. The family and servants must face their fears amid love and jealousy, grief and moving forward, and the threat of imminent war with the world.

The restructure of an upper-class family affects all who live on the Pennsylvania estate. Twenty-two-year-old Mary Davenport stays occupied with modernizing the house, but insecurities arise when she develops romantic feelings for the first time.

A wealthy socialite persuades one of the ladies to join her on a voyage aboard the exquisite Lusitania. Handsome Ethan is forced to move into the mansion after a fire destroys his home. Tensions rise as Davenport House enters a new chapter with more challenges than anyone is prepared for.

Great historical listen

Great series! This book picks up from the events of the first book and continues the story, so make sure to listen to these in order. Great narrator too! I received a free review copy of this audiobook at my request and I have voluntarily left this review.

Another great addition to the story

Definitely read the first book before jumping into this one. Enjoyed the characters. The first part moved a little slowly but picked up. Another great book.

A great continuation

The girls are coming into their own. Now the estate is in Mary’s hands things are starting to work out for everyone. Then again, maybe not everything...there are still people working towards their own gains, and this does not bode well for the girls.
This book also leads into the next and is not a stand-alone.

This is the second book I’ve read/listened to by this author and I would love listen to another. I want to read the entire series. I love the fact Mary has taken control of the household and is a strong character.

This is the second book I’ve listened to by this narrator (previously listened to Davenport House Book 1) and I would listen to another. She reads this period well. Her voices for the males and females are discernible and well chosen. Her expression is appropriate and draws me into the stories.

There are no explicit sex scenes, excessive violence or swearing.

A Sweet Story with Sweet Characters

I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.
It is an ideal world the one that has transformed a house with too many secrets. Now that they are all revealed a benevolent influence seems to permeate most characters with the exception of one or two villains. A relaxing, enjoyable narrative well interpreted by the performer. If you like period novels, you will definitely like this one and will rejoice for the happy endings all around.

Historic Fiction

Any additional comments?

This is the second book in the series and not a stand alone. It is a clean story with no sex. The first book was a mystery and this one leans toward a romance. The time period is just before the beginning of the First World War. The characters are deepening and developing. I was very satisfied with the story conclusion and I am looking forward to the third book in the series, very enjoyable!

Davenport House 2

This story picks up right where book 1 left off. I enjoyed seeing how the storyline progressed for Mary, Clara, Abigail and all the rest of the characters.

Great Continuation!

I enjoy listening to historical books from time to time and found this one to be very well done. I think this book is a great continuation to the story, but not the full story. I really was engrossed with the first book, and the second book is very good, but not the full story, so it continues again. I think Allyson Voller did a fantastic performance. She is able to put so much into the various characters. I requested this review copy audiobook and have voluntarily written this review. I will definitely listen to the next book in the series.

An excellent continuation

This book picks up immediately after the end of the first book, the books need to be listened to in order for them to make sense. This book deals with the main characters finding their feet now that they are in control of their lives. Each struggles with carving out a niche for themselves while also figuring out their relationship with the other key characters.

There's a lot of character growth in this book along with some intrigue and it's very enjoyable to listen to. If you liked book one you'll like this one too and I'm eagerly awaiting more parts of this series being available in audio.

The narration is excellent, great character voices and accents and the delivery is smooth and flowing.

I received a free copy of this book from the author and/or narrator and/or publisher and I voluntarily wrote this honest review.
