[quote=""diamondlil""]I am now 200 pages into the first book in the Morland series, and I can already tell you that I will definitely be reading more books in this series. I am really enjoying it so far.[/quote]

Oh goody. I can tell you that many of her characters stay with you for years. From the first novel, I will never forget Eleanor and Robert.

Glad you like it Diamondlil! I really envy you, having 30+ books ahead of you! I started re-reading them last month, I'm on book 11 now. I must have read the earlier books 3 times before this and I still love them.
I actually wrote to Cynthia Harrod-Eagles a few weeks ago, to thank her for writing the books and telling her how my Grandmother and I bonded over them. and also to express my dismay that they are ending so soon!
I got a very very nice response from her, she seems genuinly sad that the books are ending too.

I ended up finishing the first book in two days and have already requested the next book in the series! I really, really enjoyed it!

Well, you can add me to the list of "I've started reading the Morland series and I'm now a big fan." Just finished The Founding. I'm so glad that Eleanor and her family were on the York side in the War of the roses.

I finished the second book in the series (The Dark Rose), with books 3 and 4 on my TBR pile; I'm trying to pace myself. I always get burnout from series books, even if the series is good, so I don't want to do that with this series. Glad to see that other people are enjoying the series!

The new book is available! I just ordered The Fallen Kings from bookdepository.com. It's so bitter sweet, knowing the series is almost over. I really think it's going to be one of the big disappointments of my life.

Supposedly. I keep hoping somehow they'll continue through WWII, I so badly want her to do WWII. I really can't contemplate the end of this!
