eBook available at your favorite eRetailer.

Readers everywhere are clamoring for books like Downton Abbey, the hit PBS Masterpiece Theater series that’s taken America by storm. Those readers have become enthusiastic about The Danforths of Lancashire by award-winning author Murray Pura.

In this stunning conclusion to the saga, we find Lord Preston and his family are gathered in London in the late 1930s for what turns out to be a homecoming.  The family is finally all together again, gathering in a way they haven’t been able to do for years. But looming ahead is the summer and fall of 1940 when both the Battle of Britain and the Blitz will occur.  Though the family is blissfully unaware of this soon-to-be reality, Lord Preston, privy to top secret info in his position in the government, has grave concerns; the gravest he’s ever had, that England will be invaded.  The Danforth family patriarch does his best to hide his fears with a cheerful exterior, but is he successful?

"This whole series is engrossing and engaging as author Murray Pura brings the Danforth family and history to vibrant life. The characters and situations are real and complex in shades of grey, not simplistic black and white, and yet ultimately more satisfying. Pura is one of the few Christian fiction writers that demonstrates this degree of depth and complexity, and one of the few that I enjoy reading and I highly recommend."
