With Downton-Abbey appeal and a meandering pre-World War II story, The Cavendon Luck is classic Barbara Taylor Bradford.bbradford-cavendonluck

Recommended readers:

  • If you like Downton Abbey and other Edwardian English dramas
  • If you’re a fan of Barbara Taylor Bradford’s family sagas
  • If you enjoy a turn of the century, changing of times family drama

Here’s my Rankings:

  • 4/5 for characters
  • 4/5 for plot
  • 4/5 overall
  • 2/5 steaminess (a disturbing scene in the early part of the book bumped this up from a very tame 1)


The third book in the Barbara Taylor Bradford-Cavendon Series, The Cavendon Luck meets up with our favorite characters from her previous books as the influential and connected Ingram and Swam families navigate pre-war times. Much like all her books, Cavendon Luck meanders with several plotlines – maybe even one of the most dramatic times in English history. It’s easily my favorite of the Cavendon Series.
