Beneath the Dover Sky

Last fall I reviewed the first book in this series and I seriously enjoyed it. I just finished reading the next book in the series, Beneath the Dover Sky, which continues the story of the Danforth family in the years between the two World Wars. Among the seven children, Libby is returning home from the United States, Catherine has moved to the summer home of the Danforths--an estate called Dover Sky, Kipp is widowed when Christelle dies of cancer, Edward runs for a parliament seat and is elected, Robbie and Shannon are stationed in Israel to keep peace among all the factions, Victoria's husband Ben and Libby's husband Mike enter into a flying race and crash--costing Mike his life and Ben his legs, Emma and her husband Jeremy are living in London where Jeremy is a vicar. There are a few new characters in this book, a baron from Germany, a theology professor, a Naval leftenant commander, and a few others to round out the story.

Murray Pura has researched the era he's writing about to show how the political climate allowed Hitler to rise to power, and how the Great Depression in the US affected the rest of the world.

This book is definitely worth the read. Five Stars, Two Thumbs Up, and a summer home in Dover.
