Kort biografi
Cynthia Harrod-Eagles was born on13 August 1948 in Shepherd's Bush, London, England, where was educated at Burlington School, a girls' charity school founded in 1699, and at the University of Edinburgh and University College London, where she studied English, history and philosophy. She had a variety of jobs in the commercial world, starting as a junior cashier at Woolworth's and working her way down to Pensions Officer at the BBC. 

She wrote her first novel while at university and in 1972 won the Young Writers' Award with The Waiting Game. The birth of the MORLAND DYNASTY series enabled Cynthia Harrod-Eagles to become a full-time writer in 1979. The series was originally intended to comprise twelve volumes, but it has proved so popular that it has now been extended over thirty. In 1993 she won the Romantic Novelists' Association Romantic Novel of the Year Award with Emily, the third volume of her Kirov Saga, a trilogy set in nineteenth century Russia. She is also the author of Bill Slider Mystery series, and writes under the pen names Elizabeth Bennett and Emma Woodhouse.

She currently lives in London with her husband. They had have three children, Hannah, Jane and Michael. Apart from writing, her passions are music (she plays in several amateur orchestras) horses, wine, architecture and the English countryside.
aka Elizabeth Bennett, Emma Woodhouse



Keep the Home Fires Burning by Cynthia Harrod-Eagles is the second book in the War at Home series. This volume covers the second year of World War I, that of 1915. The men are marching off to war and the women are left at home to pick up the pieces and in some cases to do the men’s jobs.

We follow along with the Hunter family and while eldest sister, Diana experiences a terrible loss, younger sister, Sadie continues to train horses to be sent to the French front. She is feeling an attraction to the local vet, John Courcy, but he then enlists and is off to France. The two elder Hunter brothers, David and Bobby have enlisted as well. David is fighting from the trenches in France while Bobby has decided to become a pilot. There are a number of characters to follow and at times I had to stop and refresh my memory on how they were all connected to the Hunter family. Some are relatives, some are servants and some are friends but all are being touched by the war and having to make changes and sacrifices in their own lives.

This book ends as 1915 comes to a close and I am now looking forward to the next book, The Land of My Dreams which will cover 1916. The author is an accomplished writer and her research is impeccable making these books not only a great story but also very informative on all aspects of Britain at war.

Another well written Bill Slider story. It appears a woman has fallen downstairs and died but Slider never accepts face values and under pressure from senior officers resolves to find out who the woman is and why she died. As usual a parade of unusual and interesting characters people the plot with witty dialogue accompanying them.

I received a copy of this novel from the publisher via Netgalley.

I do love this series, although I found some of the banter (especially at the beginning) a bit contrived. I'm glad Atherton's personal life takes the turn it does in this book, and Slider's daughter Kate was very entertaining. The case itself was well-plotted, although so well clued that I kept having to wait for the police to catch up.
