Beneath the Dover Sky by Murray Pura ~ Review

Beneath the Dover Sky (The Danforths of Lancashire #2)My Review: 

Picking up right where Ashton Park left off, following the seven Danforth children as they travel the globe, marry, and have children of their own, in the looming shadow of WWII.

Filled with drama and rich in history, Beneath the Dover Sky follows the Danforths through new heartaches, and new loves, as their family grows and changes.

One of my favorite story threads was that of Libby and Michael and how they adopted a Chinese girl named Jane. Jane was easily my new favorite character, because of her stubborn determination, and sensitive observations, it broke my heart that her new grandparents struggled so to accept her as one of their own. And how she bonded with Terry warmed my heart and made me an instant fan of Terry, as his kindnesses to Jane truly showed the excellent caliber of his character.

Just a side note: I would recommend reading this series in order. Because reading the prequel will make many of the character motivations more clear and their pasts together more understandable.

Overall, this was a fantastic novel, a well written family saga full of diverse characters, each of which walk the earth in their own unique ways, following where the Spirit led. Definitely a series I would recommend for fans of family sagas such as Downton Abbey.
