The Emperor (Morland Dynasty)

In the Morland Dynasty series, the majestic sweep of English history is richly and movingly portrayed through the fictional lives of the Morland family. It is 1705, and the shadow of Napoleon is falling across Europe, and a restlessness seems to be changing mores and loosening society’s restraints. At Morland Place, James’ marriage to Mary Ann is falling apart; Lucy’s to Chetwyn is in the balance as she embarks on a blatant affair with a sea officer; and William supports a mistress he cann

    This review is from: The Emperor (Morland Dynasty) (Paperback)

    I’ve read all the Morland books and while some drag a little, usually the characters grab me and I want to know what happens to them – who they came from and where they are going. I find the writing clear, readable and very, very historically developed. There is no easier way to wend your way through the history of England and to some degree USA and France. I once wrote to the author to suggest she go back and “fill in” some of the huge gaps in the earlier years and I dread the books ending as they surely must as we approach modern times. I guess you could call me a Morland addict. And I’m happy to have addicted my daughter and best friend. Just relax and enjoy!

    This review is from: The Emperor (Morland Dynasty) (Paperback)

    Napoleon is on the rise, yes, but the Emperor in this case could easily be the Emperor butterfly which briefly makes an appearance. Jemima Morland’s children are all grown up, and making their own decisions–and mistakes. Both Lucy and James carry on affairs and create scandals, and Mary joins her husband on board his ship, where she gives birth during the battle of the Nile.

    The more I read this series, the more character development I find is occurring. Jemima’s not one of my favorite Morland heroines, and her children makes some questionable judgment sometimes, but the characters in this part of the series feel a lot more fleshed out and real to me, more believable, probably because of their flaws. After all, everybody makes mistakes, and everybody (I would hope) learns from those mistakes.

    In the previous installment of the series, I believe I mentioned how sometimes in the Morland Dynasty series a character will come in and declaim about the current political/religious/etc. situation. Because some of the characters are literally at the forefront of what’s going on, the reader literally gets a front-row seat to those events. This is another reason why I prefer this installment to the series to some of the others.
