The Dream Kingdom, Paperback

The Dream Kingdom Paperback

Part of the The Morland Dynasty series



Edwardian England is a country at the peak of its power; a kingdom of peace, prosperity and progress.

As Jessie and Violet enjoy their coming-out in the glittering Season of 1908, their thoughts are of pleasure, dancing and falling in love. For the Morlands things seem set fair: new business ventures expand their influence and wealth; there are weddings, babies in the nursery, careers for the boys now reaching manhood.

It is an exciting age, with new technologies - motor cars, telephones, radio, aeroplanes - extending man's control over the natural world. But under the appearance of permanence, a different reality is stirring.

Socialism, the suffrage movement, the constitutional crisis, all call forth ever more dissent and anger.

Increasingly violent protests and strikes disturb the peace; war with Germany looms ever closer.

With the King's death, it begins to seem that the safe Edwardian world was only a dream, from which the wakening will be hard indeed.
