More About This Title The Oak Apple


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 1630, and when civil war destroys the long years of peace in England, the clash between King and Parliament is echoed at Morland Place. Richard, the heir, brings home a Puritan bride, while his dashing brother Kit joins the Royalist cavalry under prince Rupert, leaving their father, Edmund, desperately trying to steer a middle course.  As the war grinds on, bitterness replaces early fervor and divisions grow deeper, and through it all Edmund struggles grimly to protect his inheritance and keep Morland Place intact.
