Autumn on Angel Street: Forrester Saga Book One (Forrester Family Saga 1)
A.R. Davey - 1996
It has been compared to R. F. Delderfield's A Horseman Riding By, The Swann Family Saga and The Dreaming Suburb, and the writing of Harry Bowling. Autumn on Angel Street sweeps readers from the sumptuous Laybourne Manor Estate across South Ridge to the grime of Pincote Colliery and the affluent market town of Pincote Market, to the Belchesters' estate on the Dorset coast and into the bustling streets and squares - and the dockland - of late Victorian London. 1885 - 1891. Three families - the Forresters who are a large coalmining family and have strong socialist views, appear to have little in common with the Laybournes who are their employers and landlords, or with the Belchesters with whom the Laybournes share many diverse business interests. That is until the unstable and unsafe Pincote coalmine triggers a series of events which change all the families' lives in unexpected ways and cause some of the families' younger members to question their inherited beliefs and their true loyalties. Personal and internal family conflicts merge with shared needs and ambitions, and foster an uneasy but increasing dependency of each family upon the other. Hard to resist mutual attractions, and a mixture of human frailty and personal strengths combine with long held and well hidden secrets to create a sequence of events which change everyone’s life for ever in ways no-one could have imagined. Every character is aware of a steady drumbeat that is calling attention to beliefs and desires that cannot be subsumed whatever the cost of satisfying them; but time is running out and the critical Autumn on Angel Street is coming to an end. This Second Edition of Autumn on Angel Street contains some minor editing revisions and some additional content which did not appear in the hardback or paperback First Edition. The sequels in this series are Winter in Paradise Square - now available for purchase from Amazon Spring on Hope Street - which will be available early 2015 Summer in Solomon's Court - which will be available later in 2015
