Praise for Easterleigh Hall at War

“Captivating ... prefect for lovers of Downton Abbey. Someone send Julian Fellowes a copy quick, it will be his next hit.”

Frost Magazine

“Graham beautifully captures the period when young men were returning gravely injured from the trenches and the upstairs-downstairs society was beingforced to change at home.”
