Description
The third and final installment of the saga of the Greville family of Abingdon Pryory, following The Passing Bells and Circles of Time, begins in 1930 as the dizzy gaiety of the Jazz Age comes unraveled in the spreading malaise of the Great Depression. What follows is a decade of change and uncertainty, as the younger generation, born during or just after the "war to end all wars," comes of age. American writer Martin Rilke has made his journalistic mark, earning worldwide fame through his radio broadcasts, and young Albert Thaxton seeks to follow in his footsteps as a foreign correspondent. Derek Ramsey, born only weeks after his father fell in France, and Colin Ross, a dashing Yankee, leave their schoolboy days and enter Royal Air Force pilot training, while the beautiful Wood-Lacy twins, Jennifer and Victoria, and their passionate younger sister Kate strive to forge independent paths, all hoping for a brighter future despite the storm clouds gathering again in Europe. Originally published between 1979 and 1985 and now back in print, Phillip Rock's Passing Bells trilogy has become enormously popular with fans of Downton Abbey, chronicling the sweeping changes of the early 20th century through the fortunes of an aristocratic British family.

"A Future Arrived is a wonderfully old-fashioned book ... full of characters who value honor, nobility, courage and commitment."LATimes
