        A Future Arrived is a wonderfully old-fashioned book. . . full of characters who value honor, nobility, courage and commitment . . . refreshing.” — Los Angeles Times

        December 1, 2014

        Originally published during the 1970s, at the height of Upstairs Downstairs mania, Rock's trilogy follows the wealthy Greville family as they navigate the changes wrought by the war. As with Downton Abbey, it's a family saga featuring plenty of drama; unlike Downton Abbey, the portrayal of the horrors of World War I is quite detailed and graphic. The full trilogy spans the years from 1914 through the 1930s.
