Benedict Morland's comfortable life is overset when an old enemy's dying wish leaves him guardian of an orphaned boy. No-one, including his wife Sibella, can understand why Benedict accepts Lennox Mynott into his household and, amid growing hostility at Morland Place, he takes the boy to America, to join his daughter Mary at Twelvetrees Plantation. Here, Benedict, as well as Lennox, fall in love with the Southern way of life, just at the moment when bitter civil war is about to destroy it forever.
The Outcast is one book in the long and excellent series- The Morland Dynasty by Cynthia Harrod Eagles.
This book is #21 in the Morland Dynasty series and the first to spend so much time out of England. It takes place during the American Civil War, and about half the book is about characters who are in the Charleston, South Carolina area during the war. The other half is about characters back home in York and Manchester.

The Civil War part of the story was interesting and well-written, although any fan of Gone with the Wind will find some parts similar - but how could they not be? What's done well is the English-born Mary's reaction to slavery and how women's lives were lived in the upper-class Southern homes, also well-written was a battle scene involving an in-law of Mary's - a first-person scene that was NOT something found in GWTW.

The part of the story that took place in England was also interesting, covering the changing of laws regarding divorce, although I felt that the problems between Charlotte and Oliver were a little contrived and out-of-the-blue, written to highlight the divorce issues. It also covers some of the problems for England during the Civil War - the loss of cotton shipments for their mills, which caused a great deal of hardship, and the debate about whether England should support the South.

One thing that puzzled me - on Cynthia Harrod-Eagles website, the blurb about this book includes mention of the Underground Railway - which I don't remember seeing in the book at all. Nevertheless, I love this series of books and will immediately be ordering the next volume!
I highly recommend this series, especially to lovers of English history or those who like family sagas. I was completely hooked after the first book and have been steadily making my way through the series. But this one was a bit disappointing. Too much time is spent in South Carolina during the Civil War for a book that is supposed to be covering English history as experienced by one family through the years. It would have been more in keeping with the theme if this book had covered how Civil War induced cotton shortages affected the cotton mills and workers in Manchester. But don't let this keep you from reading the series.
