On the eve of the Battle of Waterloo, two families meet at the Duchess of Richmond's Ball. From this moment on, their stories will be linked by a secret.

Julian Fellowes's Belgravia is a story in 11 episodes published week by week in the tradition of Charles Dickens.

Belgravia is the story of a secret. A secret that unravels behind the porticoed doors of London's grandest postcode. The story behind the secret will be revealed in weekly bite-sized instalments complete with twists and turns and cliff-hanger endings.

Set in the 1840s when the upper echelons of society began to rub shoulders with the emerging industrial nouveau riche, Belgravia is peopled by a rich cast of characters. But the story begins on the eve of the Battle of Waterloo in 1815. At the Duchess of Richmond's now legendary ball, one family's life will change forever...

Also you can't use the 'find' feeature to look up something in a previous chapter without going to a lot of bother. Should have been published as a single volume.

Having read the first nine episodes thus far, I'm eager to read the last two. The episodic presentation is very clever and enticing and, in my opinion, lends itself very nicely to conversion to an interesting TV series. In all, a delightful read.

I have finished episodes 1, 2 and 3 of Julian Fellowes’ BELGRAVIA series. Episode 1 — Dancing into battle Episode 2 — A chance encounter Episode 3 — Family Ties It is a novel (excuse the pun) idea to construct the book as a serialization with new episodes appearing weekly. There are 11 episodes or chapters in all. I have enjoyed the series so far - it is a quiet, detailed story revolving around a secret. The story is set in 1840s England against a backdrop of British high society and manners. The characters, the settings, the decor, the clothing, the everyday mannerisms, the conversations, the meals, the architecture, class structure - all come alive. It is what Julian Fellowes does best - setting the tone/the atmosphere of the period. The story is almost secondary to the sense of being involved in the setting. I liked reading about the Duchess of Richmond’s ball held on the eve of the Battle of Waterloo in 1815 - in Episode 1. It is here that the secret has its beginnings. I would definitely recommend this serialization.
