BTB at her superb best. A sweeping, multi-generational saga set on the eve of WW1, in the vein of A Woman of Substance
Two entwined families: the aristocratic Inghams and the Swanns who serve them
One stately home: Cavendon Hall, a grand imposing house nestled in the beautiful Yorkshire Dales
A society beauty: Lady Daphne Ingham is the most beautiful of the Earl’s daugthers. Being presented at Court and then a glittering marriage is her destiny.
But in the summer of 1913, a devastating event changes her future forever, and puts the House of Ingham at risk. Life as the families of Cavendon Hall know it – Royal Ascot, supper dances, grouse season feasts – is about to alter beyond recognition as the storm clouds of war gather.
