Unable to attract suitably aristocratic suitors in London, a group of beautiful, wealthy and extremely ambitious English heiresses decide to try their luck in Paris instead. Although they initially take the city of light by storm, they soon discover that the glittering facade of social success hides a multitude of sins and iniquities while their own dark secrets and an implacable enemy could well destroy everything that they have worked so hard to achieve.
Based on The Buccaneers by Edith Wharton, Before the Storm is a tale of passion, betrayal, illicit love and friendship set against the backdrop of the opulent and often treacherous worlds of Georgian London, Marie Antoinette's Versailles and the bloodshed and terror of Revolutionary Paris.
