Set in Edwardian England this story tells of the Inghams, an aristocratic family, and the Swanns who are their honourable servants. Living in Cavendon Hall, a large manor in Yorkshire with the threat of World War One hanging over them, Charles, the sixth Earl of Mowbray and his wife Felicity are bringing up their six children, two sons and four daughters.Going back over a hundred years the Swanns have worked for the Inghams, living by their side and forever offering nothing less than loyalty and deep friendship.
This novel is about these two families and their entwined lives and how a tragedy affects them all.
An engaging read with some interesting and colourful characters, though too many to take in at once, thankfully the author has a list at the beginning of the book,much needed!
