Sarah is devastated when her lover Dominic betrays her, and to help her recovery she takes a job writing the history of an old manor house, once the home of her father's ancestors, now owned by an American University. Here she becomes immersed in the poignant story of her family, and in particular of Robert, Lord Harlaston, who may have been her grandfather. Was he the callous seducer of an innocent village maiden, or was there some deeper, more passionate mystery in the story of Robert and Charity, Sarah's grandmother, who was brought up in the shadow of Harlaston Manor? From present-day London to the misty Lincolnshire fens, from the battles of the Boer War to the rigid hierarchies of a small village in Edwardian times, this sweeping novel tells a breathtaking story of a family and its mysteries.

Sarah Reese on
 
A wonderful blend of history and romance, this charming novel will be enjoyed by anyone who loves a good mystery-slash-love story. Recovering from a disastrous break-up, Sarah retreats to the quiet of Harlaston Hall, where she intends to write a book about its former owners. Sarah, however, may well have taken on more than she bargained for, as the mansion's complicated past stretches into her own present, and tangled in it is a mystery which will culminate in the greatest discovery of all...
