Publisher's Summary

England, 1912, is a place of rigid rules. A chance meeting between scullery maid Lizzy Parker and heiress Evie Creswell is about to break them all....

Their meeting leads to more than an enduring friendship and a new job for Lizzy - it draws her into a world of privilege and intrigue and delivers her into the loving arms of a killer.

Meeting the handsome but mysterious Jack Carlisle, Lizzy begins to fall for him despite rumours he had been involved in the death of Evie's father. As she becomes further embroiled in the dangerous life that Carlisle lives, she must decide if he can be trusted with the life of a close friend and, ultimately, if he is worth the risk to her own.

Perfect for fans of Nadine Dorries, Dilly Court and Annie Murray. The story continues in The Roses of Flanders Field, out now!

Short-listed for RNA Best Historical Novel 2013.

    "A great start to trilogy"

    I loved this book the first time I read it and the audio version does not disappoint. Roll on the next 2 in audio and this author's other books too. A good story with accurate historical detail, lots of suspense and characters to love. The narrator manages the accents beautifully and made the people live and breathe so convincingly I could almost see their faces.

    Story
    "Mystery and Intrigue"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I found it difficult to stop listening because at the end of each chapter there was that moment when you really just wanted to find out what was going to happen next!


    What did you like best about this story?

    mustn't give the story away but there was so many ups and downs and twists and turns.


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    At one point I thought the story line was going down the route of so many stories I've read before and I started to get disappointed but thankfully it turned out differently.


    Any additional comments?

    Looking forward to the next book

    "a great listen"

    this book starts with the usual upstairs downstairs life, but soon enters into tangle of threats, lies and love triangles. I really enjoyed listening to it
