Publisher's Summary

A captivating family drama about sisters and long-held secrets spanning from the 1930s to the present day, perfect for fans of Downton Abbey.

Chalfont Hall, Dorset, 1936, and as the dressmaker puts the last pins in her dress, 13-year-old Kit is wondering why she has to go through the charade of seeing her sister, Lily, presented at Court. With her waves of auburn hair and her piercing green eyes, Kit knows that her sister's place on the social scene is guaranteed regardless of her dress, and as the door to a life of parties and eligible young men opens for Lily, Kit must make do with tiptoeing around the gallery of Chalfont, eavesdropping on the conversations of the grown-ups.

But the arrival one evening of a distinctly German visitor soon sets in motion a chain of events that none of the family could have anticipated. Years later the aftershock of events will be felt by a new generation....

    "A fabulous book!"

    This book has been one of my favourite audio books & I've listened to well over 100.

    The narrator plays each part so beautifully, female & male.

    The story touched all of my emotions.

    I'm so sad that's it's finished. I've done virtually nothing for 4 days as I just wanted to listen & take it all in. I'm going to treat myself to 3 credits right now, at 03.23am & get some more books by this author. Tremendously relieved she's written more books :)
