Summary

The FitzDeanes are wealthy. They have Ballyford Castle in Ireland and a growing shipping business in Liverpool, but a previous generation made a terrible mistake and now there are whispers that the family is cursed, unable to produce a living heir.

When young Ruby Flynn arrives to work at Ballyford, rumours start swirling around this beautiful girl with a mysterious past. Who is she really? And what will her arrival mean for this powerful family divided by tragedy?

brilliant book just wish it had been longer

Excellent narration. Great story reminds me of Downton Abbey. I just wish the story was longer and the author went into each of the characters lives more. Pity as there is so much scope to make the book longer.

What A Lovely Story

Nadine Dorries is very quickly becoming one of my favourite Authors. This story is beautifully written and would definitely appeal to all Downton Abbey enthusiasts. I was drawn in by this book and felt and loved each of the characters, except Rory Doyle!!
Beautifully narrated by Noreen Leighton. I would most certainly recommend this story, hence the five stars.
