‘If you’ve been suffering withdrawal symptoms from Downton, this is for you’ Daily Mail
A stately home. The roaring twenties. And four spirited girls who must forge a new future for themselves.
On a summer weekend in 1926 the Ingham family gathers at the great house in Yorkshire that has been their family home for centuries. With them are the Swanns who have served them for generations – and know all their secrets.
The estate is under threat: the aftermath of the Great War has left it facing ruin. Four young women from both sides of the house must shape its future – Daphne, fighting to modernise her ancestral home; Cecily Swann, flying high as a fashion designer in London; Deidre, the career girl, and Dulcie, the outspoken debutante. As the roaring twenties burn towards the Great Depression, nothing will ever be the same again…
