Product description

One house, two worlds, dark secrets…

The year is 1910. For the past decade, the Averley family have lived a life of luxury in India. Now they return to Lord Averley’s ancestral estate: the sprawling, majestically beautiful Somerton Court. As the staff hastily prepare for the family’s arrival, they receive shocking news: Lord Averley is bringing back a fiancee with three children of her own. What’s more, rumours whisper of a terrible scandal around his resignation as Lieutenant Governor of Bengal. Soon the peace of the English country house is shattered by tensions both upstairs and downstairs. Lady Ada must choose between her honour and her heart. Sebastian must fend off ruinous threats from a former servant and lover. And gentle housemaid Rose finds herself caught in a scandal so vast it could bring down Somerton forever…

Brimming with schemes, scandals and sauciness, this is a a thrilling period drama for fans of Downton Abbey.
