From the bestselling author of Miss Appleby’s Academy and Far From My Father’s House comes a family saga perfect for fans of Nadine Dorries, Anna Jacobs and Dilly Court.
When Rosalind West leaves her native Durham for a job in London with the Doxbridge Motor Company she is determined to escape her background and build a new life. London is excitingly different and tantalisingly glamorous – especially when she meets the handsome and aristocratic Freddie Harrington, a rally driver, and the son of a once-wealthy Northumberland landowner. Against her friends’ better judgement Freddie and Rosalind begin a relationship. But Freddie’s family have plans for him which do not include marrying a Durham miner’s daughter. Turning to a close companion for consolation, Rosalind suddenly finds herself torn between two men, both of strong passions, and fierce ambition.
