England, 1912, is a place of rigid rules. A chance meeting between scullery maid Lizzy Parker and heiress Evie Creswell is about to break them all....
Their meeting leads to more than an enduring friendship and a new job for Lizzy - it draws her into a world of privilege and intrigue and delivers her into the loving arms of a killer.
Meeting the handsome but mysterious Jack Carlisle, Lizzy begins to fall for him despite rumours he had been involved in the death of Evie's father. As she becomes further embroiled in the dangerous life that Carlisle lives, she must decide if he can be trusted with the life of a close friend and, ultimately, if he is worth the risk to her own.
Perfect for fans of Nadine Dorries, Dilly Court and Annie Murray. The story continues in The Roses of Flanders Field, out now!
Short-listed for RNA Best Historical Novel 2013.
"This is the kind of novel that makes you look forward to bedtime so you can read some more - an epic true romance story." (Historical Novel Society)

Mystery and Intrigue
I found it difficult to stop listening because at the end of each chapter there was that moment when you really just wanted to find out what was going to happen next!
mustn't give the story away but there was so many ups and downs and twists and turns.
At one point I thought the story line was going down the route of so many stories I've read before and I started to get disappointed but thankfully it turned out differently.
Looking forward to the next book
