Publisher's Summary

Rose Beechworth is mistress of a charming country house - her own, left to her by her wealthy father. In the summer of 1914, Alice Weatherly turns Rose's world upside down. The young heiress longs to kiss Captain Charlie Summers goodbye and so she takes Rose to Liverpool's Lime Street station and into the heart of Charlie's brother Harry. Harry inherits the ramshackle Summer Place, and is only too glad when it becomes a hospital for wounded soldiers. As the war takes its terrible toll and Charlie disappears into fog of battle, Alice - the spoilt runaway heiress - becomes a heroine, while Rose finds herself running two great houses. It seems impossible that any of them can ever find happiness again…
Once again, Audrey Howard has combined her profound knowledge of life in Lancashire in days gone by with a heart-breaking story of love lost and won.
