Interesting characters during an interesting time in history. Set during the roaring 20’s in England. The historical fiction is set around Swan and the Inghams families. The families come from different classes. The Ingham’s are aristocratic with the head Charles Ingham with his one son Miles and four daughters known as the D’s. Each daughter with their first name starting with a letter D. Each daughter is confident, determined, and close to their father.
The Swan family have served the Ingham’s for many years and their daughter Ceceily a successful business owner. Ceceily and Miles have a past that wounded Ceceily and drove her to become the successful woman that she now is. They are now brought back together and have reconciled their differences.
The prose is heavy on the relationships. With the backdrop on how aristocratic families such as the Ingham’s struggle to survive the cost of maintaining their assets. It is a soap opera narration of love, betrayal, and trust.
I started with the 2nd book and look forward to reading the first installment and whatever continues.
A Special Thank You to St. Martin’s Press and Netgalley for the ARC and the opportunity to post an honest review.
