Product description

The Darlingtons belong to the elite class of British society, and possess one of its oldest and greatest estates. But as well as wealth and class, they also have secrets. Eighteen-year-old Maggie and her mother have just returned from a year abroad, along with Lady Darlington’s newborn baby. Also with them is Therese, their new French tutor, and two orphaned teenage twins, Teddy and Jessica, who have just lost their father aboard the Titanic. It’s a crowded house, rife with tension and gossip. The orphans long for home, while Maggie is growing into her own person. Meanwhile, her parents are secretly hoping to marry her to Teddy. But when scandalous satires start popping up in the newspapers, apparently based upon events at Wentworth Hall, the Darlingtons decide to put their affairs in order. The culprit must be found. But where to start – upstairs or downstairs?

A brilliantly opulent and scandal-filled tale for anyone who loves The Luxe or British period drama.
