Two entwined families: the aristocratic Inghams and the Swanns who serve them. One stately home: Cavendon Hall, a grand imposing house nestled in the beautiful Yorkshire Dales. Two best friends: DeLacy Ingham, daughter of the earl, and Ceci Swann, daughter of the valet. Inseparable from childhood, but with two very different destinies. But the year is 1913, and soon life as the two families of Cavendon Hall know it - Royal Ascot, supper dances, grouse season feasts - is about to change irrevocably.
