The great house of Cavendon Hall has a new generation of children playing in its halls and gardens. After the ravages of the Great War and the Great Depression, the future looks assured for the first time in a decade. But over Europe the storm clouds of war are gathering. And it must be the estate's younger generation who step forward to play their part and fight for their country, young men and women from both above and below stairs. Tracing the families of the house from Yorkshire to pre-war Berlin, from Dunkirk and its great armada of little ships to the Battle of Britain and the Blitz, this gripping historical family saga weaves together the personal and political for the daughters of the Earl - and for their children, who must join the front line.
