by Rosie Meddon
Publication Date: 7 May 2018
A story of family, secrets and love set in the beautiful Devonshire countryside at Woodicombe House.
Kate Bratton dreams of more. It’s 1914, and her life is mapped out ahead of her: continue working as a maid in the beautiful Woodicombe House, settle down with Luke, the gardener and, of course, start a family.
Desperate to run away in search of adventure, Kate’s plans are curtailed by the arrival of the Russell family at Woodicombe House. Tasked with becoming a ladies-maid for their daughter, Naomi, Kate gets a glimpse of the other side of life. Little does she know that all families have secrets, no matter their standing.
Will Kate return to the safety of her life before the Russell’s arrival? Or will the handsome Ned Russell turn her head?
