Two sisters, Phyllis and Jessica, along with their mother’s godson Oscar inhabit a story set in England’s New Forest and the family’s Ellinghurst Castle, in the years surrounding the Great War. Changing times and family secrets with unseen consequences shadow the characters.

Clare Clark deftly weaves a fictional family story with real historical characters and events that made this much more than a Downton Abbey-like tale. I would agree much more to comparisons with writers like Pat Barker later trilogy of ‘Life Class,’ ‘Toby’s Room,’ and ‘Noonday’ or even Ian McEwan’s ‘Atonement.’ Excellent writing, enjoyable reading.

A 'Big House' book set in post WWI England where a young boy is overawed by the daughters of the wealthy family who own Ellinghurst. It's well researched but a little bit Mills-and-Boon-sy with more than a whiff of Downton Abbey. Nonetheless, a comfortable and enjoyable read.
