The year is 1949 and the Second World War has exacted a terrible price on Britain. The great Yorkshire estate of Cavendon Hall is facing bankruptcy. Its two families, the aristocratic Inghams and their retainers the Swanns, are at odds for the first time in living memory over the course that must be taken to save it.

In London, a city still scarred by bombsites, the Earl’s niece, Alicia Stanton, is making her mark in the glamorous film world. Alongside her, Victoria Brown, the Swanns’ young wartime evacuee, is starting out as a fashion photographer. The New Look is in, Princess Elizabeth’s wedding has raised morale and the capital is filled with a new energy. Yet, for both of the girls, Cavendon, the place where they grew up, will always be truly home.

But it is Cavendon that threatens them all, young and old, when its secrets, long buried in the past, rise to the surface. Can the Inghams and the Swanns unite to save the family name and the one thing they all hold dear – their future?
