May 1914. Nestled in Sussex, the Summerhayes mansion seems the perfect country idyll. But a long-running feud between the Summers and their neighbour, Lady Summer's brother, threatens the calm. And with tensions in Europe deepening, it seems that Summerhayes' peaceful days are numbered. For Elizabeth Summer, the lazy quiet of her home has become stifling.
A chance meeting with Aiden Kellaway, an architect's assistant, offers the promise of escape. But to secure her family's future, Elizabeth must marry well. A man of trade - however alluring - will fall far from her father's uncompromising standards.
As the sweltering heat of 1914 builds to a storm, Elizabeth must face a choice between family loyalty...and an uncertain future with the man she loves. One thing is certain: this summer will change everything.
