Evan, Tessa, Linnet, and India: four remarkable women. Three generations of Hartes. One indomitable family whose loyalty binds them together and whose enemies want to tear them apart.
India Standish, the traditionalist in the family, falls for a famous British artist from a working-class background. Evan Hughes, Emma's American great-granddaughter, is trying to integrate into the Harte family. She is caught between her estranged parents, her new family, and a new love. Tessa Longden, Evan's cousin, is battling for custody of her daughter, Adele. When Adele suddenly goes missing, Tessa is forced to seek help from her half-sister, Linnet, a woman who has been her rival all their lives. Linnet is the most brilliant businesswoman of the four great-granddaughters, her glittering future at the helm of the vast Harte empire means many sacrifices, perhaps even the loss of her sister's fragile trust.
As conflict and danger swirl around the Harte women, someone is pulling the strings to make sure none of them find happiness. Who among them will rise to the challenges as only a true Harte can do?
