Publisher's Summary

The laughter of summer lawn parties fades for the men and women of Summerset Abbey, as the rumble of cannon-fire sweeps across Europe. In a changing world, they soon find that only one thing is certain: none of them will ever be the same.
Female pilot Rowena Buxton's upcoming wedding to Sebastian Billingsly is the talk of society. Rowena loves her kind, handsome fiancé, but memories of a dangerously passionate affair with a dashing flier still stir her heart..... Accepting a daring mission transporting British planes, she encounters the man whose touch sent her reeling - and whose return into her life may have disastrous consequences for her and Sebastian's future.
The defiant suffragette Victoria Buxton raises eyebrows once again by living on her own in London as a lady bachelor. Kit Kittredge is the one man who understands and adores Victoria's fiery spirit - but she rebuffs her best friend's offer of marriage time and again, choosing to join the war effort as a volunteer nurse. And on the battlefields of France, she will learn the true meaning of love and sacrifice.
After a stinging betrayal at Summerset Abbey, Prudence Tate has found love and contentment in working-class Camden Town as Mrs. Andrew Wilkes. But when Andrew enlists, everything that Pru cherishes is at risk - and she crosses a line attempting to protect him. Has she irreparably damaged their loving bond of trust?

War changes everything

The story continues with the Buxton sisters during the early years of WWI. Although this one at least had closure (unlike books 1&2) it still lacked a certain spark. The characters were just so one dimensional and the author never really went deep enough into what made them tick. I suppose I kept up with the series just hoping I would get some answers as to why the sisters made certain decisions in their lives. Unfortunately these answers never came.

I did enjoy the evolution of how the war brought change to women’s rights and equalities; but I could have read that in a text book.

It’s a shame because this series could have been epic, but instead turned out to be a cheap rip-off.
