Essential reading for fans of E.M. Forster, Elizabeth Jane Howard and Mary Stewart.

The third in the classic family saga about the Eliots of Damerosehay.

Despite the success and acclaim he has found as an actor, David Eliot struggles with the demands of his career. His brittle conversation and seeming arrogance earn him the dislike of his new secretary, Sebastian Weber.

But when Sebastian visits David’s family home, he discovers a different side to his employer. As Damerosehay and its inhabitants weave their magic, Sebastian slowly begins to lay his own demons to rest.
