London, 1955: Grace Monroe has been brought up in Oxford, now married she is in the heart of London's social circles. She does not like the role she must play, and does not like her husband, even tho she won't admit that to herself. One evening she receives a letter from France,
telling her she has received an ineritance from Eva d'Orsey. The problem is that she does not know who this woman is, or why she would inherit her estate.
The book unravels like an onion, layer by layer, and changes many lives, and answers questions unanswered for years.
I guess I just love the idea of a magical inheritance out of the blue, and how it can change your life unexpectedly in so many ways.
