A country house. A long, hot summer. A story of love. When a mysterious countess arrives late in life to live in a large house on the outskirts of a beautiful Hampshire village, the local tongues start wagging. No one is more intrigued than Cecily Chadwick, idling away the long, hot summer of 1911 with nothing much to do.
Cecily is deeply fascinated by the exotic elderly lady, and as she gets to know her, is riveted by the tales of her life on the continent. And when she meets Jack, the Countess's grandson, she realises that there is much more to both of them than meets the eye and that there are long hidden secrets still to be revealed...
