    1913: In a sprawling manor on the outskirts of London, three young women seek to fulfill their destinies and desires amidst the unspoken rules of society and the distant rumblings of war.... Sir Philip Buxton raised three girls into beautiful and capable young women in a bohemian household that defied Edwardian tradition.

    As the icy chill of winter, 1914, settles on the magnificent country estate of Summerset Abbey, three young women seek comfort and warmth in the smiles of friends, the fire in their hearts, and the promise of spring… Victoria Buxton - With her delicate constitution but strong, unflappable spirit, Victoria has never followed societal conventions, the rules of fashion, or the pursuit of a husband. Instead, she finds herself drawn into the controversial - and dangerous - fight for women’s suffrage.

    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. Rowena Buxton takes a dangerous mission transporting planes, and find herself tempted. Victoria Buxton lives on her own in London as a lady bachelor. And Prudence Tate crosses a line when her new husband elists in the war effort.

    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 ..Show More »
