Publisher's Summary

1914: Lady Beauford has three boys and certainly doesn't want another child. But her husband Aubrey has always dreamed of a daughter. In contrast Harold and Copper Varney are expecting their first child and are over the moon about it.

Their children Victoria and Leila meet when Lady Beauford sends Victoria to the village school out of spite. The Varneys adore their only child Leila, though they are surprised she does not excel academically as her father did. Though Harold is an impoverished teacher, he was a talented Oxford scholar.

Despite the differences in their backgrounds, the two girls share a special friendship; but before long both families start to fear something is wrong...
