    May 1914. Nestled in Sussex, the Summerhayes mansion seems the perfect country idyll. But a long-running feud between the Summers and their neighbour, Lady Summer's brother, threatens the calm. And with tensions in Europe deepening, it seems that Summerhayes' peaceful days are numbered. For Elizabeth Summer, the lazy quiet of her home has become stifling. A chance meeting with Aiden Kellaway, an architect's assistant, offers the promise of escape.

    Summer 1944: Bombed out by the Blitz, Bethany Merston takes up a post as companion to elderly Alice Summer, last remaining inhabitant of the dilapidated and crumbling Summerhayes estate. Now a shadow of its former glory, most of the rooms have been shut up, the garden is overgrown and the whole place feels as unwelcoming as the family themselves. Struggling with the realities of war, Alice is plagued by anonymous letters and haunting visions of her old household.
