This book features a woman's struggle to face her tragic past and regain happiness. Clare is devastated after her fiance was killed in the First World War. She inherits Merle Place, a large house which was a military hospital during the war, which is now in need of expensive renovation. Completely out of her depth, Clare tries to sell the house, hampered by her cousin Donald who has invited himself to stay indefinitely. Clare's only enjoyment is writing a weekly serial for "The Ladies Journal", so her hopes rise when she is asked to write a novel. She meets editor Steven Flint, who is very encouraging but her attempts to write are thwarted by a series of problems. And while Steven is a friendly shoulder to cry on, could her feelings for him cause problems?

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Oldfield's particular forte is historical fiction set during the 1890s and 1900s... this novel nicely showcases her ability to create characters". Booklist on Full Circle "Oldfield's historical novel provides an intriguing look at the culture of indulged young Brits in the heyday of the British Empire" Booklist on Summer Lightning "The author's keen observation and deft use of language make for intriguing glimpses into the many vagaries of human nature, from jealousy to fear, passion, betrayal, joy, courage, and grief" Booklist on Turning Leaves"
