In the brief golden years of King Edward VII's reign, Rosie McCosh and her three sisters are growing up in an idyllic, eccentric household in the countryside, with their "pals" the Pitts boys on one side of the fence and the Pendennis boys on the other. But their days of childhood innocence and adventure are destined to be followed by the apocalypse of the First World War that will overwhelm them as they come to adulthood.
For Rosie, the path ahead will be full of challenges. Torn between her love for two young men - one an infantry soldier and one a flying ace - she has to navigate her way through extraordinary times. Can she and her sisters build new lives out of both the egalitarian opportunities and devastations that follow the war?
This magnificent novel follows an unforgettable cast of characters as they strike out for what happiness can be salvaged from the ruins of the old world.
