"England, 1932: Grace Hamblin is growing up on the beautiful estate of the Marquiss and Marchioness of Penselwood. The beekeeper's daughter, she knows her place and her future--that is until her father dies and leaves her alone. Her childhood friend Freddie has recently become her lover, and she is thankful when they are able to marry and take over her father's duties. But there is another man who she just can't shake from her thoughts . . . Massachusetts, 1973: Grace's daughter Trixie Valentine is in love with an unsuitable boy. Jasper Duncliffe is wild and romantic, and in a band that might be going somewhere. But when his brother dies and he is called home to England, Jasper promises to come back for Trixie one day, if only she will wait for him. Thinking Trixie is surely abandoned, Grace tries to reach out to her daughter, but Trixie brushes off her mother's advice and comfort, sure Jasper's love for her was real. There must be something Jasper isn't telling her . . . Both mother and daughter are searching for love and happiness, unaware of the secrets that bind them. To find what they are longing for they must confront the secrets of the past, and unravel the lies told long ago"--Provided by publisher.

Santa Montefiori has done it again. Being a Beekeeper's daughter of that generation, I had to read this title. Delightful. Well researched. Charming. She knows her people.
