Ellie has recurring nightmares, always waking to a life devoid of love, but still she dreams. Living in the old hall with her Aunt Gertrude and cousins Cybil and Jane, the scandal of her mother’s elopement with a Frenchman cast a long shadow over her. Such taints are difficult to cast off, until Mr William Cookson arrives to shine new light onto her past and show her the way to an exciting future.
