When her husband died, it was clear to Verity that she would have to sell Knighton, the beautiful old house where her daughter, Hester, had grown up and where her mother before her had come as a young bride. But the move proved to be a beginning rather than an ending: it revealed a host of secrets which the three women had been harbouring. Successful, single and independent, Hester was determined to put to rest the legacies that she had inherited.
