Her daughter, Carina, is immensely high-powered with her own fast-paced business in London. She has very little time for her 17-year-old daughter, Anastasia, away at boarding school, and even less time for her aging mother. In many ways, the three of them barely know each other. Then Gracie stumbles upon an advertisement for a weeklong cookery course in the heart of the Tuscan countryside. She cannot resist and ploughs her life savings into the trip. Carina and Anastasia accompany her. They have no idea why Gracie has been drawn to this venture. They have no sense of her past; she has never spoken about it. They have no idea that Gracie is harbouring the secret of an extraordinary life that preceded them.

Note: Standard print edition originally published: London: Simon & Schuster, 2015 Kitty Deverill was born on the ninth day of the ninth month of 1900. The youngest daughter of an aristocratic Anglo-Irish dynasty living in the south-west of Ireland, her life will unfold as history plays out in her home country. Though young, her future is already determined: marriage to an English lord, quiet subservience, and a life away from home. But Kitty has ideas of her own and chooses her friends according to their personality not their position, and when the ruggedly handsome son of the local vet catches her eye, her future starts to feel less like a privilege and more like a prison. With her red hair she is passionate and feisty, her heart pure and mind set. But as war comes and the family's position in Ireland becomes less certain, will she follow her head or her heart?
