It was dark when Nell Ayrton got to Carlisle.
There had been a raid in the Midlands and the station was blacked-out and in chaos.
Nell ran wildly from one side of the enormous station to the other, despair clutching at her heart.
How on earth was she to find an unknown woman in the milling crowds? And would she have Roger’s baby safely tucked away with her?
Nell is just one of the Aryton’s in trouble as the Second World War looms.
Amberwell, an estate on the west coast of Scotland, has been in the Ayrton family for several generations... descending from father to son in an unbroken line.
By family tradition, each new owner was to add to the amenities of the place and in this way Amberwell grew larger and more beautiful as the years went by, endowed with gardens and terraces and orchards.
The five young Ayrtons who grew up at Amberwell have now ventured out into the world.
They may have been brought up by cool, distant parents, but the bonds between these children are strong.
Now they must fight to hold on to what they see dear as the threat of war emerges.
Will the war drastically alter their destinies?
What will become of the Amberwell children, their complex relationships, and the place they call home ...?
