As England emerges from the post-war depression, the country is changing, and the birth-pangs of a new age bring it to the brink of revolution. Violent times breed violent acts. Sophie’s life is shattered by a hideous crime. Morland Place falls into chaos as Heloise removes her hand from the reins. Benedict is forced to leave home and makes a life among the railway pioneers, leaving Nicholas free to indulge the dark side of his nature. And amongst them all stalks the deadly invisible threat of cholera.
