The story centres on two women, Lillian and her granddaughter Maggie, and alternates between two summers that are decades apart. Lillian is only twenty-six but already feels like an old woman. She is married to a wealthy widower, Charles Oberon, but her marriage has not turned out like she thought it would. Instead of feeling loved and treasured, she feels like she is just another beautiful possession among the many that Charles has gathered with the walls of Cloudesley, their manor house.
But she is a devoted step-mother to Albie and has promised him she will stay despite Charles moods, and then there is the care that Charles pays for her sister Helena, who was injured during the war. Lillian accepts this is now her life, and there is no way out of it.
