Astra Davies lives a life of leisure on her family's grounds - until both her parents die on a trip and she is left to sort what remains. Astra has to deal not only with unexpected financial issues but also with the discovery of a living family mystery. Astra has to figure out a way to get her new life in order or become homeless and unwelcome in her circle of friends.

I found the story to be a little tiresome and vapid. The first half of the story seemed to go painfully slow and I felt I had to push through in order to finish. The author seems to have a decent knowledge of England around the time of the Great Depression. While the main character faces more than her share of hardships, the surrounding characters worry about their partying and high-end lifestyles. While this was not the type of story I normally enjoyed if you like light stories with a happy ending you will enjoy this book.
