A woman of considerable spirit, Erica is rather reluctant to move into Leicester Gardens. There she is surprised by what she finds: ambitions and rivalries ruling the dining room, and yet there are possibilities for new friendships too. One of these is with the elegant Maria. Though her marriage survived both a war and an affair, Maria is haunted still by her memories of that dramatic time. Some of these she will recount, and others she keeps secret. Erica's young student Margaret, herself on a personal quest, travels to Europe in search of some answers of her own. Finally, it is Margaret's journey which brings about a sort of truce between the past and the present, and between warring generations of families. And at Leicester Gardens, Erica discovers that old dogs can certainly learn new tricks...
Amy Witting, acclaimed author of I for Isobel and A Change in the Lighting, has created a compassionate, witty novel exploring the wars of the heart.
