A family saga that takes the reader right from the 1950s to the end of the twentieth century, and set between the Hamptons summer homes of New York's elite and the English countryside familiar to any fan of British period drama, it's a tale of the power and greed of the mega-rich, as the great banking business upon which the family's fortunes are won and lost comes to the brink of ruin. Intense relationships, both old and new, are tested to the utmost in this grand and unputdownable summer read.
