SUMMARY
When French vineyard owner and man of the house Charles Beaufort is thrown in prison for the smuggling of contraband from France to England, he leaves his family-and their vineyard-with little hope of survival. Sophie, his English-born wife, is resourceful, however, and she arranges for a close friend of the family to help her and the two Beaufort daughters work the land. Soon, Sophie decides it would be good for her eldest daughter, Yvette, to broaden her horizons and see other parts of Europe. She sends Yvette to a manor in Buckinghamshire, England, far from the familiar French culture she knows and loves. She is to play companion to the lady of the house, Mrs. Constance Devereux. Life in England is not what Yvette's mother would have hoped, as the young woman is soon encircled by deceit, frustration, and even a terrifying death threat. Yvette is a hesitant player in the intrigues of Devereux Manor. She must find a way back to her home, but will the house and its mystery let her leave?
