A terrible war.
Billy’s circle of relatives is inextricably linked with the Fitzherberts, the aristocratic owners of the coal mine where he works. And when Maud Fitzherbert falls in love with Walter von Ulrich, a spy on the German embassy in London, their destiny also becomes entangled with that of Gus Dewar, an ambitious young aide to Woodrow Wilson, and two orphaned Russian brothers, the Peshkovs, whose plan to emigrate to The usa falls foul of conscription, revolution and imminent war.

A revolution with a view to change the whole lot.
When Russia convulses in bloody revolution and the Great War unfolds, the five families’ futures are entwined eternally, love bringing them closer at the same time as conflict takes them further apart. What seeds will likely be sown for further tragedy in the twentieth century and what role will each and every play in what is to come?
