A fascinating account of one family's attitudes, morals and affairs from the 1920s onwards. Detailed descriptions of the ceremonies and dress codes are testimony to the author's research.
I loved how the title of the book is cleverly woven into the storyline.
Highly recommended for readers who enjoy family sagas.

Absolutely great read, much enjoyed! Full of exciting drama from start to finish...couldn’t put it down.
This book is vividly descriptive, I really enjoyed being transported back in time to the roaring 1920s, a period I have always liked. The people and places got my interest immediately, and how their actions, albeit unintentional, brought the family to its knees. The ending is unexpected and quite shocking considering this was in the 1920s. I would definitely recommend this book. I couldn’t put it down!

I was attracted to the book by the quality of the cover, I know they say not to judge a book by its cover but it is truly reflected in the unfolding narrative. A saga of a generation whose values and way of life have sadly long gone. I admired the way they all stood together through thick and thin and were always there for another no matter what. I found the book almost impossible to put down. A story of strong minded women who stood united with their family to the bitter end.

An excellent and fascinating story which makes compelling reading with many twists and turns in family life. The author has captured the readers interest very successfully. I would strongly recommend this book as a must read.
An incredible story of the trials and tribulations of a family set in the 1920s. The book is packed with all kinds of happenings and demonstrates the closeness of families, particularly in that era. There were plenty of unexpected developments and it was definitely a page turner.
A real page turner, can’t wait to find out more and read the end of the book!!! Love it so far!!!
This book was given to me as a gift. Fascinating story, with the family saga taking many twists and turns, showing that one wrong move in life can have far reaching affects. A great summer read!
