London 1914

Even before the outbreak of war, 1914 has not been a good year for Sylvia Shaw.

Her comfortable family life has gone: prosperity lost in the court case that drained the life from her father and saw the end of her engagement to Hugh Osborne.

And now her brothers are off to war.

The cause for which she had worked as a Suffragist is gone too.

The campaign for Votes for Women has been laid aside for the duration of the war, but not before it exacted a terrible toll on her.

Now she must struggle to find work and rebuild some kind of life.

If it's work that helps the war effort, then so much the better.

But first she needs a decent place to live, and there are pitfalls for a vulnerable single woman in London, particularly in the Bohemian world of artist Octavius Jameson.

Max Bryson, the lawyer who represented her family in the court case before the war, has mixed feelings at first about working with Lloyd George for the war effort, but soon decides that this is the right man to shake up Asquith's government, perhaps even the right man to lead the country in its hour of need.

Max has also known tragedy, and is still striving to solve tangled family relationships of his own, but he has never forgotten Sylvia.

How can a woman disappear so suddenly and so completely?

Will his search for her have to be put on one side for the duration?

And even if he finds her, can two so very different people ever find a common cause in the turmoil of war?
