Rowena and Victoria, daughters to the third son of the Earl of Summerset, have always treated their housekeeper's daughter, Prudence, like a sister. But when their father dies and they move in with their uncle's family in a much stricter household, Prudence is relegated to the downstairs maids' quarters, much to the girls' shock and dismay. The impending war offers each girl hope for a more modern future, but the ever-present specter of class expectations makes it difficult for Prudence to maintain a foot in both worlds.
Vividly evoking both time and place and filled with authentic dialogue and richly detailed atmosphere, Summerset Abbey is a charming and timeless historical debut.
