Inhaltsangabe: It's 1914, and World War One is about to change life at Swallowcliffe Hall for ever. Grace, Polly's daughter and a reluctant kitchenmaid, sees new opportunities opening up for her as most of the young male servants leave to fight in France and trainloads of wounded soldiers begin to arrive at the Hall to convalesce. War brings tragedy in its wake and Grace worries desperately about her beloved brother Tom, away at the Front. Nobody is safe, not even Lord and Lady Vye, making their way back from America aboard the ill-fated liner Lusitania. And then Grace finds herself falling in love – with the wrong person. Can she ever escape from the servants' hall, or will the old order stay as strong as ever? NOTE: This story was first published under the title, 'Standing in the Shadows'.
About the Author: Jennie Walters has had over twenty books published for children and teens, including the popular Party Girls series. She was partly inspired to write the ‘Swallowcliffe Hall’ stories by visits to beautiful old English country houses, including Kingston Lacey in Dorset, Belton House in Lincolnshire and Castle Howard in Yorkshire. When younger, she spent two years in a cliff-top boarding school converted from a Victorian mansion with wood-panelled rooms, a huge marble staircase and one of the largest collections of stuffed birds in England. Finding a silver housekeeper’s châtelaine while clearing out her father-in-law’s flat whetted her interest in Victorian servants and their masters and mistresses, and prompted her to create a fictional country house of her own. Jennie lives in London with her husband and a dog, and has two grown-up sons. For a fascinating insight into the world of English country houses and the families and servants who live in them, visit Jennie’s website, packed with original photographs, historical information, extracts from servants’ letters, and much more! www.jenniewalters.com
