With the narrative of harry magestidade found throughout the property Wharton Park and all the grandeur of the Crawford family, in a season that was excencial status.
The Second World War changes everything for everyone Harry went to war with Julia’s grandfatherBill, ending in the same awful conditions at Changhi. Harry goes there and live a romance with Lidia, a sweet girl who’s living in thailand. In present an old diary is discovered amongst the houses sale of contents and Julia pays a visit to her grandmother Elsie to discover the history of the house.
The book is also a life lesson that shows us the willpower of two youths who despite different times and the degree of kinship pass through the same doubts, loves and tragedies in different ways … And though Harry never gets to know Julia, their lives are more intertwined than themselves imagine, and will once again Wharton Park that will house a new story with a new beginning. I was very surprised by secrets that were revealed in the book , but always remember
