​​The summer of 1914.

The Sheridan brothers pursue the pastimes of the rich and talented in the idyllic village of Tarrant Royal, unaware of the coming war that will test their courage and family loyalty to the limit.

Roland, an aspiring surgeon, believes his duty lies in remaining as a squire of his Dorset village. But charges of cowardice force him into a conflict his conscience cannot condone.

Rex, a womanizer and daredevil aviator, dons the RFC uniform. As time passes and he becomes an ace over the skies of France he knows that one day soon his luck must run out.

Chris, a brilliant scholar about to enter university, is driven to enlist by a scandal that shatters his golden future. Hopelessly unfitted for battle, he faces the carnage of Gallipoli not caring whether he lives or dies.

In Elizabeth Darrell's richly detailed, mesmeric novel the Sheridans live, love and fight for survival like the sons of all families caught up in a savage war that changed the old ways forever.
