She even manages to convince her less well-off sister, June, to move into a cozy cottage on the grounds with her husband Robert.

At first both families seem to be settling in well, sharing delicious meals and havingfun times together. Their grown-up children, Hugh and Corinna, visit from London and there even seems to be a hint of romance in the air for them, while the surviving grandparents from both sides of the family move into the big house and forge new friendships. But the arrival of a cantankerous great aunt will reveal the cracks in the family s tangled relationships and will even threaten to unveil the greatest secret of all while May thought moving George to the country would put a stop to his affairs, he has begun to fall in love with his sister-in-law, June.
