England
Lady Frances Ashbourne and her friend Lettie Hallenby risk everything for the sake of Women’s Suffrage, but when Frances’ parents order her to marry to save the family fortune, will she give up her principles, as well as her freedom?

Lord Edward Pemberton has gone too far. Rather than just bedding his latest conquest, he’s married her and now he needs to find a way out, especially as his parents have just suggested he find himself a wife. But will his desperate solution have unforeseen consequences?

Austria
Rosa Blum is madly in love with penniless artist Max Sommer, but when her parents find out, they decide to pay him off, rather than let him ruin their daughter’s life. Rosa is heartbroken when Max disappears and throws herself into her music, hoping that one day love will find her again. But secrets rarely remain hidden for ever…..

Italy
Lucrecia Rossi didn’t mean to push the count’s son over the cliff edge, and she wouldn’t have done, if he hadn’t tried to rape her… a second time. Now, she needs to escape, and her father and brother have the perfect plan. All they need to do is to move away and their troubles will be far behind them…

This is the first of a six part chronicle, telling the stories of several individuals and their families during the build-up to and through the First World War.
