Abstract
1936. The nation has a new king, Edward VIII. But it is a turbulent time: poverty and unemployment affect many, but trouble few among the ruling elite. Oswald Mosley's New Party seems to offer the vision of the future. May Thomas' first job as a secretary to Sir Philip Blunt will open her eyes to the upper echelons of British society. Secrets are everywhere, most dangerous of all the horror that few in Britain dare voice: the inevitability of another war.

Abstract
From its dawn in the 1660s to its twilight in the 1960s, Cliveden was an emblem of elite misbehaviour and intrigue. Conceived by the Duke of Buckingham as a retreat for his scandalous affair with Anna-Maria, Countess of Shrewsbury, the house later served as the backdrop for the Profumo Affair. In the 300 years between, the house was occupied by a dynasty of remarkable women each of whom left their mark on this great house.
