In the aftermath of the Great War, the de Witt family are struggling to piece together the shattered fragments of their lives. Rudolf and his wife Verena, still reeling from the loss of their second son, don't know how to function in the post-war world. Stoneythorpe Hall has become an empty shell with no servants to ensure its upkeep. Celia, the de Witt's youngest daughter, is still desperate to spread her wings and see more of the world. To escape Stoneythorpe and the painful secrets that lie there, she moves to London and embraces life and love in the Roaring Twenties.

I have an interest in the period but am not sure if I’ll read it.

I couldn't get "into" the story, because the moment you really got interested in one plot line, the author would bait and switch for a seemingly completely unrelated one. There's some nice historical detail, but I never felt like I had really been taken back in time into the world of the story.

I found this to be a bit of a hotchpotch, too many different plot lines for my liking. However, it did contain some entertaining historical detail.
