Famous author Olive Wellwood writes a special private book, bound in different colours, for each of her children. In their rambling house near Romney Marsh they play in a story-book world - but their lives, and those of their rich cousins and their friends, the son and daughter of a curator at the new Victoria and Albert Museum, are already inscribed with mystery. Each family carries its own secrets. They grow up in the golden summers of Edwardian times, but as the sons rebel against their parents and the girls dream of independent futures, they are unaware that in the darkness ahead they will be betrayed unintentionally by the adults who love them.

Philip Warren escapes from his home and is then discovered in a museum. This will cause him to end up later in a pottery family. The story of a number of children and their natives during the 1880s and until 1920 holds both joy and sorrow. World War 1 causes a lot of life to change. This is a content rich roman well worth taking part in.
