From New York Times bestselling author Lauren Willig comes
The Ashford Affair, a page-turning novel about two women in
different eras, and on different continents, who are
connected by one deeply buried secret.
As a lawyer in a large Manhattan firm, just shy of making
partner, Clementine Evans has finally achieved almost
everything sheâ€™s been working towardsâ€”but now sheâ€™s not sure
itâ€™s enough. Her long hours have led to a broken engagement
and, suddenly single at thirty-four, she feels her messy
life crumbling around her. But when the family gathers for
her grandmother Addieâ€™s ninety-ninth birthday, a relative
lets slip hints about a long-buried family secret, leading
Clemmie on a journey into the past that could change
everything. . . .
Growing up at Ashford Park in the early twentieth century,
Addie has never quite belonged. When her parents passed
away, she was taken into the grand English house by her
aristocratic aunt and uncle, and raised side-by-side with
her beautiful and outgoing cousin, Bea. Though they are as
different as night and day, Addie and Bea are closer than
sisters, through relationships and challenges, and a war
that changes the face of Europe irrevocably. But what
happens when something finally comes along that canâ€™t be
shared? When the love of sisterhood is tested by a bond
thatâ€™s even stronger?
From the inner circles of British society to the skyscrapers
of Manhattan and the red-dirt hills of Kenya, the never-told
secrets of a woman and a family unfurl.
