Volume Three of the dramatic saga of the Lorimer Family: Scattered by war, but the Lorimer saga continues....

The ball that Lord and Lady Glanville give for the 21st birthday of their nephew Brinsley Lorimer is a glittering social occasion in their country house, Blaize. But the year is 1914 and the telegram that summons Brinsley from the dance floor to the Western Front heralds the scattering of the Lorimer family.

While Brinsley's 23-year-old sister Kate goes to Serbia to work as a doctor, Dr Margaret Lorimer converts her sister's opera house at Blaize into a military hospital. Only after the war ends is Margaret able to look into the future with hope for those of the younger generation who have survived....
