(From the publisher):
"And in the Jubilee year I thought myself a decidedly accomplished person."
A year of celebration and, for the young Londoners of De Crespigny Park and Grove Lane, a year to experience the world of adult society. Nancy Lord finds a new restlessness and yearns for independence. Yet what unexpected events follow, and to what lengths she must go to prove her strength and to guard her precious secret. Horace Lord's dreams of a life of leisure seem fulfilled when a long-lost aunt appears, eager to indulge him. But the mysterious woman holds a darker past, and after the Jubilee it is time to face the consequences of innocent pleasures and frivolous pursuits.
