"A lush, historical novel about the secretive Darlingtons of Wentworth Hall!The prettiest people often have the ugliest secrets…     Eighteen-year-old Maggie Darlington has turned into an entirely different person. The once spirited teen is now passive and reserved. A change Lord and Lady Darlington can’t help but be grateful for.     It’s 1912, and the Darlingtons of Wentworth Hall have more than just the extensive grounds to maintain. As one of Britain’s most elite families, they need to keep up appearances that things are as they have always been…even as their carefully constructed faÇade rapidly comes undone.     Maggie has a secret. And she’s not the only one…the handsome groom Michael, the beautiful new French nanny Therese, the Darlingtons’ teenage houseguests Teddy and Jessica, and even Maggie’s younger sister Lila are all hiding something. Passion, betrayal, heartache, and whispered declarations of love take place under the Darlingtons’ massive roof. And one of these secrets has the power to ruin the Darlingtons forever.     When scandalous satires start appearing in the newspaper with details that closely mirror the lives of the Darlingtons, everyone is looking over their shoulder, worrying their scandal will be next. Because at Wentworth Hall, nothing stays secret for long"

I only recently found out about this one, but was instantly excited for it.  I am a HUGE fan of all things Downton Abbey, Upstairs Downstairs, you get my drift so getting this kind of story but for the YA market is so beyond thrilling for me.  This can not come soon enough!!!


  1. A YA version of Downton/Upstairs Downstairs! Wow.

  2. I love the cover! If only this was Adult! Although I suppose it's nice that it isn't. *grin*

    Patricia // My WOW

  3. I'm very excited to read this too! I love Upstairs/Downstairs, so I'm betting I'm going to love this too, I'm definitely getting a copy when it's released.
