When her husband's Great Aunt Beth dies, Ellie is shocked to have been bequeathed a significant amount of valuable jewellery.

But before she can receive it, she must solve the challenge set by the old lady: to find out what scandal was in her husband’s family in Victorian times.

Ellie is not the only one who is on a genealogy trail: at the funeral, she and husband Ivan meet Canadian Jack Berenson, an unlikely and unknown friend of Beth's.

Jack charms Ellie, sharing his own family history research and connections.

But Ellie and Ivan's marriage is already showing cracks, and Jack quickly steps in to the gap...

What is the connection with a wealthy woman brought low in 1844? Why did Beth set this challenge for Ellie?

The two women’s lives are tangled together, in this family-history thriller.
