The country estate of Tyringham Park is the epitome of wealth and privilege. Home to the Blackshaws, it finds itself the backdrop to tragedy.
It is a beautiful day in 1917, and Tyringham Park is in an uproar after little Victoria Blackshaw, an innocent toddler, disappears without a trace. The feverish search for Victoria soon uncovers jealousies and deceits that both the upstairs and downstairs inhabitants of the grand estate have fought for years to keep hidden.
As times passes, Victoria’s disappearance casts a long shadow over all of their lives. Charlotte, the Blackshaw’s less favored eight-year-old daughter, finds herself severely impacted by the loss of her sister. As the years pass, she begins to believe that her mother wishes it was she who had disappeared that day rather than the pretty Victoria. Her greatest wish is to escape the confines of the estate that she once loved; however, Tyringham Park and its mysteries may never release its hold on her. Like all those at Tyringham Park, she is forced into a web of passions and secrets, trysts and betrayals that affect the days of everyone connected to this once great house.
