Celebrated author of six bestselling novels, this is Alan Titchmarsh's most ambitious novel to date. A multi-generational story of intrigue, rivalry and romance between two family's auction houses in Bath.
For three generations the family-run auction houses of the Ballantynes and the Kings have been fierce rivals. The grandparents Henry Ballantyne and Richard King were once best friends, despite their different backgrounds but then they fell for the same girl, Eleanor Faraday. Eleanor eventually picked Henry and the seeds were sown for a bitter feud that flourished between the two clans for over six decades. But as both firms prepare to celebrate their half century, two of the grandchildren, Jamie Ballantyne and Artemis King, decide it's time to bury the hatchet and arrange a shared party for both families. Things don't go according to plan though and revelations at the party rock the foundations of both families, as a web of deceit and intrigue, forgery and fraud are ruinously exposed. Jamie and Artemis uncover secrets that were better left undisturbed, but their discovery brings them closer together and they find themselves falling in love. Will their love be strong enough to survive the scandal they have unwittingly revealed?
