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.
This has a very Downton Abbey feel to it, like Julie said in her Waiting On Wednesday a few weeks ago, AND I SAW DOWNTON ABBEY IN THE BEGINNING OF JANUARY AND SO OBSESSED OH MAI GOD. Guys, it is SO good. If you love historical settings and drama and scandal and love and awesome thing, you will love Downton Abbey.
And if you do watch it, let me know in the comments: how much do you just want Mary and Matthew to GET TOGETHER ALREADY?
