The second novel in the wonderful Beckman trilogy takes the story of Holly Beckman into London's 1930s
Though the Great Depression has brought misery to many, Holly Beckman has a thriving art business, a devoted husband and a son she adores. Until the holiday in Monte Carlo where for the first time she experiences romance. Almost reluctantly, Holly falls in love with the charming American dancer Peter Freeman.
Then two works of art she sold turn out to be forgeries, just as her scapegrace brother Ritchie returns to London after years abroad. Maury, Holly's trusted older brother, suspects that Ritchie is plotting once more to bring the Beckman family down.
