County Mayo, Ireland, 1947.

In the worst winter in living memory, Ruby Flynn is rescued from the tiny cottage on the Atlantic coast where her family has perished. She is one of the storm orphans, taken in by nuns to be educated for a life in service. Now she must find her own way in the outside world.

The FitzDeane family have a thriving shipping business in Liverpool and they also own beautiful Ballyford Castle in Mayo. When Ruby is appointed as their nursery maid, a dangerous attraction to the young Lord FitzDeane begins to grow. Soon the tragedies and secrets that link her family to his will threaten to overwhelm them.

The darkest sins cast the longest shadows.

Nadine Dorries grew up in a working-class family in Liverpool. She spent part of her childhood living on a farm with her grandmother, and attended school in a small remote village in the west of Ireland. She trained as a nurse, then went on to establish and then sell her own business. Her novels, set in Liverpool and Ireland, have sold 1.5 million copies and many of them have been Sunday Times bestsellers. She has been the MP for Mid-Bedfordshire since 2005 and has three daughters. @NadineDorries
