The Peacock Summer
A NovelBook - 2018
"Summer 1955: Lillian Oberon is young, beautiful, and married to the wealthy and handsome Charles Oberon. She is also the mistress of Cloudesley, a lavish country estate, and the stepmother to a young boy she loves dearly. But not long after her nuptials, she begins to feel that she is just another of her husband's possessions, an objet d'art captured within the manor walls. Bound by familial duty and love, she tries to make peace with her unfulfilling marriage -- until a charismatic artist comes to stay and makes her reexamine everything. The present day: Maggie Oberon is in Australia, trying to hide from the mess she's made of her life back in England. When her beloved grandmother becomes ill and Maggie must return to Cloudesley, she is dismayed to find the once-opulent estate crumbling into decay. As she scrambles to find a way to save the old property, she is unprepared for the dark secrets that have remained hidden in its dark halls. But within them also lies the key that could change its legacy -- and Maggie's life -- forever"--Page  of cover.
