The Manor House of Nonesuch has been home to generations of passionate, headstrong Herringe women.
But the last of them, the passionate, mysterious Stella, known by some as the Witch of Ashmore, died in the fire which consumed the house and now Nonesuch has passed to her cousin, and former lover, John Dawe.
John adores Nonesuch, but for his wife, Anna, the house is tainted by Stella's memory.
As John's obsession with rebuilding Nonesuch intensifies, so Anna's relationship with him disintegrates. And Eleanor, the baby that should have brought them together, drives them further apart.
As Anna battles to save her crumbling marriage, the restoration work progresses and layers of history are peeled back.
Soon, the grim secret that lies at the heart of Nonesuch will be revealed...
