Summary
The Knight sisters lead lives that bore a remarkable resemblance to the plots of their aunt's famous novels. They experienced the pains of blighted love, the joy of patience rewarded, and the sorrow of losing their childhood home. This is the story of the sisters' extraordinary journey from the ordered world of Regency England to the turbulent upheaval of nineteenth-century Ireland
