When Rory Gallagher calls off his wedding to childhood sweetheart Kate Dowie, she vows never to return to Tonsbry, the Wiltshire country estate that has been her family's home for generations. Jilted only hours from the altar, she has no choice but to re-build her life in London.
As heir to the estate, however, Kate cannot stay away for ever. After the death of her uncle Leo, her inheritance brings back memories. It also brings her massive debts, the threat of re-possession from a City loan company, and the devastating news that Rory is living and working in the grounds. They have one hope of saving the property: an ambitious plan to revive the gin distillery that once operated on the estate. Despite their new relationships, working together begins to heal Kate and Rory's emotional wounds....
