Lillian Quinn never truly understood herself. Her mother had died after giving birth to her younger sister, Primrose, and so Lilly had acted most cruel and most unreasonable with her for many years. But there was another side to the story. Primrose was better, prettier, more talented than Lilly could ever have been. She, instead of Lillian, was the recipient of all the attention; she was going to marry a rich man; she was more like her mother than Lilly was. Jealousy, then. It was jealousy that drove Lillian's hate. But what will happen when they embark on a journey to Ireland together? Will Lillian discover a new side to herself?
