In 2009, Julia Conley inherits a house in England from an elderly aunt she never knew. In 1849, after years trapped in a loveless marriage, Imogen Grantham comes to life when she meets an enigmatic painter who is commissioned to paint her portrait. Their stories converge in the present, and Julia learns of the long-repressed secrets of her family, as well as a little about herself.
