London, 1926. Two baby girls are born just hours and miles apart. Both will grow up in very different families, each will carry the burden of responsibility, service, and duty. One will wear the Crown of the Commonwealth, the other will bury the bodies of the dead. Over the course of ninety years, their paths will cross three times. This is the story of Betsy and Lilibet.

Sophie Duffy dazzles her latest work of familial/historical fiction. A tale which spans generations to explore the life in London for two very separate, and yet very similar, women.
