Synopsis: It’s 1923 in the Village of Chorleywood, an idyllic English community on the fringes of Greater London. Here, in the Three Rivers area of Hertfordshire, is where Margot Penfield was born and raised. She is an accomplished horse-woman who loves life in rural England. She is also one of an emerging breed of enterprising and educated young women preparing to enter the world of commerce in Britain. Today, she finds herself at a crossroads. In less than a fortnight, she will graduate from St. Claire’s, a constituent women’s college of Oxford University. As yet and unknown to her, an extraordinary person, is poised to become her mentor. Soon, the door to an ideal career opportunity will open, followed by introductions to select members of English society. She is now on the threshold of an exciting new chapter in her young lifetime as a woman embarking upon a profession heretofore dominated by men. Along the way, and as yet unforeseen by Margot, she has entered a strange and sometimes dangerous new world in the West End of Post Edwardian London. This is her story.
