Andie dreams of becoming an artist. Her best paintings are inspired by the moon and so she’s fascinated by news of the first moon landing. But will it be the same magical place once man has set foot on it, and will her paintings win the attention they deserve?

Press Reviews

The premise of Usborne's Historical House series is a delightful one: a single house in Chelsea forms the backdrop for a set of stories spanning 200 years. Written by three acclaimed authors, each focuses on an atmospheric period.
These are engaging novels, immaculately researched and quietly informative. They can be read in any order; those who read them all will be thrilled by the occasional links that draw characters together across generations.
