In 2011 Zoe Palmer is a guide at Chatsworth House, her hero is the 6th Duke of Devonshire. In 1811 The 6th Duke of Devonshire has just inherited the Dukedom and goes for a ride on his horse. By some strange happening the two meet.

What follows is a series of events which allows the 6th Duke to experience life in the 21st century and gives Zoe the opportunity to experience life in the 19th century. For both of them it is a life-changing time, and they grow close.

Zoe knows everything about the Duke and he knows nothing of her life. Zoe meets Joseph Paxton, another of her heroes, and Charles Dickens whilst at a ball in Hardwick Hall. The Duke gets to ride in a motor car and see how life has changed since his time.

However, the Duke’s time is coming to a close and Zoe knows this. All of this is kept secret from her colleagues in the house. We meet Quintus, a character with his own version of how life should be lived.

We also meet Jane, Zoe’s best friend and the only other person who is aware of what is happening.

All good things come to an end. Or do they?
