Instead, her parents devote their energy to supporting Milly's poisonous elder brother, Jasper. Although Milly has more talent in her left riding boot than Jasper will ever have, her family don't see racing as an appropriate career for a girl, and Milly's life consists of Prue Leith cookery courses and debs' balls in London.

About the Author

Tilly Bagshawe

Tilly Bagshawe is the internationally bestselling author of four previous novels. A teenage single mother at 17, Tilly won a place at Cambridge University and took her baby daughter with her. She went on to enjoy a successful career in The City before becoming a writer. As a journalist, Tilly contributed regularly to the Sunday Times, Daily Mail and Evening Standard before following in the footsteps of her sister Louise and turning her hand to novels.


Tilly's first book, Adored, was a smash hit on both sides of the Atlantic and she hasn't looked back since. She is married and has two young sons as well as Tilly's daughter Sefi, who is now 18. The family divide their time between their homes in Kensington and Los Angeles and their beach house on Nantucket Island.
