Everard Boothe

January 18, 1769
Everard, a gentleman of amiable and somewhat reserved nature, serves with distinction as a Captain in the 12th Light Dragoons.

Bartolommeo Savile

February 20, 1787

His sartorial elegance is a testament to his respect for the family name, and his generosity extends particularly to his younger sisters, for whom he procures exquisite gifts from his travels.

Lady Mariam, once blissfully married to Baron Kadam Sommer, faced profound grief when her husband succumbed to a vicious bout of malaria, leaving behind a young family. Their children, Paul, Alathea, and George, each bore the loss differently, shaped by their tender ages and individual temperaments. 

In a twist of fate befitting a novel, Lady Mariam found solace and eventually love with Kadam's younger brother, Naresh Sommer, further binding the two families through matrimony and the subsequent birth of two more sons, Kiran and Rahm. This union, while bringing joy, also introduced complex dynamics within the growing family, as they navigated their blended lineage against the backdrop of extensive travels across India, France, Prussia, Spain, and Africa due to Naresh's expansive business interests.

Thus, the Sommers, with their blend of old grief and new bonds, navigate their storied existence, each member contributing to the family's legacy against the rich tapestry of their social and familial obligations.

Despite these familial struggles, Paul has committed himself to continuing his father's philanthropic legacy, supporting charitable organizations and initiatives for the disadvantaged. His pursuit of a legal career is both a tribute to his father's wishes and a personal mission to effect positive change. In society, Paul's reserved nature and his eloquent manner have earned him respect, though he remains an enigmatic figure, preferring to focus on solving others' concerns rather than his own.

Alathea Sommer

October 26, 1787
Alathea, a mere year younger than Paul, harbors faint memories of her biological father. Her loyalty gravitates naturally towards Paul and her biological lineage, though she maintains a cordial, if somewhat distant, relationship with Naresh and her younger stepbrother Kiran. Yet, it is with Rahm, the youngest of the Sommer progeny, that she shares a deep and affectionate bond, often found riding with him through the countryside in companionable silence. A past romantic disappointment during a family visit to Spain—when her heart was broken over a musician deemed unsuitable by her mother and stepfather—deepened her commitment to the arts, her talents in dance becoming her solace and a spectacle at social events.

George Sommer

June 14, 1789
George, the youngest of Mariam and Kadam’s children, was too young to feel the sting of his father's death and embraced Naresh without reservation. This acceptance has occasionally put him at odds with Paul and Alathea, though the siblings strive for harmony. His closeness to his stepbrother Kiran, fostered in childhood, has flourished into a steadfast friendship, marked by shared mischief and mutual support in their social escapades. George’s musical evenings, where he plays the pianoforte, are a highlight for the family, often featuring pieces sourced by Kiran, demonstrating a deep familial connection that transcends their complex beginnings.

Kiran Sommer

September 17, 1792
Kiran, feeling somewhat peripheral in the family dynamics, often finds himself in the role of peacemaker, navigating the subtle undercurrents of rivalry and affection. Despite the familial tensions, he looks up to Paul and aims to emulate his stepbrother's legal aspirations. Known for his kindness and tendency to flatter, Kiran navigates social situations with a deft touch, his friendship with George providing both comfort and occasional comic relief through their youthful indiscretions.

Rahm Sommer

August 27, 1793
Young Rahm revels in the freedom of the outdoors, a stark contrast to the indoor predilections of his family. His early eagerness to join his siblings in riding was championed by Alathea, who insisted he be included and taught him the equestrian arts herself. This kindness forged a strong alliance between them, evident in their shared morning rides and Rahm's protective nature towards his elder stepsister at social gatherings. At the tender age of sixteen, with his father’s approval, Rahm took a bold step by purchasing a commission in the militia, eager to carve out his own path under the open skies.

The Winslow Family

In the esteemed circles of London's elite, the Winslow family holds a particularly dignified place, their narrative woven with both triumph and tragedy. Lord Walter Winslow, a colonel of great repute in his youth, and his wife, the accomplished Lady Jane, an enchantress of the musical arts, were the toast of the town in their early years. 

Their union was blessed later than societal norms dictated, but their passions for their respective pursuits—military and music—kept them well-ensconced in the favor of high society. It was only after several years that they were graced with children, who arrived one after another in quick succession. Tragically, the gallant Lord Winslow was taken from them in battle shortly after the birth of their youngest daughter, leaving Lady Winslow to shoulder the heavy mantle of both mother and father.

Thus, the Winslows navigate the complexities of societal expectations and personal aspirations, guided by the steadfast and talented Lady Jane. Respected and admired within the ton, they uphold the legacy of their beloved patriarch while forging their own paths, each contributing to the rich tapestry of their distinguished family history.

The Right Honourable Colonel

James Winslow

May 11, 1789
James, the eldest son, took to his studies at Eton with the same seriousness that he later applied to his military career, purchasing a commission to follow in the storied footsteps of his father. Though his demeanor is reserved, making him less conspicuous in boisterous social settings, James's steadfast nature and loyalty make him a pillar within the family. His relationship with Harriet is one of mutual respect and shared responsibility; together, they form the backbone of the Winslow family, steering their siblings through society with a careful blend of tradition and compassion. He rides frequently, a pastime inherited from his father, and shares in the responsibilities of leading the family alongside his mother and elder sister.
The Honourable

Francis Winslow

May 19, 1785

The Honourable

Lydia Winslow

June 30, 1794
