The house’s current “bride” is the beautiful, effervescent Daphne, who saved Barnsley from ruin, turning the estate into an exclusive culinary destination and hotel. Curious about this legendary family she has never met, Miranda arrives at Barnsley posing as a prospective nanny. But Barnsley is not what Miranda expected. What happened in this house?
