    Step back in time ... to the home, for the past 20 years, of Mr and Mrs Lamont. It is Hogmanay 1815, King George III is still on the throne and Britain is now at peace with France. Tonight the family and a select party of guests will bring in the New Year - 1816 style! But under the surface, financial trouble is brewing and Mr Lamont is preparing to sell the family home to Mrs Catherine Farquharson, a wealthy widow. The household is extremely busy but you are very welcome ...
