The House at Riverton (Kate Morton)
Summer 1924: On the eve of a glittering Society party, by the lake of a grand English country house, a young poet takes his life. The only witnesses, sisters Hannah and Emmeline Hartford, will never speak to each other again. Winter 1999: Grace Bradley, 98, one-time housemaid of Riverton Manor, is visited by a young director making a film about the poetÂ´s suicide. Ghosts awaken and memories, long-consigned to the dark reaches of GraceÂ´s mind, begin to sneak back through the cracks. A shocking secret threatens to emerge; something history has forgotten but Grace never could. A thrilling mystery and a compelling love story, The House at Riverton will appeal to readers of Ian McEwanÂ´s Atonement, L.P. HartleyÂ´s The Go-Between, and lovers of the film Gosford Park.
