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 poet’s suicide. Ghosts awaken and memories, long-consigned to the dark reaches of Grace’s mind, begin to sneak back through the cracks. A shocking secret threatens to emerge; something history has forgotten but Grace never could.

Review of The House at Riverton

I especially liked the protagonist, Grace Bradley, a 98-year-old woman who remembers her time as a maid in Riverton, and deceives everyone. The story is entertaining and with some suspense, which is kept until the end, although there are details that are quite obvious. Well written.

Recommended to pass the time.
