“Grace Bradley has had a very long life and is now starting to fade. When she receives a letter about a film that is soon to be made about a tragedy that occurred between the world wars at Riverton, an estate where she was a housemaid, she is forced to relive her years of service at Riverton and her life after leaving it. You will be totally drawn into Grace's life and will not want the book to end.”
-- Roberta, Alibi Books, Glenview, IL


Description

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 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.

Set as the war-shattered Edwardian summer surrenders to the decadent twenties, "The House at Riverton" is a thrilling mystery and a compelling love story.

"In honeyed tones Caroline Lee offers up the memories of Grace Bradley Lee s reading is intelligent and sympathetic." "AudioFile Magazine"
