The House at Riverton

Read June 2011

My rating: 4 out of 5

"Grace Bradley, ninety-eight, one-time housemaid of Riverton Manor, is visited by a young director making a film about the poet's suicide. Ghosts awaken and old 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."

My review:I enjoyed this book, her writing style is very catchy. It starts off slow but as you get further and further into the story, you know there is so much more to come, yet she leaves you guessing till the very end. Good love story.
