The House at Riverton Summary


The House at Riverton by Kate Morton

Originally published in 2007, Kate Morton's debut novel, The House at Riverton, became a bestselling sensation and won the Richard and Judy Best Read of the Year. This special tenth anniversary edition of Kate Morton's acclaimed debut features a foreword from the author.

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.

A rollicking good yarn of the sort you might devour in a single weekend * Vogue *
An extraordinary debut . . . Told with a lovely turn of phrase by someone who knows how to eke out tantalising secrets and drama . . . A fascinating time in history, and Morton brings it to life with obvious attention to detail and thorough research * Sunday Telegraph *
An extremely accomplished mystery story . . . haunting and enthralling . . . exquisite not only in the writing but also in the structure * Good Reading *
