5.0 out of 5 stars Totally compelling - "A secret that can last a lifetime", 6 July 2008
This review is from: The House at Riverton (Paperback)
I bought this book on a dreary Sunday afternoon. You know how it is... desperate for a good read but not quite knowing what to buy. As I picked this book from the shelf I imagined it to be sitting months later, half read and abandoned along with countless others that had not quite managed to grab my attention longer than the first chapter. I couldn't have been more wrong.

Riverton Manor. A grand English country house. Home to Hannah and Emmiline Hartford. Theirs a life of privilage, with all its finery and glittering society parties. Mystery and secrets. Love, loss and tragedy.
Here, hidden beneath the layers of time the ghosts of old memories are stirred.

Their story is told by Grace Bradley. One time housemaid at Riverton. As the tale unfolds a secret is about to emerge, something forgotten in the midsts of time but not as it seems by Grace...

There is just something in the way its written. I couldn't put it down and was disappointed once I'd finished it. Realizing there was nothing more to learn about the lives of Hannah, Emm and Grace.

A book which will stay with you long after it has been returned once more to the shelf!

Riverton Manor is the next book on my list to buy. I have just started to read "The Secret Garden". Just started, as I go into hospital on Weds for a knee replacement on Thurs. By starting it I know that "once I am round" I will be reading it to my hearts content.
