House of Secrets,
This review is from: The House at Riverton (Paperback)The House at Riverton keeps a secret that burns in Grace's heart and soul. Grace has been a maid there for years since 1914. Now she's ninety-nine. She's been asked to meet a film producer, who is making a movie about the suicide of a famous poet at Riverton in 1924. It's going to be a blockbuster. A romantic film about the Hartford family and the two sisters who were there when the poet took his life. But only Grace knows the truth. Grace, the faithful maid, who grew up with the Hartford children, saw them through the war, their losses and survivals, became Lady Hannah's maid and the keeper of all her secrets even the biggest one.
It's a beautiful story. Gently written, page after page unfolding the story of a rich English countryside family through Graces's memory.
Touching, gripping, fascinating.
