On My Bedside {The House at Riverton}

While down in Savannah, I mentioned that I was reading The House at Riverton by Kate Morton.  It came highly recommended by many of you and boy were you ever right – it was enchanting and engaging and thoroughly enjoyable!!  A perfect choice for those of us biding time until Downton Abbey comes back in January 2014,  (ugh, could that be any farther away?!!?) I often found myself marveling at how similar many of the characters and events in the book were to that favorite television series. 

The House at Riverton

Goodreads says: 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, 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.

I have added a few of Morton’s other works to my list!!  Let me know what’s on your bedside…
