Summary

In the summer of 1924, at a glittering party held at Riverton House, a young poet shot himself. The only witnesses were sisters Hannah and Emmeline -- and Grace, a young housemaid.

In 1999, Grace is ninety-eight years old and living in a nursing home when a young director making a film about the events of that summer visits her. Grace is taken back to Riverton House where memories that she had long ago consigned to the dark reaches of her mind begin to sneak back through the cracks.

Full of secrets and reminiscent of the romantic suspense of Daphne du Maurier, The House at Riverton is a meditation on memory, and the devastation of war. It is also a beautifully rendered window into a fascinating time in history.
