The House at Riverton – Kate Morton

Brief Synopsis: Grace begins life as a maid at a grand house. She soon becomes embroiled in family life and feels especial closeness towards Hannah Hartford, one of the house’s daughters. This story has a dual narrative from Grace as a young girl at Riverton and from how she is now at the age of 99.

 Good Points: Kate Morton is an excellent wordsmith and spins out secrets and mysteries to the very end of the book, keeping you guessing and leaving you desperate to read more of her work.

Bad Points: It’s a little slow to start with but persevere – it’s worth it.

Good For: Unravelling a mystery on blustery autumn nights

Overall: 4.5/5
