The House at Riverton is a gorgeous debut novel set in England between the wars. It is the story of an aristocratic family, a house, a mysterious death and a way of life that vanished forever, told in flashback by a woman who witnessed it all and kept a secret for decades. Grace Bradley went to work at Riverton House as a servant when she was just a girl, before the First World War. For years her life was inextricably tied up with the Hartford family, most particularly the two daughters, Hannah and Emmeline. In the summer of 1924, at a glittering society party held at the house, a young poet shot himself. The only witnesses were Hannah and Emmeline and only they -- and Grace -- know the truth. In 1999, when Grace is ninety-eight years old and living out her last days in a nursing home, she is visited by a young director who is making a film about the events of that summer. She takes Grace back to Riverton House and reawakens her memories. Told in flashback, this is the story of Grace's youth during the last days of Edwardian aristocratic privilege shattered by war, of the vibrant twenties and the changes she witnessed as an entire way of life vanished forever. The novel is full of secrets -- some revealed, others hidden forever, reminiscent of the romantic suspense of Daphne du Maurier. It is also a meditation on memory, the devastation of war and a beautifully rendered window into a fascinating time in history. Originally published to critical acclaim in Australia, already sold in ten countries and a #1 bestseller in England, The House at Riverton is a vivid, page-turning novel of suspense and passion, with characters -- and an ending -- the reader won't soon forget.

Warning: This is an independent addition to The Lake House, meant to enhance your experience of the original book. If you have not yet bought the original copy, make sure to purchase it before buying this unofficial summary from aBookaDay. INTRODUCTION The Lake House by Kate Morton is about diving into the past. The novel transports the reader to different time-periods throughout a century. The story takes place in the early 1900's, the 1930's (1932 - 1933 for the most part), and in 2003. In August 1933, a young woman buries something in the woods. We aren't sure what it is or who she is, but we learn she will never forget what she's done. The book then takes us to June 1933, a month earlier, where we meet a young, adventurous, romantic girl named Alice Edevane. Alice lives with her mother, Eleanor, her father, Anthony, her two sisters (her younger sister Clementine and her older sister Deborah), and her baby brother, Theodore, on an estate known as Loeanneth. Leoanneth, located in Cornwall, England, is described through Alice's thoughts as being a very beautiful and peaceful place to live. It's a beautiful day and all Alice wants to do is go talk with Ben Munro and forget about the annual Midsummer Party her mother is frantically preparing for. We are then brought to the year 2003, where we're introduced to detective Sadie Sparrow. We learn that she's on temporarily leave for mishandling a case involving a missing child (referred to as the Bailey case throughout the novel) and is visiting her grandfather who lives in Cornwall. When she's on her daily run, she stumbles across an abandoned Loeanneth. She learns that the little baby, Theodore disappeared during a party held at Loeanneth back in June 1933. The book takes the reader back and forth between the early 1900's, the 1930's, and to the year 2003 as Sadie uncovers the truth behind Theodore Edevanes disappearance. The novel is about motherhood, the difficulties of motherhood, and the loss of oneself as well as the loss of loved ones. It's about the lives of different characters and the decisions they make when placed in difficult situations. Available on PC, Mac, smart phone, tablet or Kindle device. (c) 2015 All Rights Reserved

From the New York Times and internationally bestselling author of The Distant Hours, The Forgotten Garden, and The House at Riverton, a spellbinding new novel filled with mystery, thievery, murder, and enduring love. During a summer party at the family farm in the English countryside, sixteen-year-old Laurel Nicolson has escaped to her childhood tree house and is happily dreaming of the future. She spies a stranger coming up the long road to the farm and watches as her mother speaks to him. Before the afternoon is over, Laurel will witness a shocking crime. A crime that challenges everything she knows about her family and especially her mother, Dorothy—her vivacious, loving, nearly perfect mother. Now, fifty years later, Laurel is a successful and well-regarded actress living in London. The family is gathering at Greenacres farm for Dorothy’s ninetieth birthday. Realizing that this may be her last chance, Laurel searches for answers to the questions that still haunt her from that long-ago day, answers that can only be found in Dorothy’s past. Dorothy’s story takes the reader from pre–WWII England through the blitz, to the ’60s and beyond. It is the secret history of three strangers from vastly different worlds—Dorothy, Vivien, and Jimmy—who meet by chance in wartime London and whose lives are forever entwined. The Secret Keeper explores longings and dreams and the unexpected consequences they sometimes bring. It is an unforgettable story of lovers and friends, deception and passion that is told—in Morton’s signature style—against a backdrop of events that changed the world.

From the internationally bestselling author of The House at Riverton, The Secret Keeper, The Distant Hours, and The Lake House, an unforgettable novel that transports us from the back alleys of poverty of pre-World War I London to the shores of colonial Australia where so many made a fresh start, and back to the windswept coast of Cornwall, England, past and present. A tiny girl is abandoned on a ship headed for Australia in 1913. She arrives completely alone with nothing but a small suitcase containing a few clothes and a single book—a beautiful volume of fairy tales. She is taken in by the dockmaster and his wife and raised as their own. On her twenty-first birthday, they tell her the truth, and with her sense of self shattered and very little to go on, "Nell" sets out to trace her real identity. Her quest leads her to Blackhurst Manor on the Cornish coast and the secrets of the doomed Mountrachet family. But it is not until her granddaughter, Cassandra, takes up the search after Nell’s death that all the pieces of the puzzle are assembled. A spellbinding tale of mystery and self-discovery, The Forgotten Garden will take hold of your imagination and never let go.
