    The Glass House, my first book by Eve Chase was a great read for me. It's 1971, and Rita arrives at Foxcote Manor in the Forest of Dean, Gloucestershire, nanny for the Harrington family, looking after Hera and Teddy. The children's mother, Jeanie Harrington is fragile, having recently suffered a terrible trauma, whilst their reserved but friendly father, Walter runs the family business, Harrington Glass, based in Mayfair, London. When a baby girl is found abandoned in the woods close by the Manor House, the Harrington's take her in with the intention of informing the local authorities, but Jeanie is insistent that they keep her, instead. As the gorgeous baby fills everybody's lives with joy during a blissful summer, will the Harrington's dreams be sustained or shatter like glass? As the story moves between 1971 and the current day, the reader is privy to the thoughts and feelings of the main characters. The author's character creation is first-class and I particularly appreciated her portrayal of Rita's caring, stoical and imperturbable personality. The Forest of Dean provides a wonderfully atmospheric setting and is also vital to the story which is wonderfully depicted in the smart descriptiveness that gives the place a life of its own. Overall, The Glass House is a very fulfilling and rewarding read that will keep you guessing. I received a complimentary copy of this novel at my request from Penguin UK - Michael Joseph via NetGalley and this review is my unbiased opinion.
