    The house at Riverton

    This book dragged a bit. Could have been 100 pages less. Characters were believable, but story went back and forth too much.

    Being a huge fan of historical fiction, Kate Morton has once more had me in thrall as I lived Grace's life right there by her side. It brought home to me the vast differences of the levels of society, the privileged and those not so much, although the serving class was led to believe themselves extremely fortunate. It truly restricts everyone's lives with no one being the better for it. Morton has a way of getting into the minds and hearts of her characters and evokes personal emotions as the scenes unfold. I feel like I would recognize the house at Riverton and know my way to the lake given her excellent descriptive prose. The story is at once mysterious and spell-binding, fraught with unforgettable personalities and the secret is kept until the shocking end. I look forward to more novels by this author.

    If you're missing Downton...

    Home sick...again. But found some well written escapist literature to pass the time. If you've finished Downton season three and are hankering for some Edwardian country house drama then you'll enjoy this.

    The House at Riverton

    Surprise ending. You get almost to the end before you know what the big secret is, and then when you think you know who did what you are wrong.

    This story should be made into a mov

    One of the best novels I have read it in a very long time. Excellent suspense and very well written. At no times was I bored of the storyline. Morton keeps you guessing right until the end exactly what went wrong with this family. I especially liked the narrator being an old woman who lived a long life. Highly recommended!
