The House at Riverton by Kate Morton

Grace came to Riverton Manor as a housemaid in 1914, at 14 years old. Her life became forever enmeshed with David, Hannah and Emmeline, grandchildren of the Master. At age 98, Grace looks back over her years of service and silence and tells her story before it is too late.

As acknowledged by the author in the afterword, this novel is reminiscent of "Remains of the Day," "Gosford Park," "The Great Gatsby" and many other gothic romance novels resulting in a magnificently enjoyable and hard to put down read. Check catalog for availability.
