Multi-million-copy bestselling author Kate Morton skyrocketed to critical acclaim with this rich and engrossing debut – a vivid story of suspense and passion, with unforgettable characters.

Within its four walls lay a secret that would last a lifetime. Summer 1924: On the eve of a glittering Society party, by the lake of a grand English country house, a young poet takes his life. The only witnesses, sisters Hannah and Emmeline Hartford, will never speak to each other again. Winter 1999: Grace Bradley, 98, one-time housemaid of Riverton Manor, is visited by a young director making a film about the poet's suicide. Ghosts awaken and memories, long-consigned to the dark reaches of Grace's mind, begin to sneak back through the cracks. A shocking secret threatens to emerge; something history has forgotten but Grace never could. A thrilling mystery and a compelling love story, The House at Riverton will appeal to readers of Ian McEwan's Atonement, L.P. Hartley's The Go-Between, and lovers of the film Gosford Park.

'An extraordinary debut.'
The Sunday Telegraph

'Combines a rich historical setting with a powerful emotional drama – and a gripping mystery.'
The Australian Women's Weekly

"In honeyed tones Caroline Lee offers up the memories of Grace Bradley, a 98-year-old who recounts a summer in the 1920s that changed the lives of everyone connected to Riverton Manor. When a modern-day filmmaker urges Grace to remember what life was like for her as a lady's maid, she spares no detail recreating life above and below stairs. Lee delicately relates Grace's remembrances of a young poet's alleged suicide and the sisters who witnessed it, the social turbulence brought about by WWI, and the numerous convoluted relationships that define this sprawling saga. Lee's reading is intelligent and sympathetic, managing a clear sense of place and creating a believable distance between period diction and contemporary speech."

"The House at Riverton is one of those novels which act on the reader somewhat like Pringles crisps. You may not intend to stay up until 3am, but there you are, turning the pages faster and faster, pretending the alarm clock isn't set for 7am."
The Irish Times
