She accurately depicts mortoj Edwardian Era and her vivid description of Riverton made me feel that I was actually there with Grace and the Hartfords. What happened in her relationship with her daughter Ruth over the years? They had different personalities and character traits, so I was able to easily tell them apart and picture them in my head.
It didn’t really intervene with my reading experience. Grace is so dumb. Jan 29, Malia rated it liked it Shelves: Please help improve it by removing unnecessary details and making it more concise.
So the premise was interesting, but I found the book to be kind of boring. I’m okay with vague, but there needs morron be some clarity on what the ‘options’ are as opposed to just making a statement and never exploring the follow-thru aspects.
Unfortunately we didn’t get to experience Grace’s character growth within the story itself. She provides Robbie and Hannah the excuse they need to see each other, as Robbie ostensibly calls on Emmeline but is really slipping notes to Hannah with the locations and times for them to meet.
Grace tells the story, practically from her deathbed katw at 99, of the two sisters and how they witnessed a modernist poet commit suicide in Of course, the story is not as simple as that, and many secrets have been kept for almost years.

I probably would have enjoyed Kate Morton’s debut novel The House at Riverton more if I had not already experienced the greater expression of her writing talent in The Forgotten Garden. I wasn’t at all prepared. And why did Hannah think Grace knew shorthand, anyway?

I barely remember him, you know. It is quite long, which put me off for a while, though it had been sitting on my shelf for a year or so.
