WOW!! What a great book! Morton has crafted a tale very Gothic in tone. Set at the end of the Victorian era, this is the story of love and tragedy; secrets kept and told. Grace is a young housekeeper at Riverton and becomes the lady's maid for the older Hartford sister. Now at the end of her long life, she records her memories for her grandson - memories that show the accepted versions of events in the lives of the Hartford girls were far from correct.
A wonderful tale, this book keeps you guessing long after the last page is read.
