La casa de Riverton / The House at Riverton: A Novel
She quickly becomes fascinated by Hannah and Emmeline, granddaughters to her employer Lady Violet and daughters to Master Frederick Hartford. Quotes from The House at Rive The beginning is a bit too slow; it takes time to develop characters, but Morton uses a few different techniques to foreshadow what’s to come in the future almost crossing that invisible line with audience.
I did think the part when Emmeline went to the fortune teller and view spoiler [ the fortune teller’s tarot cards kept coming up with the death card hide spoiler ] I thought this was really creepy and spooky! Grace is so dumb. As expected, with the onset of World War I life as the Riverton household understands it will inescapably alter. I was surprised at the end which makes a work that much better in my mind.

The House at Riverton
I absolutely love this author. There was a lot of deaths in this book, but of course there is going to be when Grace who is 98 tells her story!
This jigsaw puzzle of a tale cleverly takes the various, seemingly insignificant, strands of Graces life and plaits them with the lives of other members of the Riverton household to form a lusterous braid with a couple of astonishing twists at its end. Also, the book is told in flashbacks, and there were structure and continuity problems that annoyed even me, and I think I’m usually pretty chill about that kind of caza.
Grace is a maid and she doesn’t want to tell her story about The House at Riverton which is a film and they try to get information from her about her stay! All said, it’s a must read. Its hard to write a review because I don’t want to spoil anything! I dare say Tiverton wasn’t much of a wife, either. I was surprised that Hannah let her husband and his family control her! This is My guilty pleasure and my go to novel when I am in need of a little tender reading care.
I’m just going to take a moment to shed some tears and process this morron.
Su final a revolucionado mi interior, roza eiverton perturbador. Recommended for those who enjoy historical fiction and a slower-paced but suspenseful plot. Kate Morton creates intriguing characters and weaves a powerful spell slowly and beautifully in this novel and I found the read both entertaining and satisfying. So many times I thought it was over, but NO.
It is slippery, like liquid; infinite and unknowable, like space. It actually did feel almost like a mashup of The Remains of the Day, and Downton Abbey, but Riverton was lacking the things that make them great. The House of Riverton.
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. The book concerns sisters Hannah and Emmeline Hartford, aristocratic children who grow up over the course of the book.
She’s never forgiven rivertln.
Does Grace have any insight into the circumstances of the suicide? They were kept at bay to a believable pointand I really liked and appreciated that. I just went online and noticed that reviewers disagree with me.
