Kate Morton's debut novel is a rich and riveting literary mystery. As a teenager, Grace Reeves came to work as a maid at the grand Riverton House, where she became a backstage witness into the lives of Lord Ashbury and his aristocratic and haughty niece Hannah. Now nearly 100 years old, Grace finds her memories reawakened by a filmmaker researching the death--a supposed suicide--of a young poet at Riverton.
