  • "Brother and sister Charlie and Ros discover that they have inherited Ashenden, a beautiful eighteenth-century house that is set in acres of English countryside and in need of serious repair. Now they must decide: do they try to keep it in the family or will they have to sell it? Moving back in time, in an adroitly interwoven narrative spanning two and a half centuries, we meet those who have built the house, lived in it, worked in it, loved it, and those who would subvert it to their own ends."
  • "An epic saga of the upstairs and downstairs residents of an English country house which spans some 240 years and includes the stories of its original architect, a Victorian family that shared four decades of family history, soldiers billeted in the house during World War I, and a young couple who restores the house in the 1950s."
  • "A novel about people, a country estate, and living history "The house contains time. Its walls hold stories. Births and deaths, comings and goings, people and events passing through. . . . For now, however, it lies suspended in a kind of emptiness, as if it has fallen asleep or someone has put it under a spell. This silence won't last: can't last. Something will have to be done." When brother and sister Charlie and Ros discover that they have inherited their aunt's grand English country house, they must decide if they should sell it. As they survey the effects of time on the estate's architectural treasures, a narrative spanning two and a half centuries unfolds. We meet those who built the house, lived in it and loved it, worked in it, and those who would subvert it to their own ends. Each chapter is skillfully woven into the others so that the storylines of the upstairs and downstairs characters and their relatives and descendants intertwine to make a rich tapestry. A beautifully written novel full of humor, heart, and poignancy, Ashenden is an evocative portrait of a house that becomes a character as compelling as the people who inhabit it."@en
