Larkswood, Paperback / softback Book

Larkswood Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

In the tradition of THE FORSYTE SAGA, a sweeping historical novel that spans three generations, telling the dark secrets of a family torn apart. Larkswood House. The very name suggests birdsong, peace and elegance.

It is home to the Hamilton children - Edward, Cynthia and Harriet - who enjoy the freedom and excitement of privilege.

But in the glorious summer of 1896, with absent parents and a departed governess, disaster strikes the family, leaving it cruelly divided. More than 40 years later, on the eve of the Second World War, Louisa Hamilton, newly presented at court but struck down with glandular fever, is sent to Larkswood to recuperate.

There, for the first time, she meets her grandfather, Edward, home after decades in India. But as Louisa begins to fall under the spell of Larkswood, she realises it holds the key to the mystery that shattered her family two generations before.

Will she find the courage to unravel the dark secrets of the past? And can Larkswood ever become home to happiness again?
