Here is the synopsis on Goodreads:
On the eve of a glittering society party, by the lake of a grand English country house, a young poet takes his life. The only witnesses, sisters Hannah and Emmeline Hartford, will never speak to each other again.
Grace Bradley, ninety-eight, one-time housemaid of Riverton Manor, is visited by a young director making a film about the poet’s suicide. Ghosts awaken and old memories – long consigned to the dark reaches of Grace’s mind – begin to sneak back through the cracks. A shocking secret threatens to emerge, something history has forgotten but Grace never could.
Set as the war-shattered Edwardian summer surrenders to the decadent twenties, The House at Riverton is a thrilling mystery and a compelling love story.

So it’s time to catch up with her other books I have not read yet. To do so, I’d like to know if some of you would be interested in a read-along.
The book has 4 parts, about 160 pages each, so we could have a discussion on each part every Monday, either in October or November.
I will provide questions ahead of time, as I think it’s easier to think about your answers to the questions as you read the book.
If you are interested in doing this read-along with me,
please write your name,
blog address if you have,
and your email address [so that I can contact you when this is ready to go]
in a comment below – before Aug 31.
Tell me also if you prefer October or November,
and if any other day of the week would be more convenient to you.
LOOKING FORWARD TO READ THIS BOOK WITH YOU!
there WILL BE a read-along of The House At Riverton,
