Attention Downton Abbey fans!

Kate Morton's books feature intricate family secrets and puzzles, spread out over generations. She has a fine grasp of character and usually writes from the viewpoint of one or more persons. The House at Riverton features the dying thoughts of a woman who was a young servant at a great English country estate in 1914, just before WWI, and her involvment in a family secret she still thinks about. A young filmaker wants to do a movie about the family and interviews her, sparking her memories. Intelligent writing,rich in plot, this is a good read!ML
