Summer 1924: 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.
Winter 1999: Grace Bradley, 98, one-time housemaid of Riverton Manor, is visited by a young director making a film about the poet's suicide. Ghosts awaken and 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 20s, The Shifting Fog is a thrilling mystery and a compelling love story.
An alternate title for this novel is The House at Riverton.

Slow in places

The first part of the story set in a large country house was interesting and kept me listening. However once the story moved to London the bordom set in and by the end I really hoped all the characters met an unpleasant painful death.
Grace the maid.
The description of life below stairs pre 1914.
The most boring book I have ever listened to.
