AMBERWELL by D. E. Stevenson


Email this review


The lineage of the 18th century house and its inhabitants comes down to today when the war has reduced large gestures and economies take their place. With two sons in the service and Anne dismissed for an ill advised marriage, Nell is left to pathetic attempts to keep Amberwell alive. But the story is largely Anne's, for on her husband's death she attains a new freedom and returns to work out a future of promise. A nice one among Stevenson's many.
