“…a rare glimpse into our recent history, far too rarely plundered by modern novelists, and deftly done.” Andrew Marr
“A novel as intriguing as the house at its heart. I loved it.” Julian Fellowes
When Jessica Tate finds an old country house guide in a box after her grandmother’s funeral she is drawn into a mystery that has remained unsolved for over half a century and is set to change her life forever. Intrigued by the house and the family that lived there, she is propelled into a world of disappearances and deceptions, eventually unlocking the secret of the Yellow Room itself. As the shadows lift, a picture emerges of a landed family fighting to stem the decline in its fortunes in a post-war world in which Britain’s own role is steadily declining.
