Synopsis

Farthing Abbey by Michael Jenner

Gervase and Ophelia Lloyd-Beauchamp inherit Farthing Abbey, a long neglected estate in a mellow English setting, and with it a chance to redeem a flawed marriage. But the old pile must pay its way. A curious crew of media folk comes down for the weekend: Events take a startling turn. An erotic encounter in the Temple of Venus, a broody scene in the Chinese Boudoir. A drunken repast in the Privy Parlour, fights in the Long Gallery, a body left for dead in the Orangery. Tragedy lurks beneath the waters of the Scenic Lake. Come morning, an artist finds his muse and a lady fondly imagines her true love. But a crime from the distant past reaches out to claim those living in the present. The fate of a sensitive young wife with a brutish older husband unravels in a world where individuals bow to blind forces pulling unseen strings behind the stones of Farthing Abbey. With its mix of comic and tragic, real and surreal, this novel has the pace of a modern film or TV drama unfolding before your eyes.

Lovereading is not only an amazing site, but it's one of my very favourites. It's like visiting a fascinating bookstore, but better.

Rebecca Jayne Barrett

It has opened my eyes to different authors and genres. Just log on and try, you will be surprised and not want for reading material again.

Jocelyn Garvey

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.

Jen Rainbow

It's the first site that I visit when deciding on the next set of books to buy. A particular treat is being able to download an extract.
