A beautifully atmospheric debut about 240 years in the life of an English country house, “this book is a sparkling jewel: full of fascinating detail, high drama, and sly wit” (Amanda Foreman, author of Georgiana: Duchess of Devonshire).The house contains time. Its walls hold stories. Births and deaths, comings and goings, people and events passing through… For now, however, it lies suspended in a kind of emptiness, as if it has fallen asleep or someone has put it under a spell. This silence won’t last: can’t last. Something will have to be done.When brother and sister Charlie and Ros discover that they have inherited Ashenden, the beautiful eighteenth-century English country house steeped in their family history, they face an important decision: Do they try to keep it in the family or do they sell it?Moving back in time, in a beguiling narrative spanning two and a half centuries, we meet those who have built the house, lived in it, loved it, and those who would subvert it to their own ends. Each chapter is adroitly woven into the others so the storylines of the upstairs and downstairs characters and their relatives and descendants intertwine to form a rich tapestry. Perfect for the millions of avid viewers of Downton Abbey and praised for its “top-notch writing, strong character development, and excellent plot” (Library Journal, starred review), Ashenden is an evocative portrait of a house that is a character as compelling as the people who inhabit it.

Elizabeth Wilhide is a prolific writer of books on design and decoration. She also wrote a novel entitled, Ashenden, which outlines the history of a grand English country house through the eyes of its past owners and their decendants. Her design books include: The MacKintosh Style: Design and Decor, Scandinavian Modern Home, The Interior Design Directory, and New Loft Living.
