The House At Harcourt by Anita Burgh.

The House of Harcourt is a Norman family, descended from the Viking Bernard the Dane, the brother of Rollo of Normandy, and named after its seigneurie of Harcourt in Normandy. Its mottos were "Gesta verbis praeveniant" (Olonde branch), "Gesta verbis praevenient" (Beuvron branch), and "Le bon temps viendra. de France" (English branch). In 1280 they established the Collège d'Harcourt in Paris, now the Lycée Saint-Louis at 44 boulevard Saint-Michel.

Harcourt House was a palatial residence built in about 1722 by Thomas Archer on Cavendish Square. The main structure was largely demolished in 1906 leaving only the southern wing on the corner with Margaret Street, now Flanders House. A 3-D reconstruction of the original building has been made by Survey of London. The southern wing of the building survives today as 1A Cavendish Square.

Eliza Forester is left motherless at the tender age of three when her father orders his wife from the house, accusing her of infidelity. He keeps the child, not out of love, but to spite his wife, and Eliza grows up believing her mother is dead. Her happiest times are spent with Ruby and Jerome, the children of tenant farmers on her father's estate. When, at 16, Eliza's innocent friendship with Jerome turns to love, Eliza—like her mother—is banished to London to live with her aunt. Her father, determined she will make a "good" match, lies to her that Jerome has married, and forces her to wed aristocratic, dissolute Hedworth Lambton. It is the greatest mistake of her life.

I'm new to Anita Burgh's writings, but I tell you that I could not put this book down. I read it twice in a row because I couldn't believe it was over. The House of Harcourt takes you back in time as if you've lived in the 1700's. Each character is thoroughly developed. From the beginning to the end, it all unfolds and comes together nicely. I'm a fan of Anita Burgh after reading House of Harcourt. Now, I'm looking forward to reading other books she has written. Enjoy as I'm sure you will.

If you enjoy great storytelling and fiction set in 1800's England, then you will love this book. I also enjoy Maureen Lee and Maeve Binchy - so if you enjoy them as well you will love Anita Burgh.
You really get to know Anita's characters and I was sorry when the book was finished!
