Starting in the late fifteenth century, and concluding during the time of the Restoration - The House at Old Vine . I must say that although I have read almost every one of Norah Lofts' books, I'm not quite sure if I've ever read this one in particular.

Starting in the late fifteenth century, and concluding during the time of the Restoration - The House at Old Vine follows the story of Josiana Greenwood - an illegitimate descendant of Martin Reed. While I certainly remember reading the first book of the trilogy, as well as the third, I can't really remember reading this book. When I initially started reading it, I had thought that it was a reread for me from at least twelve years ago.

The House at Old Vine is the second in a trilogy of novels by Norah Lofts about the inhabitants of a country house in Suffolk from the late fourteenth century to the middle of the twentieth. Covering the turbulent years of 1496 to 1680. It follows six generations of the descendants of Martin Reed, who founded the 'House' dynasty through his act of rebellion in The Town House, through persecution, war and revolution, from the era of Christopher Columbus to the Restoration of Charles II. Written with Lofts' customary attention to historical detail, this is a series of stories about characters who lived and died for what they believed.

I had looked high and low for this book for many, many years but could not remember the title of the book nor the name of the author. I read it in 1975 for an Independent Reading Class (an easy "A" and a requirement for graduation which I needed 3000 pages for and "A")....
I searched while we lived for 5 years in the UK in their many book stores (old and new) but without success... 30 years after I read the book we lived in the Cotswolds and I had remembered the referencing "Cotswold Sheep" (only once) in the book... this is how much of an impression this book made on me in High School....it holds a place near and dear in my heart...
I enjoyed the story very much and was excited to find it was part of a trilogy and I bought the other books....

This series was recommended among their favourite books by one of my loved authors.(Unfortunately I do not at present remember either the author-apart from the fact it was a woman- or the venue in which the "Favourite Book List" appeared. It could have been The Week magazine or it might have been on Facebook's Good Read page. Either way I ordered the books and have enjoyed the first two and am now on my third.
Historical details of how people lived in the times of Mary Tudor, through Elizabeth and the Civil War, right up to the Restoration, are accurately given and explained through the eyes of ordinary people who come and go through the House. Everyone has a tale to tell and we learn the story of the house through the effect events have on various lives. Norah Lofts was one of my favourite authors when I was a teenager in the 60s. I am sure I must have read this trilogy then but I remembered almost nothing and I am enjoying it afresh with different eyes today.

I first read this book about fifty years ago. I bought it several times, loaning it to friends and then replacing it when it was never returned. About thirty years ago I ordered it and the other two books in the Suffolk House trilogy in library binding because I knew I could not bear to be without them. I am so happy to be able to add them now to my Kindle library! They are old, dear friends who are always with me.

Personally, I think Norah Lofts, more than any other author of historical fiction, has the knack of bring the past right into your kitchen table. I enjoy Ken Follett's books, and Edward Rutherford's books, but I think Norah Lofts' works surpass them. She has been underrated for years and I'm so delighted to see her work being rediscovered. Thank you for bringing them to us in digital format!

My mother introduced me to this book more than 40 years ago, and despite her age, "The Town House" is just as captivating as the first time I read it. If you like to learn history (I'm a history buff and the author stays true to actual events), and if you like to completely immerse yourself in a book, read "The Town House," and then run, as fast as you can, to your device and order "The House at Old Vice" and "The House at Sunset." Like me, you will read them over and over

I read all the books in this series at least 40 years ago. I've reread them time after time. Now that I can no longer read due to macular degeneration, I'm looking forward to listening to them on audible. I just wish The Lute Player by Z Oprah Lofts was on audible.

This is book two of the Suffolk trilogy. It is a series of stories about the lives of people who have lived at a resident called Old Vine, beginning with the first book, The Town House. The last of the series is The House at Sunset. The books span from the 1300s to the 1700s, with some true historical events mentioned. Each book includes several short stories told by different people whose lives were touched in some way by Old Vine. The books are easy reads that hold interest.

This continues the saga of The Town House and its inmates. Written in the same format as the first novel in the series as individual tales of various characters who come into the house they carry the story forwards giving tantalizing glimpses of old scandals and feuds. Recommended to anyone who enjoys history of everyday events and people. I am already on the third book in the trilogy "The House at Sunset"
Enjoyed this story a lot. Story progresses at a good pace with enough time and description to develop the characters but also keeps the storyline moving along so as to maintain interest. I did feel the end was too rapidly done and with disappointing detail. I actually had to reread it to make sure I didn't miss anything while blinking.
