Kate Morton's The House at Riverton
Man, did I enjoy this book! It's one of those great flashback to an English manor house in the 1920s sort of stories, when a very old woman who served as a maid in the house is contacted by a filmmaker who wants to make a movie about a tragic death that happened there. Of course really it's about the maid and the family and all their wonderful dramas. But, you know, literary. A.
