Wishlist Wednesday: The House, A. O'Connor

Wishlist Wednesday is a weeklies hosted by Pen to Paper. As I have enough wishes when it comes to books I decided to join this weekly and tell you about them. I am obviously curious about the books on your wishlist too so feel free to leave a message.

The House A.O'Connor cover
1840's-When Lord Edward Armstrong builds the house for his bride, Anna, the family is at the climax of its power. But its world is threatened when no heir is born. Anna could restore their fortunes but it would mean the ultimate betrayal. Then the great famine grips the country.

1910's- Clara finds life as Lady of the manor is not what she expected when she married Pierce Armstrong. As the first world war rages, she finds solace in artist Johnny Seymour's decadent circle. Then the war of independence erupts and Clara is caught between two men, deceit and revenge.

Present Day- When Kate Fallon sees the house it is love at first sight. She and her tycoon husband buy it and hire the last Armstrong owner, architect Nico, to oversee it's restoration.

As Kate'd fascination with the house grows, she and Nico begin to uncover its history and the fates of its occupants in centuries past. But then, as her husband's business empire faces ruin, Kate realizes she is in danger of losing everything.
I love books that cover various periods that all connect in the end. This book gave me a Manderley feeling immediately and as I love Rebecca I new I had to add this book to my shelves. I am very curious because the book has just been released and there are not many reviews on it but it looks very good.
