Burnt Nortonby Caroline Sandon

1731: When his youngest son is killed in a tragic accident, Sir William Keyt, master of Norton House, buries himself in his fortune. He builds a second vast mansion on his grounds, squandering money he does not have on luxury his family does not want.

Keyt has long been blind to the desires of others. His eldest son has fallen in love with their young maidservant, Molly Johnson, a ray of light in a household dimmed by tragedy. Keyt wants Molly for himself and, driven mad with lust and jealousy, he will do anything to have her...

Caroline Sandon lives with her family at Burnt Norton in Gloucestershire, a scene of tragedy that inspired T.S. Eliot's famous quartets. When she isn't writing, she works for her own interior design company. This is her first novel.

'Captivating: an enthralling story of love and loss, jealousy, ambition, hope and despair' Joanna Lumley

This dramatic story should be turned into a television series immediately... Terrific!' Daily Mail

'An authentic portrayal of 18th century aristocratic life turned into a pacey read. Could it be the next Downton Abbey?' Country Life
