I wouldn’t say that this is a historical fiction book. Instead, it looks like a 19th century fiction with some hints of social and love comedy, as the books written in the Edwardian era.

The plot takes place at Sterne, a typical old British manor house in the countryside. During a diner party in honor of Emerald Torrington, daughter of the matriarch Charlotte Torrignton and his husband Edward, an extraordinary event happens.

Edward is forced to leave the house in order to try to save their home.

While this party a train crash happens and the survivors need to be shelter and are then moved to Sterne, the so-called uninvited guests.

A chock between different social classes takes place in the heart of Torrignton’s family. It reminds in some way one of the novels based on Downton Abbey series.

This author seems to have some promising and interesting readings, such as The Outcast and Small Wars. To be checked.
