Synopsis:

The Keepers of the House is a novel of immense power that builds slowly, in layers, to an overarching realization both terrible and satisfying. It is the story of William Howland and Margaret Carmichael and their love for each other, told by William's granddaughter, Abigail. Seven generations of Howland family lore are handed down to Abigail by her grandfather, whose own story, however, he does not fully reveal to her. When searing information about William comes to light after his death, Abigail must face the fury and judgment of the entire county. Abandoned, isolated, and yet exhilarated, she heeds the gaze of her ancestors and with incisiveness bordering on madness acts to keep the Howland legacy intact.


Review:

"...the most popular of Shirley Ann Gray's six novels ; it is both a psychological thriller and a novel of family manners."

Washington Post Book World, 01/21/1996
