9780711228924: Vanessa (Herries Chronicles)

The fourth and final volume of the Herries Chronicles, described as 'incomparably the best' in The Daily Telegraph is a love story of 'effortless brilliance' (Observer) which starts with the triumph of Judith Paris's hundredth birthday in the 1870's and then moves to the tragic disillusionment of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Set, predominantly, as before, amidst the grandeur of the lake district landscape, it tells the passionate and unforgettable story of Vanessa, Judith's Granddaughter and her n'er-do-well cousin Benjie whom she had sworn in childhood never to betray.

From the Back Cover:


The fourth and final volume of The Herries Chronicle, which recounts the dramatic fortunes of one family from the eighteenth to the early twentieth century, in a magnificent Lake District setting. Here is fiction in glorious, sweeping measure, set against wild and beautiful scenery and crowded with fairs, balls, weddings, duels, witches, abductions, murder and romance.

Vanessa opens with the triumph of Judith Paris's hundredth birthday in the 1870s and moves through tragic disillusionment to the early twentieth century. Set predominantly amidst the grandeur of the Lake District landscape, it tells the passionate and unforgettable story of Vanessa, Judith's granddaughter and her ne'er-do-well cousin Benjie, whom she had sworn in childhood never to betray.

About the Author:

Hugh Walpole was one of the most widely admired novelists of the first half of the twentieth century, and the hugely successful Herries Chronicles made him a rich man. Popular amongst, and generous to, other writers, he was knighted in 1937 and died in 1941.Eric Robson was born in southern Scotland and has lived most of his life in Cumbria. For the last 15 years he has had a small farm in the southern Lake District where he keeps sheep. A broadcaster and television documentary maker, he got to know Alfred Wainwright uncommonly well while filming with him in the 1980s. He was executive producer of Granada's Wainwright Country and consultant for the BBC's Wainwright Walks series. He is best known as the presenter of Radio 4's Gardener's Question Time, where he sees his job as keeping the panellists from 'straying into horticultural Latin'.To visit Eric's Striding Edge website click here
