The House at Sunset is the third in a trilogy of novels by Norah Lofts about the inhabitants of a country house in Suffolk from the late fourteenth century to the middle of the twentieth. Covering the period from 1740 to 1956, it traces the lives of its characters through the Georgian and Victorian eras and into the modern age. Written with Lofts' customary attention to historical detail, it follows their fortunes as history moves inexorably towards the post-War period and the accession of Elizabeth II, so different from the fourteenth century when serf Martin Reed first built the House.
