Thirty-eight year old Cassandra is lost, alone and grieving. Her much loved grandmother, Nell, has just died and Cassandra, her life already shaken by a tragic accident ten years ago, feels like she has lost everything known and dear to her. But an unexpected and mysterious bequest from Nell turns Cassandra's life upside down and ends up challenging everything she thought she knew about herself and her family. Inheriting a book of dark and intriguing fairytales written by Eliza Makepeace Rutherford--the Victorian authoress who disappeared mysteriously in the early twentieth century--as well as a cliff-top cottage on the other side of the world, Cassandra takes her courage in both hands to follow in the footsteps of Nell, on a quest to find out the truth about their history, their family and their past; little knowing that in the process, she will also discover a new life for herself.

Reviews for The House at Riverton (also known as The Shifting Fog ):

"A stunning must-read story that's set for stardom" -- Woman's Day magazine

"This debut page-turner... recounts the crumbling of a prominent British family as seen through the eyes of one of its servants.... Morton triumphs with a riveting plot, a touching but tense love story and a haunting ending." -- Publishers Weekly
