The House at Riverton tells the story of Grace Bradley, 98, who was a maid at Riverton Manor during the 1920s. For years Grace has hidden a terrible secret. Now a film is being made about a famous incident at Riverton when a well-known poet shot himself. Grace is contacted by the director, Ursula, as the only surviving person from that night. Grace’s memories are stirred up and she decides to make a tape for her grandson, Marcus, who has been missing for some time, sharing her secret with him.
