The House at Riverton by Kate Morton
Normally, shifts in time in a book will drive me crazy, however, Kate Morton manages to always make this process work for me.
The reader is introduced to Dr. Grace Bradley, an archaeologist, spending the remainder of her years in a nursing home. She has been contacted by movie producers who want her opinion of their sets for a movie they are making set at Riverton, a manor house where Grace had worked as a housemaid when she was very young. The sets bring memories flooding back to Grace telling the story of the Hampton sisters and the tragedies that befell the residents of Riverton.
As the story progresses we see Grace battling with her memories as well as trying to find a way to reveal the secrets of her life before her end.
One of my favorite authors with a great story.
