Newly remarried with a headstrong stepdaughter, wealthy doctor Richard tries to mend fences with his estranged sister Angela by inviting her and her family for a week’s stay at his vacation home in the English countryside. Told through the alternating viewpoints of each of the eight characters, the week unearths secrets and misunderstandings, long-standing grudges and dashed dreams. The Red House is a bittersweet, comic novel about modern-day family life from the bestselling author of A Curious Incident of a Dog in the Night-Time (2004).
