Habits of the House

Fay Weldon

The year is 1899, and the Earl of Dilberne is facing serious financial concerns. With the family's Hampshire and London homes under serious threat of foreclosure, the Earl is forced to marry off his son and heir, Arthur, for money. Enter Minnie O'Brien, a Chicago meatpacking heiress recently arrived in London. She's the perfect candidate. But she has a few secrets of her own she'd love to keep hidden...Great fun for fans of Downton Abbey from the author of Chalcot Crescent (2010).
