The Hundred-Year House

By Rebecca Makkai

Email This Page

On the eve of the millennium, Grace Devohr, daughter Zee, and a cast of characters gather at Laurelfield – their estate with a troubled history and a reputed unsavoury spirit.

As we move back in time from 1999 to 1900, strange secrets involving a former artist’s colony, a ‘maybe’ ghost, and questions of identity – reveal themselves through quick prose and lively characters.

Both a paean to artists and a play-of-sorts on a gothic story, the genre is hard to pinpoint and, for this reason alone, Makkai earns her well-deserved acclaim.

Perfect for:

  • Lovers of country-estate-set fiction.
  • Anyone interested in a house with a dark past.
  • Readers of historical fiction with an authentic structure.
