    DescriptionSet on the eve of World War II in a resort on the east coast of England, The Rich House follows the love affairs of six young people and their intertwined adorations. Encircling their lives is Archibald Early, a once-famous actor, his housekeeper and his grandson Ted. These three tip the balance, and relationships shift, but even war cannot halt the passions of the young.

    Review quote
    "It ought not to be forgotten that Miss Gibbons is a poet as well as a novelist... She sees idiosyncrasy in nature and humanity, and makes both live" Observer "Stella Gibbons is the Jane Austen of the 20th century" -- Lynn Truss
