Another Heartbeat in the House
by Kate Beaufoy

Two women living a hundred years apart. One home that binds them together.

When Edie Chadwick travels to Ireland to close up her uncle’s lakeside lodge, it’s as much to escape the burden of guilt she’s carrying as to break loose from the smart set of 1930’s London.

The old house is full of memories – not just her own, but those of a woman whose story has been left to gather dust in a chest in the attic: a handwritten memoir inscribed with an elegant signature . . . Eliza Drury

As she turns the pages of the manuscript, Edie uncovers secrets she could never have imagined: an exciting tale of ambition, hardship, love and tragedy – a story that has waited a lifetime to be told. . .

'A delightful story, rich, engrossing and vividly told' Rachel Hore

‘A compelling, atmospheric story brimming with period detail about two feisty, independent heroines who will steal your heart’ Cathy Kelly

'With a marvellously evocative setting, strong and believable lead characters and a pacey plot, Another Heartbeat in the House is a thoroughly compelling love story' Liz Trenow
Reviews

[Beaufoy's] keen ear for dialogue echoes with the wit of Austen.

 (Irish Independent)

A compelling, atmospheric story brimming with period detail about two feisty, independent heroines who will steal your heart.
 (Cathy Kelly)

A delightful story, rich, engrossing and vividly told
 (Rachel Hore)

An enchanting tale of two women across the centuries, and their love for the same house . . . This is a tale to sweep you back into Irish history, full of poetry and humour
 (Kate Lord Brown)

Beaufoy convincingly channels voices from the 1930s and 1840s to create a hugely enjoyable book, perfect for a lazy summer afternoon.

 (Irish Times)

Everything is alive in Kate Beaufoy's new novel: the slang of a former era rings authentically, a house has a personality, a dog has a voice. If you're looking for an absorbing, delicious well-told tale in which to lose yourself, this is it.
 (Evening Herald)

Lightness of touch with wonderful scene-setting, a brace of brave and independent female characters who nest in your imagination and refuse be evicted - and William Thackeray to boot... Settle in and enjoy.
 (Deirdre Purcell)

Sweeps you away to an Ireland of the past and keeps you utterly enthralled.
 (Marian Keyes)

With a marvellously evocative setting, strong and believable lead characters and a pacey plot, Another Heartbeat in the House is a great read.
