House of Trelawney: A novel

We rated this book:


House of Trelawney by Hannah Rothschild introduces you to a hilariously dysfunctional family of old fortune and current misfortune. The story of three Trelawney women, Blaze, Jane, and Anastasia, is set against the curious backdrop of the Trelawney estate. Now in immense disrepair, Rothschild does a wonderful job weaving the ornate past of Trelawney into the complicated now. The eccentric family members interact with the space on their own unique terms, and every Trelawney player gets their moment in the story. The overall affect is a charmingly discordant family coping with their resplendent past and wholly muddled future. Rothschild effectively weaves an engaging tale of redemption and family bonds that comes off as both utterly untranslatable, but emotionally connective to the reader at the same time. It is a delightful escape and will leave you mentally roaming the halls of the house of Trelawney long after the last page has turned.
