'An engrossing history. Moore reconstructs a series of extraordinary, often heartbreaking lives. She brings her ghosts to vivid life' Sunday Times In the 1880s a young, single and determined young woman bought Hancox - a rambling Tudor hall house deep in rural Sussex, with farm attached. For the next few decades she lived there with her new husband and his three children, apparently living an upper-class life of rural peace and tranquility. But all was not as it seemed, and disaster struck when war broke out. Charloote Moore tells the enthralling stort of the house and family; one of madness and jealousy, love and loss, heroism and tragedy. 'Some stories Moore has unearthed read like a Victorian novel... a book to harvest for its wonderful period details and its vivid characters sketches' Mail on Sunday 'Unsentimental, witty and humane, she explores the secrets and silences of family life - the madness and the illness - in a way that is utterly compelling. A marvellous book' Spectator

Hancox is the Tudor hall house in rural Sussex where the author grew up, and where she lives. It's been in the family since her ancestor Milicent Ludlow, young, single and an orphan, took it on in 1891 and began to enlarge the house and manage the farm. This title tells the story of the house and the family.
