Book Description
The house itself has experienced around 43,000 days since first it rose from the mud of a late Victorian building site. It has known over a century of breakfasts, it has sat out decade upon decade of springs, of people saying, oh look, the trees are coming into bud. It has seen birth and death and a great deal of sex. Most of this it does not record; it keeps its cousel, it does not bear witness to the Sturm und Drang, to the raised voices and the tears, nor to the laughter, the exuberance, the expectations. It is merely the shell, the framework, the abiding presence that remains when all that evanescent human stuff has passed through and away. It is triumph of impervious red brick, black and white tiles, oak woodwork, stained glass lilies and acanthus. It neither knows nor cares. Created as a shrine to family life, it has remained as such, even if family life itself is a rather different construct.
