Wealthy Richard Walker has just died, leaving behind his country house full of rooms packed with the detritus of a lifetime. His estranged family -- bitter ex-wife Caroline, troubled teenage son Trenton, and unforgiving daughter Minna -- have arrived for their inheritance. But the Walkers are not alone.
It is 1922, and London is tense. Ex-servicemen are disillusioned, the out-of-work and the hungry are demanding change. And in South London, in a genteel Camberwell villa, a large silent house now bereft of brothers, husband and even servants, life is about to be transformed, as impoverished widow Mrs Wray and her spinster daughter, Frances, are obliged to take in lodgers.
Plus new books from Anne Rice, Jan Karon, David Mitchell, Ian McEwan....

Next Chapter Clubs allow five to eight people with intellectual or development disabilities the chance to become members of a book club designed to meet their needs, regardless of reading ability. Each NCBC will offer individuals the opportunity to gather weekly to read and learn together as they discuss books and make friends in a relaxed, community setting.
