Dragonwyck Author:Anya Seton (From Back Cover )Miranda Wells, eighteen, had spent her entire life on her father's farm. Luxury, beauty, elegance, even love, were things that had the unreality of a storybook to her.
Then an invitation came from a distant relative. He was Nicholas Van Ryn, and his manor house on the Hudson had thiry rooms and twenty servants.
This is my favorite book of all time. Read it as a preteen and found it the most romantic historical novel I had read at that time. I always enjoy it. A lovely romance, tragic, beautifully written, makes me want to travel up the Hudson to see the old homesteads.
