Product Details


*A USA Today New & Noteworthy Pick*
“The perfect mid-winter read, especially if you’re a Downton Abbey fan….This novel spans decades, and includes a great British manor house and characters….Whether you’re already a fan or a newcomer, this story will capture your mind and heart.”—Washington Independent Review of Books

“Solomon’s reliably lush prose holds its own.”—Cleveland Plain Dealer

“Part East of Eden, part Far From the Madding CrowdThe Song of Hartgrove Hall finds Solomons hitting perfect pitch in this symphony—sometimes sweet, sometimes bitter, always entrancing—of life.”—Richmond Times-Dispatch

“Packed with beautiful writing and marvelously conceived characters, The Song of Hartgrove Hall moves effortlessly between the threadbare riches of England’s postwar country house society and the discordant ambitions of modern life, all bound together by a timeless love story that will break you and heal you. Natasha Solomons is a writer after my own heart.”—Beatriz Williams, author of A Hundred Summers and The Secret Life of Violet Grant

“A novel of family obligations, love, betrayal, grief, joy, and musical talent that fans of Downton Abbey and Kate Morton will enjoy.”—The Marion Star

“Descriptions of the verdant British countryside, the grandeur of the manse, and Fox and Edie’s devotion combine in a novel as engaging as Downton Abbey and as literary as a Brontë work.”—ShelfAwareness

“Devotees of television’s Downton Abbey will be drawn in by this novel’s historical detail and emotional story line.”—Library Journal

“Rarely does a novel capture both my heart and mind, but Natasha Solomon’s new novel gripped me from the first chapter.  Written in exquisite and razor sharp prose, The Song of Hartgrove Hall explores the bonds of family, the power of music, and the very nature of what it means to leave behind a legacy.  I cannot recommend this novel strongly enough.  It read like music itself and its beautiful and haunting notes lingered long after I finished the last page.”—Alyson Richman, internationally bestselling author of The Lost Wife and The Garden of Letters

“A delightful, moving, utterly believable family saga.”—The Times (UK)

“Natasha Solomons crafts a symphony of words in this luminous novel of a young musician on the verge of great passion. From the very beginning, I was swept away in the music of the story. Brimming with the intertwined melodies of love, loss, and regained joy, The Song of Hartgrove Hall soars.”—Jessica Brockmole, author of Letters from Skye
