Full description for A House Unlocked
In A House Unlocked, Penelope Lively takes us on a journey of her familial country house in England that her grandparents bought in 1923. As her narrative shifts from room, object to object, she paints a moving portrait of an era of rapid change and of the family that changed with the times. As she charts the course of the domestic tensions of class and comunity among her relatives, she brings to life the effects of the horrors of the Russian Revolution and the Holocaust through portraits of the refugees who came to live with them. A fascinating, intimate social history of its times, A House Unlocked is an eloquent meditation on place and time, memory and history, and above all a tribute to the meaning of home.
