Rogue Herries Volume 3 by Hugh Walpole

Title Information

The 18th century moves on and still Francis Herries cannot exorcise his demons. The younger generation get married: Mary to Cousin Raiseley, David to Sarah Denburn, after a fatal fight for her hand, and Deborah finally realises she must lead her own life. Mirabell arrives at Herries to bring Francis joy and pain in equal measure. Despite what she owes him can she bring herself to love him? Interspersed with the domestic drama there is much historical detail, including well-known figures from the period who shape the lives of the family. The author continues his vivid description of the unremitting weather and the stunning countryside which adds another dimension to his narrative. We become aware that it is exposure to these elements that triggers Francis’s mysterious quest and constant soul searching. ‘I tell you Mirabell, I’ve stood on Honister, where I found you my darling; I’ve stood there listening and He’s been almost in my hand’ But Mirabell has a simpler view of life and the old man’s obsession is beginning to frighten her………..
