    PDF READ Ashenden 35 A decidedly different kind of book and I liked it a lot Copied down several uotes that I wanted to remember I do wish I had made notes about the various people who were part of the house's history as there were so many connections from period to period One of the things I liked most was the way each chapter began with a paragraph that almost felt like it was from the house's point of view or maybe from the pov of history Those

REVIEW Ô Ashenden READ ó GARAKAMI.CO ´ Elizabeth Wilhide Or their own ends Each chapter is skillfully woven into the others so that the story lines of the upstairs and downstairs characters and their relatives and descendants intertwine to make a rich tapestry A beautifully written novel full of humor heart and poignancy Ashenden is an evocative portrait of a house that becomes a character as compelling as the people who inhabit. Ashenden A Novel by Elizabeth WilhideWhen Downton Abbey finished its third season I needed that English Manor fix and I found Ashenden a new book by Elizabeth Wilhide This is her first novel though she is the author of than twenty books on interior design and architecture And her love of those subjects shines in this book where the main character is an old manor Yes a manor home is the main character So while Downton Abbey might focus on the upstairs downstairs human life Ashenden focuses on how life connected to the manorEach chapter in the book is a different time period in Ashenden s life So we follow from the manor home s infancy as the first building materials arrive and are put into place to the present as it has aged sometimes gracefully but other times not so gracefully As I moved through the book I began to really care for Ashenden and would keep on hoping that it would make it through another owner or event in fine shape And the manor home did bloom and wilt as its presence touched various owners servants or nearby townsmen And what is interesting is that certain characters and their families will skip in and out of the various stories through the years either as a minor character or the focus character of the specific chapterThe book starts in 2010 with siblings Charlie and Roz suddenly finding themselves owners by inheritance of the huge old and now neglected Ashenden Park They have come to the manor to decide its fate and end up arguing over whether to sell it or keep it Like any other grand old home the upkeep is astronomical and worse the National Trust can t afford to take it over When Roz discovers a large stash of the manor s history in their uncle s old desk the real story begins We jump to 1775 and James Woods an accomplished Yorkshire architect has been hired to build a fine Palladian stone manor in the countryside by Sir Frederick More an impoverished aristocrat Money is always tight but Woods doesn t skimp on the details or on the materials including the beautiful yellow bath stone that will make up the skin of the manor From there we follow Ashenden into 1796 with the More family problems coming to a crisis and then 1844 with a new family the Henderson s trying to breath new life into an incomplete Ashenden The family and the manor blossom until with another chapter the year 1889 brings servant problems We then jump to 1909 and while the manor has passed into a new generation of Henderson s money is again the problem due to aristocratic style gambling The years keep coming and the manor takes on new forms 1916 and a World War I officer hospital 1929 and the roaring 20 s party with a new owner 1938 and the bank crashes 1946 and World War II 1951 brings the Lyells as new owners 1966 and former glory 1976 era of protests and then back to 2010 with Charlie and Roz continuing to wonder if this is the last chance for a very old and once again neglected manorThe description of the manor starts each chapter and gives a hint to the subject of that year As an example the description at the start of the 1951 chapter describes how many of the great homes are too expensive to manage and so are ultimately disappearing There are many ways of killing a house You can set fire to it you can flood it you can tear it down to get your hands on the land where it stands Or you can pulverize it with bombs which is how two million homes have been lost in the blitz These are uick methods Slower methods work just as well in the long term and reuire absolutely no effort Nothing that s all you have to do Let nature take its course It will Nature is strong enough to topple stone given time All around the country the great houses are dying Four or five a week and their deaths are slow and lingering The house reaches it s zenith in 1966 and the manor home is described as follows Lavender clings to laundered sheets folded on the cedar shelves of the linen closet Vases of velvety roses sit on tables polished with beeswax On summer evenings the sweet perfume of night scented stocks drifts through open windows blended with the astringency of cut grass the sharp acid twist of lemon in a gin and tonic From the kitchen com warm savory aromas of bread coffee and roast chicken which mingle with a faint hint of wood smoke and damp dog Contentment order and well being the house smells of it Breathes it in Inhales and exhales Lastly it is the winter of 2010 and Reggie the last and longest owner of the manor knows it is time for her to leave this world She recognizes the connection of past lives to Ashenden including herself If these are ghosts they are friendly ones who slip past in the thin cold air and leave no disturbance or sadness behind It s the gentlest form of haunting really a smile fading from a face or a forgotten tune playing in the next room Ghosts are only to be expected when the house contains so much time So much of your own life too over half a century The house is
