by Fay Weldon | Read by Katherine Kellgren

It’s 1899, and the world is changing. The most immediately noticeable change for the Earl of Dilberne is that his Jewish solicitor is brazen enough to barge in unannounced before breakfast and doesn’t even feel the need to come in through the servants’ entrance. With a tony accent and wry humor, Katherine Kellgren narrates this story of an upper-class family on the verge of losing the life its members have always known. Kellgren differentiates well between family members, servants, and the young American woman whose fortune may very well save the Dilberne estate. Written by the author of “Upstairs, Downstairs,” HABITS OF THE HOUSE will delight fans of “Downton Abbey” and those who enjoy dry wit coupled with excellent narration.
