Overview

The Historical House is a unique trilogy of novels by three highly regarded authors. Each novel charts the life and times of the house at 6 Chelsea Walk, London, and the girls who lived there through three important periods of history. Synopsis On an extended visit to her cousins in London, Lizzie's passion for plants and trees is fuelled by visits to the newly opened Kew Gardens. Like her elder cousin, who wants to defy her middle-class upbringing and become a nurse, Lizzie has ambition and the will to go against the conventions of her Victorian peers. She wants to be a gardener, and the first step towards her dream is to plant a walnut in the garden of 6 Chelsea Walk.
