Summary (From the publisher):

China Court is the tale of the hours and days of an English country house and the five generations of the Quinn family who have inhabited it. It is a story of today in which the past is always present, and the events of the moment are enriched by the memories of yesterday. Tracy Quinn, daughter of a screen-star mother, raised on film lots around the world, had just returned to her adored family home, China Court. But her grandmother's recent death has set off a chain of events that threatens Tracy's future and the very existence of China Court. As Tracy struggles to save the old house, we meet the ancestors who have created it: the profligate, faithless Jared; Elizas, the embittered spinster; and Ripsie, an outcast orphan who rose to become the family's powerful matriarch.
