I shall not leave you, Jennifer. It is better I remain. As her hand mechanically stroked those same rosy apples, so friendly and familiar, she reflected. Yes, this simple sentence declared the crisis of her whole existance. Nothing ever again could matter to her so deelv as this decision. With it she had cut away h8k her life, and perhaps the better half. She was not by nature a dramatic woman moreover, she hadbut lately returned from the funeral of the best friend she had, and she was forty-seven years of age in this month of January I822. So-for women then thought forty-seven a vast age-she should be past drama. Quietly she sat down on the sofa, leaned forward, looking into the fire. Jennifer Herries was speaking with eager excitement, but Judith did not hear her. Tennifer was fifty-two and should also be past drama but, althogh a lazy woman, she liked sensation when it did not put herself to discomfort. Judith at that moment heard and saw nothing but the past, the past that she was irrevocably forsaking. Strange how the same patterns were for ever returning Her father had been a rogue and a vagabond, a rebel against all the order and material discipline of the proper Herries.In his earlv vears he had married Convention and of herhah had a son, late in life he had married a gisv and of herhad had a U1 J daughter in his old age, when he was over seventy. David at one end of his life, Judith at the other. In their histories again the pattern had been reeated. David of his marriage had had two l c7 sons Will the money – maker, Francis the dreamer. Will prospered even now in the City Francis was a failure, dead of his own hand. And with their children again the pattern was repeated. For Wills son wilter was triumphant near by in his house at Westaways, and Francis widow, Jennifer, and Francis children, John and Dorothy, remained, undefended, here at Uldale. It was here that she, Judith, came into the pattern. Daughter of two-vagabonds, mother…………
This volume contains Hugh Walpole’s 1932 novel, “The Fortress”. Judith Paris comes back to her home, looking to end the long-standing feud between two different sides of the Herries family. Walter, however, makes sure that all of Jennifer’s plans fail and starts construction of a mighty fortress – a gargantuan house that will cast a shadow over her land. This book would make for a worthy addition to any collection, and it is not to be missed by fans of Walpole’s seminal work. Many vintage texts such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive, and it is with this in mind that we are republishing this book now, in an affordable, high-quality, modern edition. It comes complete with a specially commissioned biography of the author.
