Description:

The fourth and final volume of the Herries Chronicles, described as 'incomparably the best' in The Daily Telegraph is a love story of 'effortless brilliance' (Observer) which starts with the triumph of Judith Paris's hundredth birthday in the 1870's and then moves to the tragic disillusionment of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Set, predominantly, as before, amidst the grandeur of the lake district landscape, it tells the passionate and unforgettable story of Vanessa, Judith's Granddaughter and her n'er-do-well cousin Benjie whom she had sworn in childhood never to betray.

Sir Hugh Seymour Walpole (March 13, 1884 - June 1, 1941) was a British Novelist during the first half of the Twentieth Century. He was one of the most popular authors of his times, until his literary reputation was destroyed by Somerset Maugham.

His most famous novel is perhaps Rogue Herries, the first of four books in his Herries Chronicles series. He wrote thirty-six novels, and five volumes of short stories.
