Thrumpton Hall: A Memoir of Life in My Fathers House by Miranda Seymour

Dear Thrumpton, how I miss you tonight, wrote twenty-one-year-old George Seymour in 1944. But the object of his affection was not a young woman but a house-ownership of which was then a distant dream. But he did eventually acquire Thrumpton, a beautiful country house in Nottinghamshire, and it was in this idyllic home that Miranda Seymour was raised. Her upbringing was far from idyllic, however, as life revolved around her fathers capriciousness. The house took priority and everything else was secondary, even his wife. Until, that is, the day when George Seymour, already in his golden years, took to wearing black leather and riding powerful motorbikes around the countryside in the company of a young male friend. Had he taken leave of his senses? Or had he finally found them? And how did this sea change affect his wife and daughter?Both biography and family memoir, this sometimes hilarious, sometimes heart-wrenching story-told in a voice as unforgettable as it is moving-is a riveting and ultimately shocking portrait of desire and the devastating consequences of misplaced love.
