“Historical House Rules!”
I've only read Andie's Moon and it is the best book EVER! I can't wait to read the rest!You'll have to read it yourself because it is AMAZING!
“The premise of Usborne's Historical House series is a delightful one: a single house in Chelsea forms the backdrop for a set of stories spanning 200 years. Written by three acclaimed authors, each focuses on an atmospheric period. These are engaging novels, immaculately researched and quietly informative. They can be read in any order; those who read them all will be thrilled by the occasional links that draw characters together across generations.”
