Summer 1924: On the eve of a glittering society party, by the lake of a grand English country house, a young poet takes his life. The only witnesses, sisters Hannah and Emmeline Hartford, will never speak to each other again.

Winter 1999: Grace Bradley, 98, one-time housemaid of Riverton Manor, is visited by a young director making a film about the poet's suicide. Ghosts awaken and memories, long consigned to the dark reaches of Grace's mind, begin to sneak back through the cracks. A shocking secret threatens to emerge; something history has forgotten but Grace never could.

Set as the war-shattered Edwardian summer surrenders to the decadent 20s, The Shifting Fog is a thrilling mystery and a compelling love story.

An alternate title for this novel is The House at Riverton.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cindy | 2/5/2014

    " It was kind of like reading Downton Abbey, same time period, from the musings of a 'downstairs' servant...the intertwinings of the family...over the course of many years, and like the other Kate Morton...a hidden secret, that changes things. Clean, fun characters, interesting history, time jumps back and forth. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joanna (J.F.Penn) | 1/20/2014

    " An excellent historical mystery but I found that I had already guessed most of what was happening so it wasn't very mysterious. Lovely language though, but quite tragic. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Audrey | 1/19/2014

    " good and fun with some downton abbey similarities but I didn't like as much as the forgotten garden. seems like her writing is getting better with subsequent books. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mom | 1/15/2014

    " Morton is so good at dropping hints as to what may transpire later in the story. Love her writing! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pattie | 1/11/2014

    " The ending...well, like my friend Jill says, it asks too much. Otherwise, it was an engaging, beautiful read. "

    " Check out my new Book Review Haiku on the blog! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Stephanie Hewitt | 12/24/2013

    " I enjoy this author very much. This book however i think is my least favorite of hers. I didn't like the main characters and guessed the end. I still like Kate Morton but this one is lower on the list. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Denyce | 12/20/2013

    " It was good. Suspenseful and the characters were vivid. I would recommend it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Leslie | 12/12/2013

    " I loved it almost as much as the forgotten garden. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Katie Shipley | 12/11/2013

    " loved it! but so sad "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Hollyduck | 10/15/2013

    " I found this book boring, and not as captivating as previous book The Secret Garden which I really enjoyed. I found this book as good at The Distant Hours.. I dont want to continue and finish it. Hence one star. Very disappointed as i had read other reviews that said this book was really good. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Charif | 10/7/2013

    " This book felt like I was reading Downton Abbey mixed with Atonement...did anyone else feel that way? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joyce | 8/20/2013

    " I love historical fiction so I really enjoyed the author's descriptive work in this novel. But because of that, it was a bit tedious in places. Good plot line with quite a twist at the end. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elsie | 7/29/2013

    " Well written story. Interesting blend of present and past in the narrative. Well developed characters. "

    " Started slow, but became engrossed quickly. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Frs824 | 12/24/2012

    " Me quede con algunas preguntas sin respuestas. En general me mantuvo entretenida el poco tiempo que me tomo leer el libro. Con deseo de saber que ocurre al final pero con mucha pena de que la historia se acabe. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Diane | 12/15/2012

    " Masterful and brilliant story. She never fails to bring her characters alive. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elin | 12/14/2012

    " Downton Abbey with a mystery woven in! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Wendy Buchheit | 6/8/2012

    " Took a really long time to get involved in this one for me. I loved some of her other works, like The Secret Keeper. This one was just not as fast paced. Still...she is very talented at telling a story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Yvette Adams | 3/9/2012

    " I loved this! It's my second Kate Morton and I loved The Distant Hours too, so I guess I'm a fan! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shawna | 2/11/2012

    " Pretty good. Sucked me into the story but had an anticlimactic ending. Great for entertainment reading but not if you are looking to expand your mind. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kimberly | 10/12/2011

    " Extremely slow start, but ok if you manage to make it half way through. Has a surprise ending. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amy Loesch | 6/16/2011

    " This story was a great addition to her other works I have already enjoyed. Through the heartbreak of loss, and the fact that in a sense it is a memoir, thus book was so hard to put down! I cannot wait for her next book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jessica | 6/2/2011

    " I liked this book even better than the Forgotten Garden, but it did remind me very strongly of both Atonement and The Blind Assassin. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marsha | 6/1/2011

    " This book was good. It bounces back and forth between an old lady and her memories. Sad though. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sherry | 5/31/2011

    " Great Gothic read with good mystery and a surprise ending. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sue | 5/27/2011

    " The Forgotten Garden was better, but this is written in the same vein.
    "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Suzanne | 5/24/2011

    " I loved The Secret Garden and was really looking forward to this book, however, it was not nearly as compelling as The Secret Garden and I was disappointed. The writing is good but the characters were uninteresting to me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kimberly | 5/23/2011

    " I enjoyed the many connections that could be made with the people throughout the book, and the ongoing story between present time and past time. The author wrote in such a way that I could see what the rooms, gowns, and people looked like in the early 1900's. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Corey | 5/21/2011

    " Another wonderful book by Morton. Though it was her first, it was the last I got my hands on. Her settings and characters, much the same. Her ability to craft a spellbinding tale-also unchanged. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kim | 5/21/2011

    " Glad I was bored at the airport or I never would have discovered this wonderful book! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jenni | 5/20/2011

    " This book was a page-turner, and I love the cover. However, it went on for a bit too long, had too many irrelevant details, and the ending was depressing in the extreme and implausible. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joyce | 5/20/2011

    " I thought it was an excellent read. "
