"Rogue Herries tells the story of the larger than life Francis Herries who uproots his family from Yorkshire and brings them to live in Borrowdale where their life is as dramatic as the landscape surrounding them. Proud, violent and impetuous, he despises his first wife, sells his mistress at a county fair and forms a great love for the teenage gypsy Mirabell Starr. Alongside this turbulent story runs that of his son David, with enemies of his own, and that of his gentle daughter Deborah, with placid dreams that will not be realised in her father's house."--Page 4 of cover

Judith Paris, a novel by Hugh Walpole( Book )

55 editions published between 1931 and 2008 in 4 languages and held by 1,034 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Covering the years 1771 to 1822 and set partly in Revolutionary Paris, and partly in romantic Cumbria, Judith Paris is the story of the two very different men who love Walpole's most delightful heroine. Daughter of Francis Herries and Mirabell Starr, Judith was described on publication as "the most delightful of Walpole's heroines." As impetuous, impulsive and passionate as her father, she is torn between her ambitions and her love of the wild beauty of the Lakes. Set partly in Paris during the French Revolution, and partly in the unforgettably romantic Cumbrian hamlet of Watendlath, it is the story of the two very different men who love her, and is both comic and moving, by turns tragic and triumphant. The second of the Herries Chronicles

It's a skilful build-up of atmosphere and suspense

This 1921 novel, praised for Walpole's distinctively vivid characters and London setting, was greeted as a departure for the popular writer: part satire, part fairy-tale. Young Henry Trenchard and his sister Millicent are ready to confront a world torn by rapid change and defined by conflicts with an older generation, represented by Sir Charles Duncombe
