"Rogue Herries" is the first in the series of four novels about a Cumbrian family set in the 18th century. Francis Herries is an eccentric, larger-than-life man tortured by a strong romantic streak. He uproots his entire family from Doncaster, and takes them to live in a crumbling manor-house in the wilds of Borrowdale. A violent and impetuous man, a faithless husband and a capricious father, the Borrowdale valley (his home for 40 years) and his unrequited love for gypsy Mirabell Starr are the two forces which drive him
Judith Paris, a novel by Hugh Walpole( Book )

111 editions published between 1931 and 2020 in 5 languages and held by 1,240 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

Portrait of a man with red hair : a romantic macabre by Hugh Walpole( Book )

Our hero, Harkness, a pleasant young American, feeling aimless and useless in London, travels to a beautiful Cornish seaside town to see their annual August processional dance. He quickly becomes involved, through his own gallantry, and to experience the excitement missing in his life, in a plot to rescue a lovely girl from an evil marriage to the son of the Red Haired Man (Crispin). Crispin is a short, stout eccentric, who meets Harkness in his hotel and takes a liking to him, inviting him to view his art collection in his grand home nearby, where his manservants are Japanese thugs. The rescue plot also involves local friends of the girl (with whom Harkness is now in love) and rushes to a horrifying conclusion when the plot fails, owing to a thick sea fog. Crispin, who has explained to Harkness his theory of inflicting pain to awaken compassion and empower the paingiver, who then becomes Godlike, turns out to be mad, violent and ruthless, desperate to test his theory on the plotters, who are now locked up in his tower, awaiting torture {u2013} and worse? The unexpected and violent ending surprisingly acts as a redemption for Harkness {u2013} but does he get the girl?

"The story about an evil brother who comes back to his family for a visit and the devastation he reaps on his contented London family. This novel is a study of human conflict within a conventional family of the 1930's, tested by the invasion of ideas in the person of the family's black sheep, Captain Nicholas."--Goodreads
