This volume contains Hugh Walpole's 1932 novel, "e;The Fortress"e;. Judith Paris comes back to her home, looking to end the long-standing feud between two different sides of the Herries family. Walter, however, makes sure that all of Jennifer's plans fail and starts construction of a mighty fortress - a gargantuan house that will cast a shadow over her land. This book would make for a worthy addition to any collection, and it is not to be missed by fans of Walpole's seminal work. Many vintage texts such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive, and it is with this in mind that we are republishing this book now, in an affordable, high-quality, modern edition. It comes complete with a specially commissioned biography of the author.
