A Tea Drinker's Novel: Chilverton Park

By Susan Russell Thompson

Comedy & satire, General fiction, Literary fiction, Romance | Paperback, Hardback, eBook


Suppose there could be a girl in Victorian England who did not want to be married. And suppose such a girl had a gay, bachelor friend who also wished to forgo marriage. Such is the case of the unusual attachment between the confirmed bachelor about London, Sir Erskine Wald, and his childhood friend, the winsome but delicate daughter of the Earl of Chilverton, Lady Caroline Downey. Avoiding marriage in Victorian England is an admittedly tricky business. How can this unlikely pair withstand the pressures of Victorian society? With the help of Sir Erskine’s formidable mother, the improbable becomes a possibility.



Susan Russell Thompson, a lifelong lover of British fiction, found her inspiration for Chilverton Park through reading the works of Trollope, Austen and Wodehouse. She is a 1975 graduate of the UNC at Greensboro with a BFA in Painting. Many of her early years were spent painting at night while working as a graphic artist. Some of her artwork may be seen in the collection of Columbus State University and the offices of Pratt & Whitney in Columbus, Georgia. Presently, she resides in the rolling hills of North Carolina with her husband Dan and her dog, Molly. www.teadrinkers.wordpress.com
