“I found myself addicted to Rutherford Park, much as I was to Downton Abbey. I reveled in delicious detail about life in a great country estate, all the while waiting to learn: would Octavia’s family survive or would they be torn apart by the forces converging on them: personal failings, society’s excesses, and Europe’s Great War?”Margaret Wurtele, author of The Golden Hour

“Beautiful, melancholy and richly detailed, Rutherford Park elegantly depicts the lives within an English country house on the cusp of a new age. Elizabeth Cooke evokes classic authors like Vita Sackville West and Frances Hodgson Burnett.”Natasha Solomons, author of The House at Tyneford

“Reminiscent of Catherine Cookson, a heart-aching story of an old world order and class divides set against Edwardian England.”Judith Kinghorn, author of The Last Summer

“With its vivid descriptions and memorable characters, Rutherford Park drew me in from the first page. Richly textured with historical details, the novel captures perfectly the pre-World War I mood and atmosphere of the grand Yorkshire house and the lives of those who inhabit it. The final page left me thoroughly satisfied, yet wishing for more. Thank you, Elizabeth Cooke, for a wonderful story and the promise of another.”Kelly Jones, author of The Woman Who Heard Color
