Summary, Etc. "The opening pages read like an episode of Downton Abbey...But Jones has something more uncanny in mind, and when the party is interrupted by survivors of a nearby train wreck, the comedy of manners turns downright surreal...Jones's effervescent writing keeps the course steady-even as her characters shed their civilized veneers." — Ellen Shapiro, People magazine (four star review) A grand old manor house deep in the English countryside will open its doors to reveal the story of an unexpectedly dramatic day in the life of one eccentric, rather dysfunctional, and entirely unforgettable family. Set in the early years of the twentieth century, award-winning author Sadie Jones's The Uninvited Guests is, in the words of Jacqueline Winspear, the New York Times bestselling author of the Maisie Dobbs mysteries A Lesson in Secrets and Elegy for Eddie, "a sinister tragi-comedy of errors, in which the dark underbelly of human nature is revealed in true Shakespearean fashion."
