Pargeters: a historical novel of seventeenth-century England

Lofts, Norah, 1904-1983; Griffin, Gordon; McKenzie, Nicolette

Pargeting is a highly skilled trade. And Pargeters is the name given to the Suffolk home of John Mercer in honour of Adam Woodley, the craftsman who had decorated it so lovingly. Over two generations, and throughout the turbulent years of the Civil War, Pargeters comes to stand as a symbol of unity for a household divided by conflicting political loyalties and abandoned by its menfolk. And it is the mistress of Pargeters, Sarah Woodley-Mercer - a woman of unflinching courage and quiet strength - who holds the small household together in this troubled time, battling against all odds to secure the home she loves and will not readily give up
