During World War II, an American travels to Britain to sell an old house near London that belongs to his family. However, he meets Leslie Trimble who lives in the house and who is resolutely against the sale. While they spend the night in an air-raid shelter she tells him the story of the building from its construction in 1804 until the present. Written by
