Critic's chart: top country house books

Derwent May, who writes on nature, the countryside and literature for the London Times, named a "critic's chart" of top country house books.

One title from the list:
A House Unlocked by Penelope Lively

In an Edwardian house once owned by her grandmother, Lively finds objects that illuminate life then and now.
Read about the book that topped May's chart.
