On a snowy winter's evening, Christopher Ulwing returns to his home, known as The New House for the last thirty years. Settled between the Buda hills and the plains of Pest, on the banks of the Danube, the suburb of Leopold has an abandoned feel, but Christopher has been given the task of restoring the castle, to the chagrin of its current resident, his son, John Hubert. At least little Anne is happy to see him and through her constant questioning, Christopher if forced to dwell on the past as he undertakes the renovation over several years. But strife is on the horizon, with revolution, the breakup of the Hungarian Kingdom and the formation of a new republic. - Summary by Lynne Thompson
