Uppark was a beautiful late 17th century house containing works of art collected on the Grand Tour. Its splendour was destroyed in August 1989 when the house caught fire and within hours was reduced to a gutted ruin. The National Trust faced the decision of what to do with the house and its contents, a high proportion of which had been rescued while the fire was fought. After great debate the house was saved and its contents repaired in an unprecedented five year programme of restoration. This book rells the story of the decision to restore the property and of the craftsmen and women brought together to return the house to its former splendour.

It is full of great photos and interesting information about the restoration. It is informative and entertaining for any person who loves the great houses.

This is a book I cherish. I reread it about once a year and each time come away struck by the miracle that is the restoration of this fine historic home.

Yes, we all know that Uppark suffered a disastrous fire. Just a few years previously the house likely would have been demolished. But Uppark was fortunate in the timing of the disaster. A new sensibility had risen. That, and an insurance policy that would only allow for a restoration.

The book details the minute-by-minute horror of the unfolding disaster. As well the incredible effort to save every bit of the house, including scraps of ancient wallpaper torn from the walls as the flames progressed. To see a Before image of resplendent chandelier, for example, then the same chandelier smashed to a million bits, and then the After of the chandelier miraculously recreated and hanging once again as if nothing happened, well, it takes your breath away. And there are many such miracles with this house.

I cannot think of how the book could be improved, and that is something I rarely think. There are floor plans. There are plenty of Before, During, and resplendent After images. There are the human stories, too. And all beautifully told.

This is a great book. It makes my heart sing.
