In name and by birth, Celia was a Dunne. She had inherited the beautiful old family home by the Rydd Water but was she bound to live her life by the principles of her predecessors? Was there some hidden restraint that compelled her to heed the past? Celias house is a moving and poignant story of the struggle between old and young: the older generation anxious to preserve the values they have helped create while their children are determined at all costs to make lives of their own.
