The House in Norham Gardens by Penelope Lively

40 Norham Gardens is a vast, eccentric Victorian house whose rooms are filled with old paper, old clothes and antiquated furniture. The thoughts of people both past and present mingle together.

A carved shield she finds in the attic, brought from New Guinea years ago, causes fourteen-year-old Clare disturbing dreams.
