The Inheritance Summary
The Chandler family lead a charmed life. In their ravishing country estate, surrounded by servants, they cling to the trappings of aristocracy and privilege. Eighteen-year-old Alice is marrying the heir to another great house. Her cleverer sister Eve has won a place at Oxford University. All is picture perfect. They are happy, revered and very, very rich. But all is not what it seems. Alice is secretly in love with a fatally attractive, but wholly unsuitable admirer, her father has been philandering for years and Eve's promising academic future is about to be brutally curtailed. The world these people inhabit will be shaken to its core. Wonderfully sympathetic, funny and beguiling, THE INHERITANCE introduces a family who'd rather keep up appearances than face the truth. Intensely human and brilliantly drawn, they will shock, delight and utterly seduce you.
