Family gatherings aren’t exactly the Harringtons’ strong point. Even the impending death of the family’s bitter patriarch, Matthew, isn’t enough to get the band of misfits to drop their grievances for five minutes. Of course, the elder hasn’t helped matters by leaving a huge sum of money to his daughter Emily – and by extension, his rarely-seen granddaughter Alexandra – whose name hasn’t been permitted to even be uttered in the presence of the Harringtons in decades. Despite coming from the same walk of life, even during a period of mourning the Harringtons always find a way to have a dramatic fall out, whether that’s down to one of them bringing shame to the family name by running off with a stableboy or another barely hiding their infidelities. It’s the latter of which has always been a point of contention for Marcus though, perhaps the most kind-hearted of the bunch. To him, his cousin Charles has no idea how stupid he is to treat his wife – of necessity rather than desire – Sophy, like a mere commoner. Marcus has always had a love for her, a desire which seems to always show itself in momentary flashes of affection between the two. Still, Charles is more concerned with chasing other lovers rather than being a faithful, or even kind, husband to his wife. At least, when he’s not completely obsessed with the inheritance he believes he’s entitled to. With tensions already running high between the two family members, the strained relationship reaches a boiling point when the black sheep of the family, Alexandra, re-appears and threatens to derail the warped status quo most of the family yearn for a return to. Enjoy this exciting, entertaining, and suspenseful historical novel that will keep you hooked from start to finish.
