Contemporary family saga set in the world of equestrian three-day eventing.
There s nothing like a death in the family to stir up old loves, rivalries and hatreds... In a world of winners and losers; friends and lovers; horses and dogs, Bramble, Felicity and Helena are sisters - but three very different women.
Felicity, the eldest, a journalist most comfortable in a war zone, ran away from home after an argument with her father and has never healed the rift; Helena, in the middle, an actress concerned above all with creating the perfect appearance - but how long can she keep it up? And Bramble, who wants to be a champion just like her father, Olympic horseman Edward Beaumont.
Family secrets, long buried, are unearthed as the women battle their father s enemies - and each other - to discover the real value of the Beaumont inheritance.
Perfect for curling up by a roaring log fire on a winter's day, The Inheritance is rich, warmly written and deeply satisfying. The Beaumont sisters are strong individuals but each one has their own Achilles heel which helps to drive the deftly crafted narrative as they struggle with a family crisis. Nina Bell is a real find. Mark my words, she will be on all the best-dressed bookshelves - Veronica Henry
