Inheritance is the first in a brand new gothic trilogy from Sunday Times bestselling author Nora Roberts-a tale of tragedies, loves found and lost, and a family haunted for generations.
1806. Astrid Poole is murdered on her wedding day. Her last words - a promise to her husband never to leave him...
After finding her fiance in a compromising position with her cousin, Sonya MacTavish needs an escape. When a lawyer turns up on her doorstep out of the blue with news that she has inherited a beautiful Victorian house, Sonya thinks maybe this is just the change of scene she needs.
The house - nicknamed Lost Bride manor - is beautiful, the setting idyllic and the local town offers Sonya the smalltown comforts she craves after life in a big city. So what if there are sometimes shadows in the windows, objects move of their own accord and music starts playing out of nowhere. Sonya can live with the house being a little haunted.
But things soon start to take a darker turn and it becomes clear that Sonya has inherited far more than a house. She has inherited a centuries-old curse, and a puzzle she must solve if there is any hope of breaking it...
Exciting launch for Roberts' new trilogy, which promises to explore the mystical power of women to do both good and evil. - Kirkus Reviews
