Nicholas comes to England to sell the manor and lands, and go back to America. However, the one person keeping the property afloat is a beautiful widow of his cousin (of course).
The lands are not very profitable and Nicholas decides to improve things so he can sell at a higher price. Because of his abrupt manner (the English consider him a barbarian), he decides to wed the widow to help him persuade the tenants to grow a different crop (the wheat market is depressed). They marry a week after he arrives (?).
It all goes downhill from there. Nicholas realizes that his aunt would know the true circumstances of his birth, but he does not talk to her! He wanders around asking other people.
I have tossed maybe 5 books away without finishing them during my 60+ years. This is one of them! I hate to "give" this story one star. Gosh awful!
Despite the Editorial review, I enjoyed this book; it's not your average everyday love story!
Be sure to read The Maverick. It's a continuation of some of the characters introduced in The Inheritance.
