Book Description

4 Dec 2008
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.

Product Description


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)

[A] dramatic family saga starring the warring Beaumont sisters (In Style)

Heartwarming, beautifully written and thoroughly enjoyable (Sun)

The characters are well-rounded, the pace is brisk and the storyline conceals plenty of surprises (Irish Examiner)

5.0 out of 5 stars "The Inheritance" - worth every penny! 3 Dec 2008
A gripping family saga that draws the reader into deeper and darker territory; a surprisingly rich and stimulating novel set against an equestrian backdrop; an exploration of sibling dynamics, marital loyalties and the eternal dilemmas of parents and children - in short "The Inheritance" is a fantastic "horsey book" for grown-ups!

5.0 out of 5 stars Page turner 3 Dec 2008
I was thoroughly gripped by this story about three sisters all coming to terms with the death of their father and the financial and emotional aftermath. I enjoyed all the detail about the horsy world of three day eventing and sat up late several nights in a row to read on.I found it an excellent read.

5.0 out of 5 stars A very good easy to read book 9 Aug 2010
I don't agree with the 1 star review here that you need to be crazy about horses to enjoy this book. I'm not and don't know anything about eventing..or didn't before I read "The Inheritance". Usually with specialist subjects I would need to be passionate about the subject to enjoy but for once I found there was not boring and OTT detailing..just enough to keep you interested...otherwise I would have never finished the book. I found it to be an excellent and enjoyable read...explaining just enough for someone who doesn't know anything about horses to be interested..a fascinating insight into the world of eventing and running yards and an intriguing tale of family upsets and rivals, sadness and joy, trials and tribulations.
It left me feeling that I wish that I had had a passion for horses and chosen this way of life as there is a definite country-family feel to the whole thing, of a group of people tied together by their love of horses and what they do and a life a bit like a farm life with noisy, untidy kitchens full of people popping in and out and drinking endless cups of coffee. A fabulous read with a plot, a beginning and an end including a bit where you can cry if so inclined..lovely stuff.

5.0 out of 5 stars gripping stuff 3 Dec 2008
Compelling plot with several stories brought satisfyingly and believably together at the end. The Eventing background is exciting and informative leading to a riveting climax - I read it through the night.
