'SO immersive, atmospheric and compelling' Marian Keyes
'Kept me glued to the page'
Alex Marwood
'Achingly poignant . . . An absolutely brilliant read' Sunday Mirror
_____________

Beginnings, middles and ends; Peggy, Serena, Natasha and Bel. This is the room that binds them, this is how consequences work . . .

In deepest Cornwall, the mansion Kittiwake has seen many pass through its doors since it was bought by American heiress Peggy Carmichael seventy years ago.

Over the decades, the keys have been handed down through the family, and now it belongs to Bel's adoptive brother, Lance. It's where he'll be celebrating his fiftieth birthday, and Bel is invited.

But Bel barely feels like she's holding it together as it is, and in going back to Kittiwake, she will be returning to the place where it all began - where, following the death of a child, a sequence of events was set in motion, the consequences of which are still rippling down through the generations . . .

From Sunday Times bestselling author Jenny Eclair comes an utterly compelling new novel of family secrets that will stay with you long after you've turned the last page.

MEDIA REVIEWS
As you'd expect from Eclair, there's plenty of humour, some very dark. But what might surprise is the achingly poignant sadness of some of the characters, who are incredibly well drawn. An absolutely brilliant read * Sunday Mirror *
Inheritance, by one of our favourite comedians, Jenny Eclair . . . centres on an old Cornish mansion named Kittiwake . . . Intrigue, romance and mystery, all delivered with Jenny's trademark wit * My Weekly *
She has firmly established herself as an author who delivers big emotional reads. Read it for the dramatic twists that will keep you riveted and for Eclair's tongue-in-cheek humour * Good Housekeeping *
Oh my God, this book! I DEVOURED it! By comedian Jenny Eclair . . . It is SO immersive, atmospheric and compelling. I loved Jenny's last book Moving but this is in another league . . . I recommend it HIGHLY -- Marian Keyes
I truly LOVED this book. Jenny Eclair said one of her favourite sub genres of literature is "posh people behaving badly" and this absolutely delivers. Smart, heart-breaking, moving and captivating with plenty of deliciously waspish social commentary -- Daisy Buchanan
Jenny Eclair once again kept me glued to the page with Inheritance. Such a brilliant writer, so sharp and yet so forgiving. The heir of my writing goddess Elizabeth Taylor, and I don't say that lightly -- Alex Marwood
A riveting page-turning family saga -- Anneka Rice
Very much enjoyed INHERITANCE by Jenny Eclair. It is witty as you might expect but it's much much more . . . an ambitious, epic saga that has kept me gripped for three days. It's a tragedy as much as a comedy and I have bloody loved it -- Philippa Perry, author of The Book You Wish Your Parents Had Read (and Your Children Will Be Glad That You Did)
I was gripped * Daily Mail *
