When Grace and her brother Andrew inherit their grandmother's house in Hampstead, they decide to move in together. It seems the obvious thing to do: they've always got on well, the house is large enough to split down the middle, and neither of them likes partying or loud music. There's one thing they've forgotten though: what if one of them wants to bring a lover into the house? When Andrew's partner James moves in, it alters the balance - with almost fatal consequences.The Child's Child is an intriguing examination of betrayal in a family, and of those two once-unmentionable subjects, illegitimacy and homosexuality.

“Brilliant and well worth reading!”

The Child’s Child is a well written book which brings a wider understanding about how homosexualism was once illegal, and illegitimacy was frowned upon and brought disgrace to the family name. A book inside a book, as... More
