The Inheritance: The Guernsey Novels - Book 7

by Anne Allen Sarnia Press

1862. Young widow Eugénie is left bereft when her husband dies suddenly and faces an uncertain future in Guernsey.  A further tragedy brings her to the attention of Monsieur Victor Hugo, living in exile on the island in his opulent house only yards away from Eugénie’s home.  Their meeting changes her life and she becomes his copyist, forming a strong friendship with both Hugo and his mistress, Juliette Drouet.

2012 Doctor Tess Le Prevost, Guernsey-born though now living in Exeter, is shocked to inherit her Great- Aunt’s house on the island.  As a child, she was entranced by Doris’s tales of their ancestor Eugénie, whose house this once was, and who, according to family myth, was particularly close to Hugo.  Was he the real father of her child? Tess is keen to find out and returning to the island presents her with the ideal opportunity.

Will she discover the truth about Eugénie and Hugo?

A surprise find may be the answer as Tess embraces new challenges which test her strength - and her heart.
