Hidden Life

When Constance Barrington dies, she leaves behind a wealthy estate and a complex family network, all of whom gather to hear her last will and testament. What follows is a great shock. Constance – possessed of a long memory and a spiteful disposition – has altered her will shortly before her death. The new provisions are far from fair- some benefit hugely and others barely at all. Constance’s granddaughter, Louise, is bequeathed the copyright for her late grandfather’s novels (barely remembered, long-since out of print and valuable only as a reminder of the man she loved). It is a paltry inheritance and one that comes to symbolise the inequity at the heart of the Barrington family.
Soon, old family feuds and long-hidden resentments come to the surface – and with them, secrets begin to emerge. But it is through Louise’s inheritance – those dusty, long-forgotten books – that the most startling revelation comes to light, bringing with it a very different future for her and the rest of the family.
