(2004)
(The first book in the Cresswell Inheritance Trilogy series)

But as Mortimer Cresswell grows old, the family starts to break apart - consumed by private ambition, rivalry and bitter feuding. Inward looking, they are ill prepared for the great social and economic changes that await them.

The rise of the nouveaux riches will affect both master and servant, and the Great War and its aftermath will ensure that the world will never again be as it was in the Edwardian age, a golden afternoon - so long as you were upper class and rich ...
