It is the first half of the nineteenth century, England, and the Haggard family are raising eyebrows at the highest levels of society.

The infamous head of the family, John Haggard, has shot himself, leaving his soldier son Roger the new squire of Derleth Hall in Derbyshire.

Meanwhile, his younger brother Johnnie languishes in gaol, awaiting execution for frame breaking.

With a promise of marriage to the tinker's daughter Meg Bold, and an exile for Johnnie to the family sugar plantation in the West Indies, it looks as though Roger is certainly capable of making bold decisions as the new head of the family.

But it is when he comes into the orbit of the Favering family, intent on luring him from the Tory to the Whig party, that things begin to spiral out of control for Roger Haggard.

With Roger now in thrall to the beautiful but dangerous Mina Favering, and Johnnie to the equally dangerous poet of the day: Lord Byron, things are never simple for those with the name of Haggard.

How will the rebellious Johnnie deal with being made head of the sugar plantation, worked on by slaves?

Will he be able to quell the secret desires of his heart?

What will become of Roger Haggard: soldier; lover; aristocrat?

And most important of all, what will the Haggard family say to ridding the world of slavery, when so much of their wealth depends on it?

The sequel to Christopher Nicole's searing Haggard, Haggard's Inheritance is a fine historical epic, revealing a fascinating glimpse into a turbulent times, from Napoleon to Whig politics to slave ownership.
