Heirs of Ravenscar

LoveReading View on Heirs of Ravenscar

The second volume in the building of the family empire, Deravenels sees Edward beget six children, two boys and four girls. Through trauma, disasters and much drama we whip through the generation and into the 70s to await the next instalment. I won’t tell you who lives and dies, who favours who and who will be scared by jealousy, I’ll just say that despite, on occasions, a tad too much peripheral detail (what is eaten or drunk) and not enough of Bess’s story, you are certainly left eager for the third.

Sarah Broadhurst

Heirs of Ravenscar Synopsis

As Edward Deravenel stands alone on the rocky Ravenscar beach he counts his blessings. The war to end all wars is over; he and his brothers have survived. Now he can build Deravenels, the family business empire, into all he has dreamed of.

Yet there is a thorn in his side – his reckless younger brother, George. George's gambling and unpaid debts are beginning to cause rumours and unease.

And Edward realises that his brother is capable of not just recklessness but blackmail and betrayal. The fortunes of the house of Deravenal suffer a terrible reversal as one disaster follows another, and tragedy strikes.

Ravenscar

A House. A Legacy. A Dynasty.

It is Edward's daughter Bess, his golden girl, who carries the family name forward, making an alliance that will secure the empire and the inheritance, and start a new dynasty.

And it is Bess's son Harry who stands in his grandfather's shoes at a similar age and vows to rebuild Deravenels to greatness – as long as he can have the son and heir he longs for. Whatever it takes…
