Synopsis

Abbeyford Inheritance by Margaret Dickinson

Set twenty years after the dramatic events that unfolded in Abbeyford, Abbeyford Inheritance is the second volume in the moving and powerful saga from Margaret Dickinson.Lynwood felt a strange constriction in his chest. No! No - it wasn't possible! Caroline had come back . . .But this is 1815; Caroline had eloped in disgrace twenty years earlier, and the girl now standing before him speaks with a low husky drawl and an accent from America.Adelina Cole. Her daughter. Returned to Abbeyford in search of a grandfather she has never seen, and the estate which she, as closest living relative, has every right to inherit. Except that Lord Royston cannot bring himself to see Adelina - her disturbing beauty reminds too many people of the past.Reluctantly taken in by distant cousins, Adelina believes she has found an ally in Emily Langley and her betrothed, the handsome, ruthless Wallis Trent. A man with old scores to settle, Trent knows Lord Royston altered his will to make Emily the main beneficiary. But Adelina's return changes everything - perhaps now his hand may be more profitably played elsewhere?And there is Francis, Earl of Lynwood - the man who first discovered Adelina. He once adored her mother and now cannot forget the face which threatens his peace of mind again . . .
