Excerpt

d; in fact, it's the next place to Chetwood, where I got in at."

Cyril Waring looked up with a half-guilty smile as embarrassed as her own.

"Oh yes," he said quietly. "I knew that quite well. I'm down here often. It's half-way between Chetwood and Warnworth I'm painting.

Excellent story. Twin brothers, not truly illegitimate but lost in the maze of the life of their father's second marriage. Deceit of a "banker"... trials and tribulations in the era. Very well spun characters and plotline including English "entailments" surrounding inheritances. Old old stories - but as new as today at the same time. A great read the whole way through.
