'I just love these characters...they truly feel like people I know.' Lisa Boyle, author of the Paddy Series

An extraordinary bequest alters their fate...

In the winter of 1846, Cormac and Bridget receive two letters that will change their lives forever. Lord Bewley has died and left Bewley Hall to Cormac, while potato blight has struck the Oakleigh Estate, driving the tenants to appeal to Bridget for help. With their world turned upside down, they decide to leave America and cross the Atlantic to meet the challenges of their pressing responsibilities.

As for their daughter Emily, she faces a choice of her own: will she go with her family or stay in America for her art...and for Rory?

Heading towards new horizons, they must all strive to re-establish themselves while hampered by distrust and prejudice on multiple fronts. When separation once again plunges a member of the family into grave danger, will they be able to distinguish friend from foe?

A Class Inherited is the sixth book in Susie Murphy's historical fiction series A Matter of Class. The story will continue in the seventh book, A Class Divided.
