PenmarriceBook - 2012
Among Mark Castallack's sons are men who want him dead, and this hardly promotes family harmony. Mark Castallack may have the woman of his dreams, a large fortune, and Penmarric, a Victorian mock-castle on the cliffs of Cornwall, but his private life is heading for disaster. His marriage fails, and when he takes a mistress he winds up with two families who hate each other. As the twentieth century unfolds, his children are left struggling to save not only Penmarric but themselves, and their struggles are marked by greed, ambition, and murder. Howatch's magnificent novel was her first international bestseller and is as compelling as Daphne du Maurier's classic Rebecca. ¡ This ebook features an illustrated biography of Susan Howatch including rare photos and never-before-seen documents from the author's personal collection.
