The Family Divided: The Guernsey Novels – Book 4
The Guernsey Novels – Book 4
One family, divided by death – and money
Andy Batiste, at loggerheads with his degenerate cousin, seeks to discover the truth of his family history. Why was his pregnant grandmother forced to flee Guernsey and live in France? What really happened to her husband during the German Occupation, sixty years ago? Who accused Edmund, the elder son and Batiste heir, of being an informer? Was he really a traitor – and who murdered him?
With Edmund’s brother, Harold, now head of the family, enjoying the wealth which ought to have come to Andy’s father, the family is forever divided. Andy yearns to clear Edmunds name and restore his rightful inheritance.
Into the conflict comes Charlotte Townsend, newly divorced, lonely and struggling with writer’s block and the consuming threat of impending loss. She returns to Guernsey to engage in healing at a natural-health centre, La Folie, and becomes involved in Andy’s family affairs.
Together they embark on a hunt for the truth…
