Publisher's Summary

1945. The vote in the House of Lords as to who should inherit the Barrington family fortune has ended in a tie. The Lord Chancellor’s deciding vote will cast a long shadow on the lives of Harry Clifton and Giles Barrington. Harry returns to America to promote his latest novel, while his beloved Emma goes in search of the little girl who was found abandoned in her father’s office on the night he was killed. When the General Election is called, Giles Barrington has to defend his seat in the House of Commons and is horrified to discover who the Conservatives select to stand against him. But it is Sebastian Clifton, Harry and Emma’s son, who ultimately influences his uncle’s fate.
In 1957, Sebastian wins a scholarship to Cambridge, and a new generation of the Clifton family march onto the page. After Sebastian is expelled from school, he unwittingly becomes caught up in an international art fraud involving a Rodin statue that is worth far more than the sum it raises at auction. Does he become a millionaire? Does he go to Cambridge? Is his life in danger? Best Kept Secret will answer all these questions, but once again, pose so many more.

Oh No!!!!!

I have just listened to this, having waiting on tenterhooks for this sequel to be released! I felt quite uneasy in parts of the novel because I was so 'wound up' in the fates of our family that I could see disasters falling, and I became tense .......... having finished it over two days - I am now WAITING FOR THE NEXT PART!!!!!!



Really a gripping tale - I really care what happens to the Cliftons and the Barringtons .... Lots of intrigue, lots of clever plans - but now ..... How long until number 4.

Good listen!!

Excellent story, really good plot line kept me hooked till the end. The narration and characterisation was very believable and I would quite easily listen to it a second time. Highly recommended!
