As the sun rose higher in the sky there was nothing to suggest that 23rd July 1932 was to be anything other than the most ordinary of days.
But, for Grace Hardie, this one day changes everything.
Grace Hardie has been happy in her family home of Greystones. Alongside her mother and brother, she lives a quiet life of sculpting. But her beloved Greystones is beginning to show signs of neglect. Unable to afford the maintenance of the sprawling estate, Grace begins to worry about who will care for her birthright when she's gone.
That is until one sunny day in July when four uninvited visitors come to call. Will these guests bring trouble and heartache to Greystones or provide the solitary Grace with happiness and love?
Filled with old friends and new faces, The Hardie Inheritance is the final instalment in the Hardie Family Series.
