New book: Inheriting the Earth in Norwich

£16.95

From prize-winning author Cheryl Nicol comes this fascinating account of one of England's most powerful political dynasties, the Long family of Wiltshire.

Featuring in the BBC documentary "A Country House Revealed", the Longs were empire-builders, fiercely ambitious opportunists, maintaining their position as Wiltshire's administrative and political backbone for half a millennium.

It's all here; a family curse, a bitter feud, murder, civil war, treasonous plots and the biggest scandal of the Georgian era.

Spanning five centuries, more than a dozen monarchs and a revolution in land ownership, Inheriting the Earth explores the forces and characters that shaped, and ultimately vanquished, a once powerful dynasty.
