Ben Martin is charming and successful: an academic who has raised money for children's charities and worked with women's agencies in sub-Saharan Africa, a devoted husband. But when his brother Francois, an artist based in Lisbon, finds out about Ben's affair with a student, Rita Kalungal, he finds himself feeling responsible both for his brother's actions as well as Rita; and Rita begins to realise that her involvement with Ben has far-reaching consequences on herself and her family, and others.

What Reviewers Are Saying
'Kalayil is skilled at evoking a strong sense of place and gives a compelling insight, too, into what it means to be rootless, with characters torn between the culture of their parents and that of the society in which they grew up. A highly enjoyable read' * The Scotsman * 'A captivating read that will hold you in the embrace from its opening sentence to the very last word' * Sunday Post * `Evok[es] a strong sense of place and gives a compelling insight into what it means to be rootless. A highly enjoyable read' * Yorkshire Post * 'The Inheritance shows Kalayil capable of adeptly spinning a complex web of themes which enrich the story. A delicately written, optimistic and very involving novel' * Herald *
