The House of Hervey: A History of Tainted Talent
This is a comic and tragic tale of the Hervey family whose gift as builders, diarists and in recent times astute businesmen has left a trail of anecdotes. It reveals a clan which is sometimes at war with itself, with more skeletons rattling in their cupboards than many would care to admit to.
