The Disinherited exposes the dark side of English history, as ancient wealth mixes with modern manners

About the Author

After studying History at Oxford University, Robert Sackville-West worked in publishing, founding Toucan Books in 1985, which creates illustrated non-fiction books for an international market. He now combines that with chairing Knole Estates, the property and investment company which runs the Sackville family's interests at Knole. In 2008, he and his wife and three children moved in the house, which has been occupied by the Sackville family for 400 years. The incredible history of Knole and the Sackville family, Inheritance, was published in 2010.

Reviews

Sackville-West has done his best with this tangled and unedifying tale. He writes elegantly and has been able to draw on Victoria's diaries and the copious documentation thrown up by her uncle Henry's court case * Sunday Times * Brilliantly exposes the shadowy side of the Victorian aristocracy and the horrors of life on the wrong side of the blanket . . . A marvellous book - a gripping story, superbly researched and related with grace and humour in elegant, enjoyable prose. * Literary Review * Poignant * Daily Telegraph * His extraordinary research uncovers a world of shadows lying within inches of his family's official history, and he enters into it with sympathy and understanding * Economist * Immaculately written ... A fascinating picture of a forgotten underside of English aristocratic and public life * Lucy Lethbridge, Observer * Entertaining * Evening Standard * Meticulous * Country Life * A romping read * Tatler *
