9781781998717: The Inheritance

Ally Bunbury's debut novel opens in the London townhouse of Sofia Tamper, spoilt Hollywood princess, whose momager is hell-bent on generating positive publicity for her protegee in advance of her appearance in Violet Tiger, a much trumpeted new TV series.
To this end, the venue is crammed with beautiful and influential people, none more so than George Wyndham, renowned art dealer, heir to a Tudor mansion in Scotland, and one of the country's most eligible bachelors. Also there, albeit at the insistence of her PR maven boss, is Irish-born Anna Rose whose brief is to rub shoulders with the right people and drum up new business for Winterbottom PR.
Having failed to connect with the jaded and peevish Sofia Tamper, Anna is planning her exit strategy when her bikini strap snaps. And voila! Out of the blue comes the dashing George Wyndham to preserve Anna's modesty with a silk kaftan. Of course the pair fall instantly in love, and Anna duly brings her new beau home to meet her delightfully eccentric parents, Harry and Freddie, at their idyllic Georgian pile in the west of Ireland. They too are charmed by their daughter's new man, as is Mrs B the housekeeper, Bernard the gardener and Dharma, the live-in yogi master. It seems nothing can come between the happy couple.
But back in Scotland, all is not well. George returns home to discover that his estranged father, Robert Wyndham, has sold George's beloved late mother's favourite painting - a Titian - and is busily squandering the proceeds. Furthermore, Sofia Tamper, whose scheming mother Blaire was born and reared in the shadow of the Big House, has wheedled her way into Wyndham senior's affections.
With his inheritance under threat, George is forced to make a choice - one with devastating consequences.

From the Author:

Sometimes the best moves are impulsive, and stepping off the London treadmill to live in Paris during my late twenties was one of them.  My father had been ill for many months and when he died at home in Ireland, I needed head space that I couldn't possibly have found if I had stayed in my PR job, no matter how much I loved it. When a close friend suggested I move to Paris and rent her apartment, I jumped at the opportunity, even though I had no idea what I would do there. And it's hard to explain, but when I walked into my pretty Parisian kitchen, bright yellow with tall windows, I felt utterly compelled to write. I sat down at the rustic wooden table and began. As the days went by, I played the saddest possible music, from La Bohème to soulful jazz. I can remember tears pouring down my face as my characters began to discuss their lives, make choices, contend with dramas and find love. It was pure therapy but that was how The Inheritance began.
When I returned to Ireland, I was still writing. It was 2004, the year Cecilia Ahern published PS I Love you, and I can remember thinking quietly to myself ... maybe one day my own novel will be published. But reality was knocking on the door and, having indulged in my eight month 'personal sabbatical,' it was time to get back to work. Moving to Dublin to work for a PR agency, I quickly met Turtle Bunbury and, with marriage and two daughters, life just got better. And what of the book? Well, I certainly thought about it, but I had returned to my frenetic life in PR, Absolutely Fabulous darling. The Inheritance was always there, nudging, hinting, urging me to get back to it ... and then one morning, ten years later, I opened my French laptop ... and said hello to Anna Rose.
Anna is an Irish girl, who goes to work in London for the fabulous "PR Queen" Gilda Winterbottom. She goes to an absurdly opulent party in Kensington hosted by the Hollywood actress, Sofia Tamper, and meets George Wyndham, a dashing art dealer and heir to his ancestral estate in Scotland. Anna and George very quickly fall in love only to find themselves cornered into an impossible situation involving the ravishing but utterly spoilt Sofia. With his inheritance under threat, George is forced to make a terrible choice. The story takes place in London, Paris, Ireland, Scotland and LA.
The major difference between writing in Paris, and completing the book in County Carlow, where we now live, is that I am now a mother. I also run my own PR business, so writing a book in 'my own time' was certainly challenging - especially when a room of one's own is the kitchen! However, working in a large open plan office during my PR agency days stood me in good stead, as I find I can sit down and write when the children might play Twister or built an obstacle course for their hamster, Mr Nibbles.
If there is one piece of advice I'd love to pass on about writing a book, it is this from Marian Keyes - 'If you want to write a book, don't watch television.'  And it does require discipline, as sinking into a deep sofa to indulge in a Netflix binge after a long day can be unbelievably tempting, but once you get into the habit of instead settling in behind your lap top with a glass of wine or a mug of steaming tea, it is another form of relaxation.
I feel like the stars aligned whilst I wrote The Inheritance. A number of conversations with my close friends, including my husband, made my book happen. The feeling of people being behind you, holding you up, really can make good, and even great things happen. I had always known the power of friendship was strong but, before The Inheritance came to be, I hadn't realized just how much other people's belief can fuel your own self-belief. After ten years of marriage, and the arrival of two gorgeous daughters, now that I have started writing again I feel as if a strong flame has been lit inside me and I couldn't be happier about it.allybunbury.com
