According to the British laws at the time, the heir must be the oldest son. But what is to be done when the second son is more worthy of it - and is more beloved by Miss Rayland herself?

    It was a long book to listen to, but it was filled with suspense, adventure a feeling of dread. I did not like the narrative of the first two chapters of the first and second volumes as it sounded like she was reading sitting inside a box so I didn't understand anything that was said. Other than that it was good.
