I usually enjoy Bradford's novels but this one was way too long and the heir at the end was a new character, not described throughout the book as the title might imply. Very long and drawn out, rambling. Not recommended.
Although it has been a while since I've read a Bradford novel I don't ever recall so many loose pieces. I really liked the beginning of this book but Ms Bradford started killing folks off and moving through generations Ina rather disjointed fashion. Then, she must have run out of pages or deadlines because after what would have been just another of the wives deaths she comes to an end and an epilogue w the new woman who finally gave the last of the generational tycoon a male heir.

Three first 3/4 of the book is all about some looming disaster, then bing bang boom 'it' happends.... and then all of a sudden it's 50 years later and nothing is resolved!
