On New Year's Day, 1900, the brilliant violinist Sebastian Cavendish is found dead. The last few days of his life are a mystery, but in the final hours of 1899 he wrote a cryptic suicide note mentioning a 'cursed inheritance', took poison, and died in agony. Yet his friends and relations are utterly perplexed. The man they knew and grieve for was vivacious, exuberant and extroverted. His fellow musicians speak of his passion, his drive, and his love of living. The socialites he met, all of whom lavished him with praise, saw only a dazzling future ahead of him. So why, his loved ones ask, would he change his plans at such short notice, disappear for days on end, and take his own life? Established detective Vanessa Weatherburn is engaged to investigate the dead man's final movements. It is a journey which will reveal to her the science of genetics, the history of Sebastian's equally brilliant grandfather and the long-kept secrets of the Cavendish family. She must cross continents and trace every lead if she is to uncover the mystery of Sebastian's inheritance, and why it meant his death.

Countess York was a very rich mean spoiled woman who upon her husband’s death inherited not only his wealth but his cold heartedness. The countesses’ husband was a wealthy oil tycoon who handled all his affairs with an iron fist. The minute her husband died the countess had plenty of money to give her husband a very expensive funeral, but being taught by a man with a cold heart and an iron fist, he was lucky to have been put into a pine box and buried in the family cemetery. The countess had ice water pumping through her veins, but not enough to make her bury her husband in a shallow grave on their estate. After the funeral the Countess York immediately called the attorney's office to get on with the reading of the will. The countess even showed up early for the reading, continually knocking on the attorney's door asking, are you done yet? She also frantically paced back and forth by the door. Finally, the door opened and the countess burst inside and sat down in front of the attorney's desk and said "let's get on with it. I haven't got all day." The attorney replied "since there are no living relatives left but you, everything has been left to you." The Countess York replied "where do I sign." The countess signed the legal documents and gathered her things, went back to the estate to clear her husband’s things out of the closet, when she spotted a fairly large box. The countess opened the box in amazement, of what she had just found. "It's a crown of jewels. This must be worth a fortune, said the countess." It was her wicked grandmother's crown. One thing that slipped the countesses mind was that the crown was cursed by a gypsy woman that was slain by her father to cover up the affair they were having. Just before he slit his mistress throat, she put a curse on the crown of jewels, that if anyone would dare to put on the crown, they will surely die.

A groundbreaking book that will transform how we understand ourselves and our families by revealing that everything we thought we knew about genetics is wrong: * Your genes are not fixed; * the traits you inherit aren't unalterable; * the way you behave can affect how these genes are passed down to your children. Your experiences, no matter how seemingly inconsequential - from bullies to crushes to what you eat for dinner - have all left an indelible mark within you. And more importantly, within your genes. We're taught that we don't have much of a choice in the matter of what we get or what we give, because our genetic legacy was fixed when our parents conceived us. But that's all wrong. Our genes are constantly on the move, some are turning on while others are turning off, all in response to what you're doing, what you're seeing, and what you're feeling. And all of those things can be changed, which means we can change. Genetically. INHERITANCE is a guidebook for that change. No longer do we have to settle for what we've been given. We can write our own story.

The conventional view of the family in the nineteenth-century novel holds that it venerated the traditional domestic unit as a model of national belonging. Contesting this interpretation, American Blood argues that many authors of the period challenged preconceptions of the family and portrayed it as a detriment to true democracy and, by extension, the political enterprise of the United States. Relying on works by Harriet Beecher Stowe, Nathaniel Hawthorne, William Wells Brown, Pauline Hopkins, and others, Holly Jackson reveals family portraits that are claustrophobic, antidemocratic, and even unnatural. The novels examined here welcome, in Jackson's reading, the decline of the family and the exclusionary white-privileging American social order that it supported. Embracing and imagining this decline, the novels examined here incorporate and celebrate the very practices that mainstream Americans felt were the most dangerous to the family as an institution-interracial sex, doomed marriages, homosexuality, and the willful rejection of reproduction. In addition to historicized readings, the monograph also highlights how formal narrative characteristics served to heighten their anti-familial message: according to Jackson, the false starts, interpolated plots, and narrative dead-ends prominent in novels like The House of the Seven Gables and Dred are formal iterations of the books' interest in disrupting the family as a privileged ideological site. In sum, American Blood offers a much-needed corrective that will generate fresh insights into nineteenth-century literature and culture.
