When Lori Shepherd’s husband, Bill, is summoned to the reading of a will at the Earl of Harrisford’s grand Palladian home, she jumps at the chance to join him. But none of the Harrisford clan could have possibly predicted the scandal that would ensue as the contents of the will are revealed. What starts as a sombre occasion quickly devolves into full-blown family dispute.
