Descripción de editorial
High on a hilltop of windswept grasslands, once the site of a Celtic fort, stands Kimbles Top: the award-winning, innovative house built for Gina by her architect husband in the late 1960s.
Now Gina has died and her will leaves Kimbles Top not to her daughter, but to her brash domineering niece, Robyn.
Ginas father, William, cannot believe she had intended to leave her daughter with nothing. Besides, his suspicions have already been awakened by the sight of Robyn in intimate conversation with her uncle Tommy: Williams hard-headed businessman son. Tommy and Robyn have barely exchanged a civil word for years.
William, an 83 year old widower plagued by loneliness and old age, is nevertheless determined to learn the truth. Spurred on by the lies and deception he meets along the way, he soon begins to make painful discoveries. Ultimately his journey will lead to the revelation of a closely guarded secret at the heart of Kimbles Top itself.
Set in the historic market town of Wellingborough, Kimbles Top has a sense of place firmly rooted in the Northamptonshire landscape and recognises that the deepest human dramas are often played out within the ordinary scenes of everyday life.
