The Wheel of Fortune (by Susan Howatch)

This is a saga novel by Susan Howatch. I love her writing, but much prefer her more recent novels about the Church of England.

'The Wheel of Fortune' is the story of the house of Oxmoon and the power it wields over the family. The novel extends over several decades, as the past is slowly uncovered, emotions laid bare, and power struggles tear people apart.

It was a gripping read, but probably my least favourite of this author's books so far.
