The Inheritance of Solomon Farthing Book Launch

Thursday 12th September 2019


The Royal Scots Club, author Mary Paulson-Ellis and Golden Hare Books, Stockbridge (winners of the Uk’s Best Independent Bookshop) will be launching Mary’s latest book The Inheritance of Solomon Farthing at the Club on Thursday 12th September 2019, 6.30-8.30pm.

“Solomon knew that he had one advantage. A pawn ticket belonging to a dead man tucked into his top pocket – the only clue to the truth…An old soldier dies alone in his Edinburgh nursing home. No known relatives, and no Will to enact. Just a pawn ticket found amongst his belongings, and fifty thousand pounds in used notes sewn into the lining of his burial suit…Heir Hunter, Solomon Farthing – down on his luck, until, perhaps, now – is tipped off on this unexplained fortune. Armed with only the deceased’s name and the crumpled pawn ticket, he must find the dead man’s closest living relative if he is to get a cut of this much-needed cash. But in trawling through the deceased’s family tree, Solomon uncovers a mystery that goes back to 1918 and a group of eleven soldiers abandoned in a farmhouse billet in France in the weeks leading up to the armistice”.

Set between contemporary Edinburgh and the final brutal days of the First World War as the soldiers await their orders, The Inheritance of Solomon Farthing shows us how the debts of the present can never be settled unless those of the past have been paid first.

To book tickets to attend, please contact the Golden Hare book shop on 0131 629 1396 or alternatively tickets can be bought online, https://solomon-farthing.eventbrite.co.uk. Standard ticket price is £5 or £16.99 for a copy of the book and ticket.
