Enid Campbell, granddaughter of a duke, grew up surrounded by servants, wanting for nothing except love. When her brother died in the First World War, a new heir was needed, and it was up to Enid to provide it. A troubled marriage and three children soon followed. Broken by depression, overwhelmed by motherhood and a loveless marriage, Enid made the decision to abandon her family, thereby starting a chain of events — a kidnap, a court case, and selling her son to her sister for £500 — that reverberated through the generations. A Perfect Explanation explores the perils of aristocratic privilege, where inheritance is everything and happiness is hard won.
