The Reader | 4 comments Should be published in late 1980-1990.
SPOILER Book had characters named Jan and Phillip, not really sure about the rest, but Phillip was a closet gay and miner who was married and inherited the house that Jan wanted. Jan was a soldier in the end I think? Phillip died with his nephew in a mine crash.

Sue Elleker | 801 comments I think this is 'Penmarric' by Susan Howatch. Jan's full name was Jan-Yves.
"The fateful passions and chequered fortunes of a rich, landed family, the Castallacks, and their illegitimate parish brothers, are recreated with the clash of character characteristic of the author's other novels which include "Cashelmara" and "Sins of the Fathers"."
