My Daughter's Legacy

My Daughter’s Legacy (Harvest House, July 2017)

A thrilling tale of two women longing to follow God’s leading, make the most of second chances, and find true love at last

Virginia, 1864

Therese Jennings cannot abide the thought of owning slaves. When her widowed mother inherits a plantation, Therese flees to Civil War Richmond, where she works as a governess by day and tends to wounded soldiers at night. But when trouble befalls her family, can she reconcile her obligations with her beliefs? And will love—whether with an old beau or a handsome new suitor—ever fit in her broken world?

Virginia, present day

Nicole Talbot’s life is back on track after years of substance abuse. Home from college for the summer, she’s finally ready to share a shocking secret, one that raises new questions about a traumatic childhood experience. But when facts she uncovers cast doubt on her family’s legacy, she must risk all that she’s gained—her fresh start, her family’s trust, and her growing relationship with a new man—to unlock the secrets of the past.

My Review:

I didn’t realize this was the third book in the series until after I read it.  So I’m sure reading the first two in the series would have really helped with the back story and would have made this third book in a way easier to read/understand.  I really like the dual story aspect to it.  I hate being critical of any books, but if there was one thing I would say this didn’t quite grab my attention like some books, and the only thing I can figure is that it was just a little bit confusing to me because of the names and maybe it being the third book played into that too.  It’s still a great book, just one to make sure your thinking cap is on as you read (and maybe that’s just me – I’ve read other reviews, and didn’t find that to be a theme).  I’ve never read any books from either of the authors until now.  I did feel drawn in by the characters and their stories.  I can’t honestly say it was my favorite or up there with my favorite, but it was an enjoyable read and one to take your time reading.  If I were giving this a grade, it would get a B+ or maybe a 3.8/5 ranking.
