The Legacy by Katherine Webb. It is 2 stories connecting the early 1900's with the present day. Two sisters come together to sort through their Grandmother's belongings after her death and they are both haunted by something that happened in their childhood. One cannot really remember what happened and I believe the other has spent all her live trying to forget it! The 'other' tale is all about their Great Grandmothers first marraige in America and how she leaves this life, taking something with her. This secret has to be hidden but the truth is discovered by one of the sisters in the present day.
I really enjoyed this book and it was an easy read, a perfect first book after the studying. The relationships are interesting with some strange interactions at times but as the story progresses you begin to understand the depth to some of the characters. I guessed what happened to the cousin Henry and some aspects of this are somewhat unbelievable but it didn't ruin the story (I ma trying hard not to give the story away here!!!)
If you go over to the book journey you can see what other books are being read this week.
I would love to know what you think of this book and also what you're reading at the moment xxx
