Book Review & Giveaway - My Daughter's Legacy


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.

I love a book that grabs me and won't let go until the last page and this book definitely fits this for me! I seriously had the hardest time putting the book down as I wanted to know what was going to happen next. Although this is book 3 in the series, I was never seriously lost, however, I do think it would have been great to have the background of the first 2 books before reading this one. Plus, this book was so good, I would like to read the first two!

I really liked the historical elements of this book, and while I'm not a huge fan of jumping time periods, the authors pulled it off beautifully in this book. They gave me time to absorb what I was reading about one time period before going off to the next and it made sense to the story. I also loved the mysterious story line as I am a huge mystery fan.

I found myself really cheering Nicole on as she had just finished up in a recovery program and is trying to set her addiction aside and start her life anew. I liked how we see Nicole's ancestor, Therese, having a connection to Nicole and the strength of these two women coming through.

I really found myself invested in these characters and enjoyed each and every moment spent with them through these pages. I really think you'll like this book and give it 5 out of 5 stars.
