In the depths of a harsh winter, following the death of their grandmother, Erica Calcott and her sister Beth return to Storton Manor, a grand and imposing Wiltshire house where they spent their summer holidays as children. When Erica begins to sort through her grandmother's belongings, she is flooded with memories of her childhood - and of her cousin, Henry, whose disappearance from the manor tore the family apart. Erica sets out to discover what happened to Henry, so that the past can be laid to rest, and her sister, Beth, might finally find some peace.
Gradually, as Erica begins to sift through remnants of the past, a secret family history emerges; one that stretches all the way back to turn-of-the-century America, to a beautiful society heiress and a haunting, savage land. As past and present converge, Erica and Beth must come to terms with two terrible acts of betrayal - and the heartbreaking legacy left behind.
THE LEGACY is an unforgettable, deeply satisfying story that will stay with you long after the last page has been turned.

Fantastic - beautifully written
Wasn't sure I'd enjoy this book at first as embarrassingly I have to admit I am more of a 'chick lit' girl myself. However, it was fantastic! I couldn't put it down. When I then went back to my typical 'chick lit' I found it really unsatisfying having read something which has a great story but also beautiful writing to boot! Loved it! Can't wait for her next one.... I'm now a fan.
Enjoyed this book.
I loved every minute of this book, so well written and the narrators voice was perfect for it! A huge thumbs up from me!!
