Dear Reader

You hold in your hands an extraordinary debut novel. The Legacy is a sweeping, multi-generational drama that moves from turn-of-the-century America to present day England. It immediately reminded me of one of my favourite novels: The Shell Seekers by Rosamunde Pilcher.

Katherine's novel is a hauntingly beautiful, deeply satisfying read, exploring themes of individual and collective identity, of loss and of atonement. Most of all, it is a novel about two women from two different generations; the truths they hide, the lies they live, the secrets they uncover and the hidden ties that bind them.

I simply cannot wait to publish this absorbing ad unforgettable read. I hope you enjoy it.
