Legacy: An Emily Taylor Mystery (Volume 3) Paperback – June 26, 2012

From the Author
Although the little town of Burchill is fictional, it is based on Merrickville, a gorgeous enclave near Ottawa, Ontario. Some of the streets are the same, though I've taken total liberty with who lives there, and added a lake and a First Nations Reserve. I hope you love Burchill as much as I do. If you live anywhere near Merrickville, go visit and see what I mean about its beauty and friendliness.
I am fortunate to have a close bond with an Ojibwa clan whose mother was the real Agnes Lake. I have taken the philosophies and legends and made them my own in this book. My children are part Native, too, which may help explain my love of the culture.
I want to assure anyone who is an avid reader of the Bible that no disrespect is meant by my portrayal of the fanatics in this novel. In fact, I hope I made it clear that their misuse of the messages within that book was neither approved of by the other characters nor was the interpretation a reasoned response.
Some of the legal and medical facts as presented by Doc and Jacob are probably incorrect, because I used them to fit my own purposes.
Honest, you'll find out what happened to Langford in Vancouver in the next book!
From the Back Cover
Not all legacies are good ones...
While Emily Taylor deals with the dysfunctional Sanderson family at school, seemingly unconnected characters play out their own troubled journeys into the past.
Doro searches for her lost childhood. Alain Reneaux delves into the reasons behind his violent nightmares. The town's new lawyer, Jacob Finch, suffers from guilt about the heartbreaking death of his wife. And two lonely little girls suffer neglect and tragedy.
As Emily untangles the complexities of the Sanderson children's lives, the collision of past into future causes an inferno of insanity and death, which ultimately proves how essential family and friendship are to happiness and endurance.

This was an intriguing/tragic novel that was eloquently told through the eyes of four main people whose lives ultimately intertwine and connect through an incident from the past. I was enchanted and haunted by the setting, so vivid and rich. The descriptive narration produced deep feeling characters who were easy to relate to in their strength and weaknesses--their determination to discover and accept the past was inspiring. As the mystery unfolds, I found it hard to stop reading as I became emotionally invested in their lives and where they might end up.
I will be looking forward to the next book and will read other works from this author.
