The Legacy, 2011 by Jewel Adams

FROM BACK OF BOOK

North Carolina native, Cisely Matthews has seen and suffered much in her twenty-two years of life, and she has the scars to prove it. When amazing blessings come to her, she wonders if she will ever feel worthy enough to deserve them.

Australian-born Ingo Kelly is thrown for an emotional loop when he visits his aunt in Utah and meets Cisely for the first time. He falls for her hard and fast. But getting her to accept his love is a challenge he is more than willing to take on.

Adagio St. John is Ingo's best friend and the two are as close as brothers. When Adagio travels to Utah from his home in Italy to attend Ingo and Cicely's wedding, he is overjoyed that his friend has found happiness with such an amazing woman. He hopes he can find the same happiness one day and end the loneliness he struggles with on a daily basis. There are prospects aplenty, but none of the shallow beauties can capture his heart.

When love does finally come to Adagio, will he allow himself to embrace it or continue to go it alone?

We are told that trials help to make us stronger, that we have to go through pain to really savor the experience of joy. I have known this for a long time, but I now know something else. The strength that comes from those trials is actually faith refined; the joy that comes after the pain, celestial favor.
Cisely St. John's journal

Beautiful Cisely Matthews' life has been a life full of tragedy from the day she was born. She is raised by an alcoholic mother and an abusive father. She has feelings of loneliness and doubts her self-worth and this is only reinforced everyday of her life until age 12 by a father who daily physically and mentally abuses her.

This is one of those times when I want to give 10 stars! Jewel Adams has woven a poignant story that covers the gamut of life. Cisely rises from stereotype to queen as she takes positive steps to better her life. You will laugh, and cry and you're going to get ticked off at Gladys. This isn't the typical meet this morning bump and grind tonight book. Jewel develops the characters and the story thoroughly and pulls you in. There is healing and forgiveness lessons without being preachy. Adagio is the man you want by your side for the rest of your life. I want to visit the places: Utah, Tuscany and of course, Venice. This is an old-fashioned novel that spans nearly 60 years and makes you feel a part of the action. Well done!

This a wonderful book. I thought it would be your average quick story but it is actually a beautiful story of belief in self, God,transitions, love, jealousy and forgiveness. It will make you laugh and cry and be thankful for the blessings you take for granted.

This is a story of a full lifetime of commitment and it was very refreshing. This is a great value as well. It is very true to what we live thru in this real game called life. I hope you will take to explore a really unique and different approach to an IR relationship.

This book pulled me and would not let go. It had a religion undertone that's not an overly and preachy. The main characters pulled you into the storyline made you want to be a part of their family. It made you think about true love and what is really meant to be in love. As I read the story I thought about how I can be a better person and be to make a difference in someone else's life. It also made me cherish the love I have with my husband and my son.

This was such a great and amazing story. I loved Cisely and all that she went through and I loved how she over came. I loved the story line with Ingo and with Adagio it had me crying and smiling. This was a great love story to read. Great work!

(SPOILER ALERT!!) I must say that this is the best book that I've read in such a long time!!!! You see how Cisely's life unfolds and how through forgiveness and love she grows into a beautiful woman surrounded by the one thing she missed growing up- a family. I thought it was over when Ingo died and that she would step into some abyss of depression and solitude but that didn't happen at all. But that didn't happen and in steps Adagio. Just goes to show how you never know how life may unfold for you and why you go through things. Who would have known that tragedy turned into bliss and happiness. I loved their relationship and how in sync they were with each other. I absolutely loved it!! That is how it should be with a wife & husband. That is how much of a "oneness" there should be. I recommend this to everybody who would listen. I can't wait to read the next one. I'm buying it next week.

This is the most captivating read I have had for a good while. I couldn't put it down. The Legacy is a tale about a young woman of color battling her demons on a daily basis. She is quite beautiful, yet has a hard time seeing it. She has been scarred for life by the abuse of her alcoholic mother and her abusive father. Growing up in a home where she was told of her worthlessness, she finds it very hard to believe she has any value. Now in her early twenties, she struggles to erase the life she has tried to escape for less than two years. Drugs, immorality and drinking were her reality until she helped another abused girl and vowed to change her own life. That part has been the easiest for her. The hard part is believing she is worth anything more now than the nothing she was. With such a heavy shadow on her shoulders, she tries to take life one day at the time. That is until a young man comes into her life and stirs up anew all her guilt.
It is so hard to accept oneself when our entire life we have been told we aren't worth anything. This is a beautiful book that teaches us that we can all change and forgive ourselves for the things we have done in the past and forgive those who have wronged us. No one is perfect and we all need to forget and move on. Great writing.
