The characters and the storyline are nicely developed, feeding the reader descriptors’ that most can relate to. Who hasn’t had “ketchup stained jeans”, sung “Walking on Sunshine” rather loudly, or “rummaged through a hamper for something acceptable to wear” in a pinch.
This is not “War and Peace”, nor will it take you 14 years and a tremendous amount of work to suffer through. It is an easy and enjoyable read which I did in two sitting over two days. In the end, as I believe the author intended, I could “feel the light” painted nicely in words as Anna’s, and Jacob’s, and ……….’s lives are threaded together.
This is a well written summer time read for most, including older teens. There is however one casual sexual encounter having life altering effects which are nicely handled. Parents should be aware of this up front.
All in all, very enjoyable; I found myself wanting to read more by resigned to the wait for the authors next novel which I sincerely hope will be presented soon.
I would recommend this book for young adults and adults interested in historical fiction, a beach weekend, fans of Henry David Thoreau, or a ladies book club. It is written with a sense of humor, but can also be thought-provoking, lending itself to good discussion.
Legacy is a compelling reminder that the legacy we leave behind is not based solely on the obstacles we face or the decisions we make in life, but ultimately influenced by the love, encouragement, faith, and support of our friends and family.
