A NovelPaperback - 2011
"A brilliant and absorbing drama."
--Good Housekeeping (UK)
A fresh and exciting new voice in contemporary fiction, Katherine Webb debuts with a haunting novel about a secret family history. Already a sensation in the United Kingdom, Webb's The Legacy is a treat for every fan of upmarket women's fiction and literary suspense in the vein of bestselling authors Kate Morton, Sarah Waters, and Diane Setterfield. Taut, affecting, and surprising--a story that ranges from present-day England back to the American West in the early twentieth century--The Legacy embroils two sisters in an investigation into the strange, never solved disappearance of their cousin, a dark mystery that opened deep family wounds that never healed.
