The Legacy is a powerful novel of rivalry and love, conflict and grief that will play on your mind long after you have turned the final page.
Following Jon's death, his three adult children gather in their childhood home by the sea. But far from being united in grief, the siblings are divided by the contents of their father's will, which states that they must decide together how to dispose of his estate before he can be laid to rest.
Liv, Noah and Chloe have never agreed on anything. And now, with one weekend to overcome their rivalry, tensions soon begin to rise and boil over.
Why would Jon do this to his family? Was he a cruel man or simply a mischief-maker? Perhaps he wanted to teach them a lesson from beyond the grave? But if so, what is it? And will they be able to put their differences aside long enough to learn it?
