A thrilling tale of two women longing to follow God’s leading, make the most of second chances, and find true love at last
Virginia, 1864
Therese Jennings cannot abide the thought of owning slaves. When her widowed mother inherits a plantation, Therese flees to Civil War Richmond, where she works as a governess by day and tends to wounded soldiers at night. But when trouble befalls her family, can she reconcile her obligations with her beliefs? And will love-whether with an old beau or a handsome new suitor-ever fit in her broken world?
Virginia, present day
Nicole Talbot’s life is back on track after years of substance abuse. Home from college for the summer, she’s finally ready to share a shocking secret, one that raises new questions about a traumatic childhood experience. But when facts she uncovers cast doubt on her family’s legacy, she must risk all that she’s gained-her fresh start, her family’s trust, and her growing relationship with a new man-to unlock the secrets of the past.
My Daughters Legacy
Clark and Gould fascinate with My Daughter’s Legacy!  I loved the parallel stories happening in this one, and these authors are masters of this technique.  Intertwining the historical story with the modern-day component keeps the interest high and the pages turning.
I absolutely loved the historical element of this story.  As a Northerner living in the South, the effects of the Civil War remain obvious, and so reading about the beginning of this conflict was fascinating.  I especially liked reading about the issue of slavery from a different perspective, and I thoroughly enjoyed Therese’s.
Nicole’s story was interesting, though, too.  Her story began in the book before this one, so reading the earlier books in the series is helpful.  Nicole grows a great deal in these books,  She’s becoming a strong and independent woman, and she makes my favorite kind of lead. 
Clark and Gould have been favorite authors for years, and their books never disappoint.  My Daughter’s Legacy is no exception.
