“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.

    What a most disappointing book! I will not read any other books by this author. The last writing of Meredith was of her being seven years old and slapped by her deranged mother and then locked in her room for a week with only bread and water. Way too many characters that were never properly developed. Thus, as a reader you are left hanging with the feeling that chapters must be missing. And, why in the world would an excerpt be inserted before the books epilogue. Just very poorly woven. Sorry, this was a Huge disappointment for me. Pamela P
