    Fantastice Read

    I just finished reading my first book by Jeanette Baker, Legacy, and now have another author to add to my favorites list. This book was enchanting and kept me up reading late. The author's style is elegant, which added to my enjoyment of the book. Her words flowed with beauty. The characters are three dimensional and well written. It was easy to be drawn into their situations and care a great deal about them.

    Legacy is a book with parallel stories, a main one set in the late twentieth century, and three others set in different and fascinating eras in history. The present-day heroine, Christina, and her new love, Ian, are in serious danger due to an ancient curse on Christina's bloodline. Christina must get to the root of things, going back seven hundred years in discovery, or she is doomed.

    Technically, this book can be considered a time travel, but Christina only goes to the past for about five minutes.

    As she delves into the past and gets to know the stories of her tragic ancestors, she gets drawn deeper and deeper into their sad legacy. Can she possibly escape their fate? Their stories were heartbreaking, and as I read, I kept hoping she wouldn't follow in their footsteps.

    The setting is important to this book: Scotland, present day and past. The reader is in for a treat, getting such an excellently drawn picture of this beautiful country and its exciting history. An author with a mastery of the language provokes a gorgeous but tragic atmosphere with her words.

    Magic, love, and misfortune are themes woven well into the plot. It's quite entertaining and thought provoking. The various elements of plot are top notch. The subplots create great tension as the book races to its climax. Dialogue is realistic and exposition is excellent.

    There may have been one or two small questions I had about the characters or scenes that didn't seem to be answered, so I read between the lines.

    This is a wonderful book, and I'd highly recommend it.

    Amazing

    I really enjoyed this book, the visions into the past keeps you engrossed. I love history in general. I love the tying of the past with the present in this story. It makes you wonder who your ancestors are.
