    Entertaining historical novellas

    ¿Charlotte¿. In the 1840¿s, a bored Charlotte Brent marries military officer Hugh Connell to escape the ennui of Victorian England. They journey to Afghanistan where she falls in love with the philandering but dashing Alexander Bewick before the fall of Kabul. <P>¿Alexandra¿. Around the turn of the century, Charlotte¿s granddaughter, a dispirited Alexandra, wants to draw. However to do so in peace, she must escape from her rancorous sexagenarian mother Iskandara. When the opportunity to care for her great-aunt Emily, Charlotte¿s sister, arises, Alex leaps for it. There she meets two men, one being a bit older and a more mature person. The other, a fellow artist encourages Alex to be all she can be, but to someone who does not like herself, he seems as selfish as her mother and as exciting as her grandfather. <P> ¿Cara¿. World War II intercedes on the life of Charlotte¿s great-granddaughter, Clara. Her existence seems dismal until she meets two men who claim they want her. Will she choose the older mature man or the selfish, exciting person more her age? <P>LEGACY OF LOVE is a well-written historical work of fiction that showcases a century of English history. The three novellas share a common theme of spirited females trapped into boredom buy society and events needing to choose between two suitors, a boring but loyal individual vs. an exciting but immature person. Each tale accomplishes what it sets out to do with world events impacting people and their choices. Although the world stage takes a backdrop to the romances, fans of historical novellas will relish the latest works from Joanna Trollope writing as Caroline Harvey. <P>Harriet Klausner
