I picked this book due to a book club section. It was a book I would have never chosen on my own. I enjoyed it. The book was easy to get caught up in. It makes you think of how little we really know our parents before they were parents. It was the author's first book and I am interested to see her grow. Well done for a first timer.I gave it 4 stars just because at time she rambled, but over all a very good book

This book is exactly what a novel should be- a great story executed in words that give you everything you need to be transported without weighing you down with trite, overly-descriptive metaphors (quite an accomplishment considering parts of the book are set in Italy). There were so many sentences in this book that I would go back over a second time right after finishng them b/c they were just so smart & observant & well done. This book is now one of my new all-time favorites. I can't wait for more from Natalie Danford.

I really loved this book, also. The characters were well drawn and the story was engrossing. Ann Lebrecht, the previous reviewer has put it so well, that I can't add anything to it except to urge you to read this book.

I have just finished reading 'Inheritance' by Natalie Danford. A small book but a gem. I think it may be the finest literary book I have had the pleasure to read in over ten years. I read many books. I consider myself an avid reader. This one I happened to see a small review in the L.A Times and it seemed interesting. What an understatement. I believe this is a first novel for this outstanding writer. I sure hope she decides to continue. This book is disturbing, with a deep and well described characters and a rich story plot. The love of a daughter for her dying father, the horror of Alzheimer's and its deterioration of the mind of a human being. The plight of a Jewish family in a small town in Italy in the second world war, all lead up to a mystery, a romance and intrigue. The story jumps constantly back and forth in time, but through a prose so rich and clear and so well written you are never lost, nor wonder where in time you are. I cannot rave enough about this gem of a novel. Thank you Ms Danford wherever you are for this pleasure. PLEASE continue to write.

Yes! It is a heart felt story of love and history, and how we can so easily be robbed of the truth by time. Will leave you satisfied and looking for another Natalie Danford story to enjoy.

I enjoyed this book, more than I expected, and found myself thinking of the characters and the story after I had finished the book. The story is compelling (not kitchy or obvious) and the writing strong.

The author relayed this story by giving us little pieces at a time, transcending from the past to now and back to the past again. Olivia's past in some ways was a bit vague, and her ambitions other than to find peace were left untouched. This story did open up that part of many of us as to our family of past generations. So much was hidden, due to the period in which they occurred or the judgments future generations would make. Dig deep enough and there will be a secret in anyone's family...it will remain a secret or it will be uncovered in an unsuspecting way.

I purchased this book for a mother/daughter(15 years old) book club possible selection. The parent/child relationships span 3 generations, and provide much to discuss. There is one brief passage that was a little too explicit between lovers, but thematically it was age appropriate. I wish that the author had not included it, since it added nothing. This is a thought-provoking story which reaches back to Italy during the Holocaust and the effect that had on one family, carried forward to the U.S. by immigration. We only think we know the events that may have shaped our parents.
