Compelling saga of two women

The Lynmara Legacy

By: Catherine Gaskin

Rating: 5 of 5

I read one of Catherine Gaskin’s books when I was young. I recently came across The Lynmara Legacy and decided to give it a read.

It is a compelling novel. It captured me from the beginning. I wasn’t sure which way the book was heading at any time. There were scenarios that I thought would continue but things changed in the space of a few paragraphs and would send me reeling but also reaching for the book until I finished it.

It’s not often a book stays with me for weeks after I read it but this one has. There are elements that will continue to be part of my thoughts for a long, long time.

It’s a story about surviving against odds. It is the story of two brave women, mother and daughter. The point of view changes between the two with the daughter having the bulk of the novel. Still, the mother was someone I related to in some ways.

I recommend the book for anyone to read. It is on the long side but, when I finished, I wished I could continue on and read what happened next in the lives of the characters.
