Every avid reader will know this great author. But you may not
have discovered this novel which resurfaced within the past 20
years. Written in her youth, Inheritance is a simple,
but lovely exhibit of a budding literary genius.
An Italian orphan
girl, Edith, comes to England to reside with the noble family of
Lord Hamilton. She is described "with an angel's calm and
almost holy beauty' and owns a most 'holy and as pure a heart --
gentle, true, and tender'
Well, we all know, bad things
must happen to the great, beautiful and kind-hearted (otherwise the
book is not quite so enjoyable)! So read on friends.
Book group idea: Read this
along with one of her later works as a comparison.
