The Legacy Summary


The Legacy by Katherine Webb

Two sisters. One heartbreaking secret. And a past that cannot stay buried.

In the depths of a harsh winter, Erica and Beth Calcott return to the house where they spent idyllic summers as children.

As Erica sorts through her late grandmother's belongings, strange fragments of family history and vivid memories break from the surface of the present day...Memories of their cousin, Henry, who disappeared one summer long ago, and of their grandmother, a bitter woman, full of a deep, dark hatred.

As Erica sifts through remnants of the past, a secret emerges, reaching all the way back to a beautiful heiress in turn-of-the-century Oklahoma. As past and present converge, Erica and Beth must come to terms with two terrible acts of betrayal and the heartbreaking legacy left behind.
