Booksneeze has provided me with a complimentary copy of The Inheritance of Beauty by Nicole Seitz.
George Jacobs and his childhood sweetheart were just kids living in small-town Levy, SC, when the train brought the evil to town. Now eighty years later, George and Maggie are married, living out their remaining days in Harmony House where time moves slowly--Maggie can no longer communicate her love and George can hardly remember their past. But when a large package arrives and an old stranger moves into Harmony House, their past won't remain at bay any longer. Like it or not, George must now remember things from long ago in order to set himself--and his sweet wife--free. But George isn't sure how many lives were affected by the stranger in Levy . . . or why life must come full-circle now when he's running out of time.
This book was a very good book. I thought that Nicole Seitz did a very good job on this book. I would recommend it to everyone.
The story starts in a retirement home where George and Magnolia live now since they are both in their 80’s. But something in their childhood happens that has been forgotten until a package arrives and another person arrives from their past. Then it opens up new remembrances that George must face, good and bad.
I think that everyone young, old, in between ages would thoroughly love this book.
