Book Review-My Daughter's Legacy

My Daughter’s Legacy
About the book 
My Daughter’s Legacy (Harvest House, July 2017)
A thrilling tale of two women longing to follow God’s leading, make the most of second chances, and find true love at last
Virginia, 1864
Therese Jennings cannot abide the thought of owning slaves. When her widowed mother inherits a plantation, Therese flees to Civil War Richmond, where she works as a governess by day and tends to wounded soldiers at night. But when trouble befalls her family, can she reconcile her obligations with her beliefs? And will love—whether with an old beau or a handsome new suitor—ever fit in her broken world?
Virginia, present day
Nicole Talbot’s life is back on track after years of substance abuse. Home from college for the summer, she’s finally ready to share a shocking secret, one that raises new questions about a traumatic childhood experience. But when facts she uncovers cast doubt on her family’s legacy, she must risk all that she’s gained—her fresh start, her family’s trust, and her growing relationship with a new man—to unlock the secrets of the past.
And I thought
A first for me with with a connection between history and present day. 
The authors did a great job of weaving together both stories that 
solve a mystery. 
I did not realize that My Daughter's Legacy was book  3 in the Cousins Of The Dove series.  
The book begins in the present day with Nicole and then a few chapters in we are taken back to 1864 and Teresa. 
My Daughter's Legacy isn't just about Cousins and relations 
as the title of the series leads you to believe. 
It is about Women of Fearless Devotion to God and Country and Family. 
The reader follows the family through their trials and triumphs.
Although I have not read books 1 and 2 I know I would enjoy reading both. 
Even if your not a fan of Historical Romance or Suspense.  Or of 
Contemporary Romance and Suspense take a plunge and this series a try! 
The set would make a great Christmas gift!   

I received a complimentary copy from Litfuse.
