's review

it was amazing

Alice Hoffman was the whole reason I requested the Inheritance series from netgalley. I've been a fan of Hoffman and her wonderful writing. This story did not disappoint.

Adeline's dad dies when she's twelve and her mom accepts a job looking after two lighthouses. Her mom is selfish, unkind and is pretty much looking out for number one. This is the story of all the havoc she causes when she enters the lives of the three families living at the lighthouses and the impact it has on Adeline and the story of Adeline’s redemption. Mothers and daughters are always complicated and it's just so in this powerful story.

This is one of the five books in Amazon's Inheritance series. "A collection of five stories about secrets, unspoken desires, and dangerous revelations between loved ones."
