books - The Inheritance of Beauty

The Inheritance of Beauty by Nicole SeitzOverview

Beauty, like truth, is enduring. But only one can set you free.

Maggie Black came of age in the lush, fragrant lowcountry of South Carolina-spending her days with her beloved brother and the boy she would grow up to marry. But when a stranger arrived one summer, Maggie couldn't imagine the evil he would bring with him. And though she escaped with her life, the ramifications of that fateful summer would alter all of their lives forever.

Now, some eighty years later, Maggie and her husband George are spending their remaining days in a nursing home, helpless as age slowly robs Maggie of her ability to communicate. When a mysterious package arrives, followed closely by a stranger whose identity haunts them, Maggie and George are hemmed in by a history they'd rather forget.

As the truth reveals itself, George knows he must face the past and its lifetime of repercussions. It's the only way to free himself and his precious wife-if it's not too late.

THE INHERITANCE OF BEAUTY is a rich and enchanting story about age and beauty, about the blessings and curses of each, and how true beauty endures for a lifetime.
