“A brilliant and absorbing drama.”
Good Housekeeping (UK)

A fresh and exciting new voice in contemporary fiction, Katherine Webb debuts with a haunting novel about a secret family history. Already a sensation in the United Kingdom, Webb’s The Legacy is a treat for every fan of upmarket women’s fiction and literary suspense in the vein of bestselling authors Kate Morton, Sarah Waters, and Diane Setterfield. Taut, affecting, and surprising—a story that ranges from present-day England back to the American West in the early twentieth century—The Legacy embroils two sisters in an investigation into the strange, never solved disappearance of their cousin, a dark mystery that opened deep family wounds that never healed.

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must read ! Another beautiful recommendation by Goodreads, that made me discover a really good author. I was wonderfully surprised about this debut novel of Katherine Webb. This book had all the elements for it to be a five star novel in my opinion: Intergeneration family drama, the back and forth between past and present, mystery, love and lost love, secrets and lies. A real page turner. I strongly recommend that it will not disappoint.
