Review: Legacy

Legacy Legacy by Jacquelin Thomas
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Jacquelin Thomas takes us on a journey in Legacy. Set in New Orleans, we meet Eleanor and Myra. Two sisters who could pass for white. One chose to embrace her African-American roots and the other hid her ancestry. Only the past could reunite these women and give them a chance at a future. I found the storyline uniquely told and intriguing. I felt like the author took me through the plight of so many women before me who struggled for survival against slavery, segregation and racism. Themes such as respect for our ancestors; family bond; and sisterhood resonate and gave this quick read a lasting impression.
