Book Review - The Inheritance of Beauty by Nicole Seitz

Did you ever have a book that you have been meaning to get around to reading, but had put off cause something more urgent came up?  Seems like that is me all the time anymore - but I recently reorganized my books and made up my mind to include at least one book I have been meaning to read on my weekly list of books-to-be-read.

"The Inheritance of Beauty" by Nicole Seitz is one of those books, and over the weekend I had the pleasure of sitting down and reading this book - Am I Glad I Did!!!!  What a glorious, wonderfully written story this is! 

About The Book:

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 and the ability of true beauty to transcend one's life.

 What a lovely story this is!  I loved the South Carolina setting, I loved the sweet characters, and I loved the element of mystery and intrigue that Nicole Seitz offers into the mesmerizing story that she has crafted.

If you enjoy historical fiction, with a lovely romantic twist, and a little bit of spine-tingling chill - then "The Interitance of Beauty" will be right up your alley!  I highly recomment it!

I received a copy of this book through Thomas Nelson's BookSneeze program for review. I was not compensated for my opinion.
