Therese Jennings cannot abide the thought of owning slaves. When her widowed mother inherits a plantation, Therese flees to Civil War Richmond, where she works as a governess by day and tends to wounded soldiers at night. But when trouble befalls her family, can she reconcile her obligations with her beliefs? And will love-whether with an old beau or a handsome new suitor-ever fit in her broken world?
Virginia, present day
Nicole Talbot's life is back on track after years of substance abuse. Home from college for the summer, she's finally ready to share a shocking secret, one that raises new questions about a traumatic childhood experience. But when facts she uncovers cast doubt on her family's legacy, she must risk all that she's gained-her fresh start, her family's trust, and her growing relationship with a new man-to unlock the secrets of the past.
My Thoughts:
My Daughter's Legacy by Clark and Gould is one of the best books I've read this year to date.  The authors have given readers the perfect blend of history and romance blending past historical and contemporary story lines.  The authors incorporated historical details, the theme of family legacy, tender romance, and a bit of mystery.  The move from past to present day story was fluid.  I absolutely could not put this book down!
The emotion from one of our nation's most painful times in history coupled with the contemporary story of recovery and restoration from addiction drew me into this story and wouldn't let me go.  While this book is the third book in the Cousins Of The Dove series, it can be read as a stand-alone.  This one is keeper shelf material for sure!
