This book is inspired by the novel Walls of Babylon by K Le Veque What a wonderful love story , based around a few hundred years into the future from the original novel , around the time of Napoleon It s touching , emotional and amusing too One you ll really enjoy I received an advance copy of this book and chose to submit a review The story After all that, he knew nothing about the lady Not even had name The only information she d given was that her estate sat nearby There were several homes close enough for the occupants to see his lantern Any one of them could be hers He should chase after her and demand to know her name When the story starts, Rebecca has already lost her brother to the war Seeing his widow, Lady Daphne crying for him every night has made Rebecca take a vow She has decided never to marry a man in uniform, a soldier She does not want to ever experience a broken heart, fear the loss of a beloved Set in Yorkshire, England in the year 1815, Love s Legacy brings to you a beautiful story of Lady Rebecca Sumerville and Captain Camden Le Bec It s a story set in the past, with Lords and ladies, beautiful balls, exotic locations and amongst them the birth of a pious and a beautiful love story.He did not wear his soldier s uniform as he had on previous occasions but a pang of upset raced through Rebecca all through the same How could Phoebe have designs on such a man after what had happened to their brother But matters of a heart are strange and when she meets Camden, she falls in love against her will.RelationshipsEven though it s novella, the story has explored some beautiful relationships Between two sisters, women, past and present and with every relationship it has promised a beautiful future This is the best thing I have love about this novel A clean, positive read.No Tame DameOne of the greatest fear, I have, and picking up a historical novel is that of a swooning maiden One with a ready set of smelling salts But in this novel, Rebecca nor did her twin sister, Phoebe have this problem Both are full of life and spirit I know exactly where they are standing along with the men in the society For a long time nothing happened then figure emerge from the shadows Are you mad Gee not know the dangers of travelling at night Alone Even though the author has kept the proprieties that were followed during that time, for example suitable chaperones etc, still she has managed to give a lot of spark to the female protagonists.The hero, Camden, holds on his own coming out as a sensitive yet a very strong character Since this is such a short novella, there is not much I do without giving spoilers, but those who love a short historical read, must definitely read this novel.Check out the reasoning for the star rating I love these de Wolfe Pack books All based on Kathryn Le Veque s The Wolfe, my very favorite book Loves Legacy, by Amanda MarielDrawn like a moth to its light, Rebecca Summerfield is fascinated by both the light and the mystery that surrounds the ruins of Babylon Castle Rebecca immerses herself in the solitude of its walls thinking of the mystery of the original owners lives On one of her visits, she runs into

and her fascination with Babylon Castle, peaks his own interest with the ruins He decides to stay and do some renovations He also decides he should look into the mystery of the ruins This also provides him an excuse to stick around and get to know Ms Summerfield There is an immediate attraction however, both Camden and Rebecca reject it for different reasons Rebecca, upon meeting Camden,

the castle s original occupants But once they realize that something has bloomed, Rebecca ends the relationship She is not willing to have any permanent bond to a military man Just what is the mystery of the ruin Or will it drive them further apart The author Amanda Mariel does a very good job with her character development Both Rebecca and Camden s characters are very well written Her story carefully highlights the social s of the era At the same time, Mariel takes liberties with the creativity of a wonderfully imaginative storyline, and brings her readers along for the ride Well worth the investment of your time I give this novella five stars, mostly for its creativity.
