Margie’s Comments:

My Daughter’s Legacy by Mindy Starns Clark and Leslie Gould is an excellent book! I loved the story, the characters, and the unique style of the writing. As the story went back and forth between the historical and contemporary settings, I couldn’t tell which author wrote what. This is truly a good writing duo. While moving back and forth between the two stories is confusing to some readers, I have always enjoyed the stories even more. This book did not disappoint. I highly recommend My Daughter’s Legacy.
