Legacy And Love
Aunt Ivy’s Cottage by Kristin Harper is a delightfully charming contemporary novel about love and family. It is the second book in the Dune Island series but can be read as a stand-alone.
The novel is about a love that has travelled down the generations and is now passed between three generations as they share time together in the old family house. The love and memories are entwined in the very fabric of the house. It is a house where love and care live.
A casual remark opens up a mystery to be solved. The reader is just as keen as the characters to know the answer.
Life is not always kind. There have been some hard losses but memories and love help with the healing process.
As the house is renovated and restored, this is mirrored in characters’ lives as fractured lives begin to mend.
The characters were warm, realistic and welcoming. Their love reached out, enveloping all including the reader.
Aunt Ivy’s Cottage was a beautiful gentle read that will swell your heart and make you smile.
Legacies are not about money. Legacies are about the love we leave behind.
