Introducing 'The Legacy'

Trevor Belshaw discusses his new novel, The Legacy, which is his first book under the Author’s Reach banner.

*Release date: March 12th, 2021*

The Legacy is the sequel to my Dual Timeline, Family Saga, Unspoken which tells the story of Jessica, a young journalist, and Alice, her 99-year-old great grandmother who has kept a dark secret for 80 years.

In The Legacy, we find out much more about the strained relationships between Jessica and her mother, Nicola, who has a long-standing alcohol problem made worse by her husband’s gambling addiction, her matriarchal grandmother, Martha, who has big plans for the family fortune, and her timid, great aunt Marjorie, who lives in the shadow of her older sister.

Jessica is a mirror image of a young Alice and they share dreadful luck in the type of men they have allowed to become part of their lives. The two share remarkably similar experiences, despite the almost 80-year gap in their ages.

The Legacy.

Where there’s a will there’s a rift.

The Legacy continues the story of Jessica Griffiths and her fractious relationship with her grandmother, Martha, her gambling addicted father and her narcissistic ex, Calvin who refuses to accept that their relationship is over.

Jessica, an aspiring novelist, is writing a book based on her great grandmother’s handwritten memoirs. Still grieving for Alice, she receives a telephone call that will change her life, and her relationship with her family, forever.

During the process she meets Bradley, a handsome young lawyer. Calvin, meanwhile, believes he can work his way back into Jess’s life by fair means or foul.

When Martha, the matriarch, complains that she hasn’t been treated fairly, she puts pressure on her granddaughter to ‘do the right thing.’ Meanwhile, Jessica’s father returns with the loan sharks on his tail.

As Jessica prays that the ‘man curse’ which has plagued the women in her family for generations, has finally been vanquished, she meets the beautiful, calculating, Leonora, a

woman with a secret and a fondness for mischief.
