Volume Two of the dramatic saga of the Lorimer Family
A Legacy may be of great value and still bring bad luck... Although Margaret Lorimer has made her own way as a doctor, she does not at all approve of the ambitions of her beautiful young ward Alexa. Being an opera singer is considered a disreputable career for a young lady. But Alexa has inherited a superb voice from her Italian mother, and is determined to have her way, even if it means travelling abroad. And she has also inherited a legacy from the father she never knew - a legacy which will bring her no happiness.
The Lorimer Legacy is the un-put-downable second volume in the Lorimer series which chronicles the lives and fortunes of this vibrant family from the 1870s to the 1940s.
