Legacy: A NovelLegacy: A Novel by Danielle Steel
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I haven't read any of Danielle Steel's books for a very long time, but someone told me that this book was different and it was.  I thoroughly enjoyed it.  It is a story viewed by characters in the present and past and I like those.  One is a young woman who is working on an advanced degree and living with her boyfriend who is an aspiring archeologist.  Here life is like treading water only there is no shore even being looked for.  Suddenly, the boyfriend leaves to direct a dig and she goes home with virtualy nothing.

While reassising her life at her mother's apartment in the city she agrees to help her mother search for an Indian ancestor who marries a marquis and moves to France.  The genealogy project helps her get her bearings and gives her the strength to change to a life of purpose instead of staying on the same treadmill she has been on.
