The Inheritance of Beauty by Nicole Seitz is a work of fiction based around a married couple who are spending their remaining days in a nursing home. While they are there a mysterious package arrives that takes both Maggie and George back to the days of their childhood, a time they have tried to bury and forget.
I personally would not place the label of Christian Fiction on this book since I didn’t feel it stated strong beliefs in God or Christian faith, but I still enjoyed it. I especially liked Nicole Seitz’s style of writing. She takes her main characters and uses them to help the reader see their present and past circumstances through their daily life and memories from the past. With the memories and inner thoughts of her characters, she weaves the story line. Usually I find myself guessing the climax of the story, but with The Inheritance of Beauty, I was surprised by the outcome. That in itself was a nice change!
If your looking for a book that speaks of love that remains strong even when the beauty of youth has long gone, with intriguing mystery thrown in, then I think this book would be one that you would enjoy.
