Synopsis

A timeless story of familial devotion undermined by deceit and passion and rebuilt by memory.

In 1931, abandoned after their mother's suicide, the young Junan and her sister, Yinan, make a pact never to leave each other. The two girls are inseparable—until Junan enters into an arranged marriage and finds herself falling in love with her soldier husband. When the Japanese invade China, Junan and her husband are separated. Unable to follow him to the wartime capital, Junan makes the fateful decision to send her sister after him. Inheritance traces the echo of betrayal through generations and explores the elusive nature of trust. Reading group guide included.

    Inheritance is a worthwhile read

    If you like stories that include elements of history to provide context and depth, you will love this novel. One can imagine living in that difficult time of change in China and how people survived. Difficult family dynamics and decisions and relationships that are made and broken and the resiliency of the human spirit will make you feel like you have stepped into this as an emphatic observer. If you like understanding complicated family dynamics you will enjoy this novel, guaranteed. A very accurate depiction of expectations and sacrifices made for the sake of family.
