"Heirloom", for me, speaks about real life--it is about the losses we all face in our journeys, but it is also about overcoming the loss, and finding strength when we need it--not just from ourselves and our own inner convictions but accepting the strength offered from others and allowing that help to be a source of healing. Kate grows into her own in "Heirloom" when she understands that others need her, too, and this gives her a sense of purpose. She grows as she discovers that she must fight for what is rightfully hers and while it is a battle she never expected to have, she meets it head on.
Here are two of my favorite reviews from a reader: "I just finished Heirloom and had to tell you how much I LOVED it! I'm kind of sorry I finished it because every page had me wanting to read more. Your characters were so real and your imagery brought everything to life. I can't wait until your next book!"
"I finished it last night. Loved it. I hated that it ended! I want the story to keep going."
I know that you will love the small town feel, the quirky characters, that secrets that Kate discovers about herself....and I will leave the rest to you!
"The Kate Tyler novels" will be a series so watch for more adventures with Kate!
