Inheritance by: Natalie Danford

Inheritance by: Natalie Danford is about a young woman who finds the deed to a house in Italy after her father dies of Alzheimers. Luigi was an immigrant who’d moved to America in the 1940’s, who never talked about his homeland or how he’d lived while he was there. In hopes of finding more out about her father, she learns his darkest secret, that possibly changes her view of him forever.

Inheritance had the workings to be a great novel, but fell a few pennies short. For one, I didn’t really connect with any of the characters. At the end of the novel, I found myself attached to Luigi the most, but not enough to really care about him. I think it was all a bit rushed, and the author should’ve taken her time and gave it some more length and depth.

Overall, 5/10
