The weekend I treated myself to A Magical Inheritance was one of the happiest reading weekends of last summer. Strong female characters. A sprinkling of magic. Period costumes. All delightful. But what really kept me hooked were the deliciously dysfunctional family dynamics. It's been a long time since I read an author who captured dysfunctional family dynamics quite as well as she does.
A Magical Inheritance by Krista D. Ball
Amazon Digital Services, 2019
“Miss Elizabeth Knight received an unexpected legacy upon her uncle’s death: a collection of occult books. When one of the books begins talking to her, she discovers an entire world of female occultist history opened to her—a legacy the Royal Occult Society had purposely hidden from the world.
“However, the magic allowing the book to speak to Miss Knight is fading and she must gather a group of female acquaintances of various talents. Together, they’ll need to work to overcome social pressures, ambitious men, and tyrannical parents, all to bring Mrs. Egerton, the book ghost, back.”From the book description on Amazon
What I thought about The Magical Inheritance
Oh my goodness, I do so enjoy Krista D. Ball’s sense of humor. The weekend I treated myself to A Magical Inheritance was one of the happiest reading weekends I experienced last June. Strong female characters. A sprinkling of magic. Period costumes. All delightful. But what really kept me hooked were the deliciously dysfunctional family dynamics. I am really looking forward to the next entry in this series.
