Inhaltsangabe zu „Family Inheritance“ von Terri Ann Leidich

Winner of a 2015 Benjamin Franklin Silver Award for Popular Fiction. Called to the bedside of their dying mother, three sisters reluctantly return to their childhood home in northern Minnesota. What should be a reunion of love and warmth is tainted by the ghosts of their childhood; their parents' farm is a place of painful memories. With their mother in a coma, Helene leaves behind a shell of a marriage in Atlanta---her country club lifestyle not at all what it seems. Alice has finally fled an abusive husband but is afraid her failing courage will put her children in danger. Waking up beside yet another stranger, Suzanne can no longer deny how an alcohol addiction may destroy everything she's worked for---an addiction that barely masks the terrible wounds on her soul. They may have escaped the farm, but Helene, Alice, and Suzanne find they are still perpetuating a cycle of pain, abuse, alcoholism, anger, fear, and bitterness. Seeing themselves through each other's eyes, the sisters are forced to confront their demons. Will they be able to tread through the wreckage of the past to create lives filled with hope, love, and triumph?

    Which imprint does a dysfunctional family leave on you and can you ever escape the feelings and memories of your childhood? When their mother die, the three sisters Helene, Alice and Suzanne meet again after years without contact. Convinced that the others had managed to flee from their past, they avoided each other not assuming that each of them also as an adult continues to live within small boundaries of fear, inferiority complex and the dream of a better life. Terri Ann Leidich’s novel is a portrait of a family nobody wants to live in. It is the combination of despicable circumstances, weak characters and bad luck that sets in motion a development from which the girls cannot run away. The author really succeeded in drawing authentic characters whose story is absolutely convincible and at the same time frightening. Yet, this is a reality for many people and as such a good example where not looking too close can cause serious problems and leave people alone in despair. At some points it was very hard going on reading due to what the characters have to go through. At others the novel provides hope for everybody who does not see a way out of their life. All in all, a very touching story which leaves you thinking about it some time after closing the book.
