Harriet Darlingabout this book: Surprisingly enough, my inspiration for this story was a museum house in Elk Grove Park in Sacramento, which I passed often. Each time I went by it, the story got clearer and clearer in my mind.
I like to think most Young Adults, and even those somewhat younger and older, will enjoy the book. Also, people who are interested in life in the early part of the century (you'll find out why when you read it).
HERITAGE is the story of a dilapidated old house inherited by 14-year-old Karen Christopher's mother. The house appears to be falling apart when they first see it, after they've moved the small family far from the home they've always known. It isn't long, though, before Karen receives a surprise that keeps her interested in repairing the house. But her mother isn't so happy; working the night shift at the local hospital, and feeding and caring for her three children while remodeling the old house, keeps her from enjoying her life.
From Reviews: "This is a sweet little ghost story for those who want a bit of the supernatural, but without an angry or vengeful spirit, and with a happy ending."
