I really, really liked the premise of this book. While the plot and resulting action didn’t kick in as fast as I’d normally like, I did enjoy The Hidden Legacy in the end.
The character development of Ellen was done very well and it worked really well to have Ellen be a divorced mother. It is beautifully written and thought provoking, although the time jumping did slow the novel down and was even a little bit confusing at times. I’ll certainly look out for GJ Minett in future. Great debut.
