Alison chose to read and review The Inheritance by Elaine Jeremiah


The Inheritance by Elaine Jeramiah

There are all the elements of a really good novel in ‘The Inheritance’, fantastic settings in London and Cornwall, potentially intriguing characters – Kate, devoted to the family farm, and her sister Emma, who feels trapped and escapes to London, and the mystery of what really happened to their mother and to Kate’s one and only love, Steven.

There are also moments when the writing works beautifully and you are really drawn in. However, there were also times when the writing was clunky and awkward and when the plot didn’t quite ring true. I won’t go into too much detail for fear of spoilers, but the mystery surrounding Steven just didn’t seem believable and was wrapped up far too neatly. Also, the way some of the characters spoke, particularly when discussing London, seemed unrealistic. I was also unconvinced by some of the side characters. Would a man on a train really tell you all his personal business after sharing five minutes conversation?

Having said that, this book has great potential. There are just a few things that I felt needed a bit more work to make this the great story that it really could be.

3 out of 5 stars.

  1. A well balanced review, with good pointers for the author where improvements could be made – as an author I always welcome constructive criticism and advice. Best of all no spoilers in this review. So many times books have been spoiled for me by the reviewer giving a synopsis of the whole plot. Love the cover and the title. This could be the kind of novel I enjoy.
