Inheritance by Christopher Paolini
Thorn in My Heart & Fair is the Rose by Liz Curtis Higgs
Set in Scotland in the late 1700's, we have a story filled with love, jealousy, deceitfulness, trickery and TONS of drama. Jamie who with the aide of his mother cheats his twin brother out of his inheritance of the family farm. The brother as you can imagine isn't too fond of this and wants to kill Jamie. Jamie runs away to his uncle's house to not only have a safe place to hid, but conveniently find a bride. He immediately falls in love with the younger sister Rose, while the older sister Leana immediately falls in love with Jamie. You guessed it, let the drama begin. If you know the story of Jacob, Leah and Rachel from the Bible, you will pretty much know what happens. Higgs adds her own twists to the story though, so there are a few surprises. I just finished reading the second book Fair is the Rose. The drama continues. Just when you think all the conniving is done there is a whole new book full of trickery. I can't really tell you what happens in the second book since it will give away what happens in the first. Going to order the third one from the library today!
What books do you suggest???
