What can happen when you slip through time? What events would you most like to change?
How would you feel if you were at the centre of something so outrageous that you would do anything to change history?
Inheritance is a powerful and moving book, with a message for us all. The story is focused through Nic who has been left in the care of her grandfather at the remote family property in the depths of Australia. She is feeling misplaced and unusually for her unable to make friends at the local school, because of her name.
‘It’s because you’re a Mitchell,’ says Thor.
Between them they uncover a most dreadful event at Yaratgil ( the family home), linked to her ancestors and to Thor’s.
Nic’s mother had died when she was born, but Nic discovers that travelling back through time is something they have in common.
Carole uses her expertise in research and historical facts (some well-hidden) to uncover a dark and shocking secret that haunts the land, and the people who live there.
It’s an intriguing story and holds the reader from beginning to end.
