    One thought on “Sarah's Legacy”

    1. One of my favourite themes in literature is women who inherit old houses, so I was pleased to find this Young Adult novel about a mother and daughter who move into a lovely but somewhat decrepit dwelling in New Brunswick. Of course every old house has its treasures, and Sarah finds hers in the attic, a journal written by her great-aunt.

    2. Reviewed by Carrie Spellman for TeensReadTooSarah Gilmore and her mom, Maggie, are poor. Not living on the street, destitute, but living in an apartment without much money for anything other than food and bills. Until one day when what seems like a miracle happens. Maggie's Great Aunt Sarah, whom the younger Sarah has never met, has passed away, and left everything to them. There are only two conditions to the will. The first is that they must live in Aunt Sarah's house until Sarah is done with [...]

    3. This book was dull and pointless. It wasn't the worst book out of the red maples, where soldiers lie and stolen away were definately worst. Sarah's legacy is about a girl and her mom who inherit a house in Nova Scotia or New Brunswick or something and move there from Toronto. That is basically all that happens. She finds her great aunt's journal in the house and reads it. It's boring to read the journal entries every few pages. Sarah's mom falls in love with this guy and Sarah is starting to lik [...]

    4. I really enjoyed reading this book because it has a strong moral and I also learned a few new things while reading this book. I learned a bit more Canadian geography including a name of a town in New Brunswick. This book teaches people that everyone that happens in life happens for a reason and even if you don't get what you expected you have to learn to appreciate and accept what is happening in your life and other's to get that true gift.

    5. I really loved when Stan had come back after what Sarah had said to him at the pool, and he wasn't mad.over I loved the book and I totally recommend reading it.
