Book Review - The Parker Inheritance

The Parker Inheritance

About the Book
When Candice finds a letter in an old attic in Lambert, South Carolina, she isn't sure she should read it. It's addressed to her grandmother, who left the town in shame. But the letter describes a young woman. An injustice that happened decades ago. A mystery enfolding the letter-writer. And the fortune that awaits the person who solves the puzzle.

So with the help of Brandon Jones, the quiet boy across the street, she begins to decipher the clues. The challenge will lead them deep into Lambert's history, full of ugly deeds, forgotten heroes, and one great love; and deeper into their own families, with their own unspoken secrets. Can they find the fortune and fulfill the letter's promise before the answers slip into the past yet again?

My Take on the Book
This was a powerful book that really brings racism into the limelight. You get transported back to the 1950's and see the world through the eyes of Candice and Brandon. The book is true and real and lets the reader see the reality of the time. For me, as a father, this was a great book that really allowed me to share this time in history with my kids. I am so glad that this was written and that it is made for a younger reader to understand. On top of the historical and current importance, there also was a great mystery that you are challenged to figure out which made the book even more enjoyable to read.
