The Granville Legacy is the third book in the House of Grace Trilogy by Patricia M. Osborne. It is not a genre I would normally choose, but I am so glad that I made an exception in this case. Each of the novels is excellent and the trilogy should be read in order. As the story progresses the Granville family grows and the characters are beautifully drawn and developed.
Can George step into his grandfather's shoes?
Assuming his title as Lord Granville is no easy task for coal miner’s son, George Gilmore.George doesn’t possess the late Lord Granville’s ruthless streak but what happens if his loved ones are threatened? How can he support his mother, Grace, through her devasting loss? Will the family rally round? Can George step into his grandfather’s shoes?
Journey through the 80s in this family saga unravelling heartbreak, family conflict, romance, fashion, and much more.
'The Granville Legacy' is the final book in the House of Grace trilogy.
This third and final part of the House of Grace trilogy is beautifully written. In The Granville Legacy, author Patricia M. Osborne completes a literary triumphwith the finesse and aplomb her readers have come to expect.
As always, life does not go smoothly for the family and not only Grace but also George and Alice have struggles to overcome as well as happy times to enjoy.
The characters are beautifully drawn and eminently believable. However, I did find the deeply close relationship between George and his former teacher a slight stretch of the imagination and the speed with which George's relationship with Mandy developed was surprising, although it did contrast well with Alice's marriage. To be honest, these are extremely small niggles with a such marvellous novel.
I thoroughly enjoyed The Granville Legacy. it provides a most satisfying conclusion to The House of Grace trilogy and I highly recommend it. I am sure it would appeal not only to those who enjoy family sagas, but also those who enjoy romance novels, historical novels and everybody who enjoys a great story.
