The Inheritance

By Marianne Perry

Historical fiction | Paperback, Hardback, eBook


The Inheritance tells the story of a family disintegrating from conflicting loyalties in Calabria, southern Italy. Set from 1897 to 1913, the region was subject to earthquakes; the land harsh and poverty the norm. Superstition clashed with religion and a class system ruled the people. Calabria is the perfect backdrop for the tragedy that unfolds in The Inheritance. Caterina is an atypical woman and The Inheritance chronicles her life from birth to young womanhood. Born with an inheritance of loss into a society that has predetermined what she can and cannot do, she vows to live a life of her choosing. Caterina refuses to allow the limits of her gender, the constraints of her class and the demands imposed by those in power to stand in her way. Caterina reminds steadfast in her commitment to become the woman she imagines. Her decisions ignite conflicts and fuel a chain of events that result in direct consequences for all whose path she crosses.
