Publisher's Summary

Lynn Van Swol still regrets the decision she made 30 years ago to place her daughter up for adoption so she could climb the highest mountains of the world. Frankie Rizzoni is the troubled biological granddaughter Lynn has never known. And Beth Mahoney is a minister's wife with terminal cancer and the only one who knows the relationship between the two. She designs a plan upon her deathbed to bring Lynn and Frankie together, but now, narrating from the afterlife, she must helplessly watch as her legacy threatens to unravel. The Damnable Legacy is a story about both love and survival, exploring the importance of attachment, place, and faith, and asking how far we should go to achieve our goals - and at what cost.

Two Parallel Universes

This story is told through Beth, a pastor's wife who has passed on. Even in death, she questions where she is and what she needs to do to help a young teenage girl, Frankie. She travels back and fourth between two realms.

In one realm, we meet Lynn. Lynn is a climbing instructor who is working side by side with another instructor leading two other climbers. We learn that one of the climbers is in fact the pastor who Beth was married to. We also learn Beth had a divine intervention in setting this up in order to create the connection between Lynn and Frankie.

The other realm consists of Frankie. Frankie is a troubled teenager who is questioning just who she is and where she came from. Beth follows Frankie along her journey and is determined to make sure she is alright. She watches hoping that the two realms will come together.

Jannie Meisberber is an enjoyable narrator. She has a soft, gorgeous British accent. She's clear, articulate and easy on the ears.

The Damnable Legacy

The Damnable Legacy
: G. Elizabeth Kretchmer

A pair of parallel stories that intertwine and weave into a tale that is different from any other I've read/ listened to. There is mystery, intrigue,adventure, suspense, a bit of romance, and even a little supernatural. This kept me listening to find out what is next.

I'd recommend this book for just about anyone.

The narration was well done. The characters were well portrayed. Jannie Meisberger kept the story flowing right along.

“I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.”
