The Legacy

North Carolina native, Cisely Matthews has seen and suffered much in her twenty-two years of life, and she has the scars to prove it. When amazing blessings come to her, she wonders if she will ever feel worthy enough to deserve them.

Australian-born Ingo Kelly is thrown for an emotional loop when he visits his aunt in Utah and meets Cisely for the first time. He falls for her hard and fast. But getting her to accept his love is a challenge he is more than willing to take on.

Adagio St. John is Ingo's best friend and the two are as close as brothers. When Adagio travels to Utah from his home in Italy to attend Ingo and Cisely's wedding, he is overjoyed that his friend has found happiness with such an amazing woman. He hopes he can find the same happiness one day and end the loneliness he struggles with on a daily basis. There are prospects aplenty, but none of the shallow beauties can capture his heart.

When love does finally come to Adagio, will he allow himself to embrace it or continue to go it alone?

What Readers are Saying

“It's a blessing to read a story that is well thought out and filled with promise. Your characters experience life unique to them but no matter what befalls them, they never give up. We need more books like this. In today's era it is so easy for people to experience bad things and let those things change them into bad people that inflict the same pain on others. People need to be reminded that you are a product of what you experience this is true, but you are also made up of the choices you make in response to what you have been through. We all make mistakes but that doesn't mean you have to give up and give in. As long as you breathe, want to and then choose to you can always change. God is just waiting for the want to be there. Here I am, running off at the mouth like a star struck teenager LOL.”

“This is the most captivating read I have had for a good while. I couldn't put it down.”

“Jewel Adams has written a wonderful book that has intertwined many story lines. Just when you think you know where she is going with a story line, she fools you and the story takes an unexpected turn. You had better have a tissue box next to you also. There are several times in the story that you will cry. Jewel has touched my heart in several places by hitting very close to home with more than one story line. She has shown us how through trials and tribulations we can come to learn unconditional love, and it can help us learn to forgive, not only ourselves, but others as well, bringing us joy, peace of mind, and helping us find our own true self-worth.”

“This is an awesome novel. I laughed, I cried and cried some more. I couldn't put this book down. Mrs. Adams did a wonderful job of detailing true and unconditional love!”

“All I have to say is that this book was a great read. It made me cry, it made me think, and made me love romance. Please buy this book. You would not regret it.”

“This a wonderful book. I thought it would be your average quick story, but it is actually a beautiful story of belief in self, God, transitions, love, jealousy, and forgiveness. It will make you laugh and cry and be thankful for the blessings you take for granted. This is a story of a full lifetime of commitment and it was very refreshing. This is a great value as well. It is very true to what we live thru in this real game called life. I hope you will take time to explore a really unique and different approach to an interracial relationship.”

"I have laughed, cried....lots of crying, rejoiced and actually prayed for the characters of this book in times of great joy and profound sorrow. Thank you so much for sharing the beautiful gift of this book with us. Your storytelling was so masterful I couldn't hold back my tears in front of friends and co-workers. I haven't had a book arouse the thoughts and feelings I felt reading your book. God bless you sister you are a true talent."
