After a chance meeting at the age of sixteen, Sam leaves behind her father and her reformed alcoholic mother and moves to Northern Ireland to set up home with a man she barely knows. The two of them continue to practice the religion they were both raised in but scratch below the surface and life’s not what it appears. This story documents her battle with depression, abuse, the aftermath of suicide, a troubled marriage, and most of all her disastrous involvement with the Jehovah’s Witness church. It’s a journey that cost her dearly and as many of her readers have already discovered, Not Your Legacy is far more than just a series of real life events. It retells the story of one woman’s metamorphosis of mind, body and soul.

On September 21st 2012 Vitali Nevski and Artyom Novichonok discover the comet ISON just beyond Jupiter’s orbit. Heralded as the comet of the century all eyes are upon ISON as it blazes a trail through our solar system – and it’s not only humans who are spellbound by its beauty. Having entrusted the training of the newly appointed Karma to Sister Sarah Arellano, God can now focus on much more important things – such as the newly discovered comet that conceals an ancient secret. But the human race is no longer simple and neither is the newly appointed Karma. As an ex-con with a troubled past the new Karma is more than a handful for Sister Sarah. His own troubled history as well as the complexity of his first three cases causes him to question the validity of the entire set up. What right does he have as Karma to kill someone for killing someone? And why does God allow bad things to befall good people when he has the power to prevent it? If God wasn’t so engrossed in trying to stop China and the US from laying claim to HIS comet, he might have put those issues to rest. But time and unforeseen occurrence befall us all…even God.

5.0 out of 5 stars A unique book 2 Aug 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I’ve read quite a number of books over the years and this one is certainly one of the most unique reads I’ve had in a while. Just by having God, Gabriel, Satan and Karma as characters was enough to peak my interest. The story weaves in and out of several plot strands, which had me wondering if it was going to bog down the flow of the story. I’m very pleased to say that it doesn’t and I enjoyed the story immensely. This is Samantha Wright’s strongest book to date, at times has hints of Pratchett and Adams. I can thoroughly recommend this book and I look forward to the author’s next book

Can Lorna and Daniel piece their family back together again? Or is it time to move on and make a new life with what they have left, out in the wilds of Stamford Brook?
