'Legacies' is a beautiful story based around a group of evacuees who are sent to Wales during the Second World War. There they are sent to new homes and family’s and our young Emily and William are sent to live with the dreamless and cold Lady Billington.
Not everything is grey though as they meet and befriend several townsfolk, including the former writer and bookstore owner Mrs Brown.
Once Emily and her fellow evacuees discover that Mrs Brown still owns the bookstore, they are eager for her to read to them as they haven’t heard a story since their parents left for war.
But Mrs Brown has her own past and hurt going back to her own son in the first war.
When an accident causes Emily to lose what’s most important to her-her sight-she refuses to believe in hope and use her imagination any longer. Thinking that now she can’t see, she has no vision. Writing and playing the piano is her everything and suddenly in one moment, they’re taken from her.
With Lady Billington breathing down her neck to just take her lot in life and get on with it and with William, Mrs Brown and the Evacuees trying to rally her hopes and dreams again through the story of Nehemiah.
Will Emily and the others be able to bring the war-torn town back together and rebuild the broken down places?
