Item Description...
Cousins Amanda, Sophie, and Fanny Broadmoor are as close as sisters, but when their grandfather dies, the terms of his will just might destroy their bond. Seventeen-year-old Fanny has never put much stock in the conventions of society. In fact, she has given her heart to Michael, the family boat-keeper. But when she receives a surprising inheritance, she discovers just how oppressive society can be... and that she may be trusting the wrong people.

Dare she follow her heart and risk going against her family? What if she loses everything she's ever known? It all comes down to one choice: What does Fanny Broadmoor want her legacy to be?

Two Great Authors - Double the Pleasure!  May 29, 2008
Set in 1897, two masters of Inspirational and American history, Tracie Peterson and Judith Miller, enter the world of elegance, opulence, and bitter family rivalries in Book number one of the Broadmoor Legacy. The story centers around three cousins, Amanda, Sophie, and Fanny Broadmoor who are as close as sisters until their grandfather dies, and the terms of his will causes repercussions and bitter rivalry within the family which could sever their precious bond.

The story while centering around the youngest cousin Fanny gives good insight and background to several other members of the family (not all of them likeable). Fanny who was closest to her grandparents, after being orphaned at the age of ten, was also the most down to earth in spite of living an indulgent life with her grandparents. Spending much of her time on the island at Broadmoor Castle (situated in the Thousand Islands on the St. Lawrence River of upper New York) Fanny was more at home out of doors fishing with her best friend and secret love Michael Atwell, than in the ballrooms mingling with society's rich and famous of that era.

*** The authors, after a short prologue showing Fanny to be the most optimistic and naïve of the three cousins; having returned home from school to find her beloved grandfather dying. After his passing the bulk of the estate was divided in thirds. One third each to his two surviving sons; Fanny's Uncles Jonas and Quincy, and one third going to Fanny, only child of the third son, her father, the deceased Langley Broadmoor. As clearly detailed by the authors, Fanny's inheritance did not sit well with her avariciously and power hungry Uncle Jonas who was unfortunately, as the eldest son, appointed as her guardian.

The naivety and trust Fanny holds is clearly defined as her uncle Jonas begins his manipulations to gain absolute control of Fanny's inheritance. Fanny was pretty much clueless as to the extremes her uncle would go to achieve his own selfish ends, especially in so far as trying to sink Fanny's relationship and future dreams of a life with her best friend and love, Michael Atwell, who was employed as the family's boat keeper. The question arose, would Fanny follow her heart or bow to society dictates while being manipulated by her uncle?

In keeping the adventure high, and knowing he needs money to gain permission to even ask for Fanny's hand in marriage Michael accepts a deal and the funds Uncle Jonas loans him as the grub stake money he needed to go off and search for gold in the Yukon. Uncle Jonas is hoping that with Michael gone, he could easily maneuver Fanny's affections in the right direction; towards a man that Jonas can manipulate while still controlling Fanny's wealth.

As the authors fleshed out the three cousins, the reader sees the three diverse personalities emerge and their bond and apparent love for one another. But now, no longer carefree children, would life's realities interfere with that love, or would family loyalties and jealousy break their bond of friendship?

Book one of the Broadmoor Legacy is a terrific Americana historical set in the 1890's era of the rich and famous. The three Broadmoor cousins' personalities are diverse enough to offer highly anticipated story lines as we anxiously await Fanny and Michael's uncertain future. Although very historical in nature the underlying inspirational theme is beautifully portrayed but in a completely un-preachy way. It's always a treat to read Tracie Peterson and/or Judith Miller, but with this collaboration the reader gets a treat with double the pleasure.

I can't help feeling that the plot line of this novel has been done too often. I read several chapters and found that I had no reason to give time to yet another story of the beautiful orphan heiress, who is at the mercy of a greedy guardian, and, of course, she is in love with a handsome man who is, again, of course, "beneath her." I've read it all before and though I liked it the first time, not so much the hundredth. There is no reason to eagerly anticipate the sequels.
Not recommended  Apr 26, 2008
I'm sorry to say that I am not satisfied with this story line. It says historical fiction, and there is no historical information along with the fictional story. The characters and story line are immature. There is very limited Christianity in the characters. The characters are either "high class" or "low class". Very poor. No depth. The only good thing I would say about this book is it is nicely written. But the content is poor.
Great Historical Fiction  Feb 23, 2008
This was a wonderful story. I especially liked that it was set in the area of the Thousand Islands, in New York. I traveled there several times and recognized the names of several landmarks in the book. The author's did a wonderful job of describing the landscape of the area.
As for the storyline, I found it delightful. It gave insight into the hopes and dreams of high society women. This was historical fiction at its best.
Ah, to be a Broadmoor...  Jan 5, 2008
I was apprehensive when I picked up this book. While I have LOVED Tracie Peterson's books, The Lights of Lowell series (also co-authored by Miller) was truly a chore to get through. I didn't enjoy it at all. So I entered this new world of Upstate New York high society as a very skeptical outsider.

My problem with Lights of Lowell series was the depth of the lead characters. I didn't feel like I KNEW them and, what I did know about them I wasn't too impressed with.

This series, though... I adored the new leading lady, Fanny Broadmoor. She is very much a victim of her family. Her mother dies in childbirth, her father takes his own life because he cannot handle his heartache, and her grandparents (who shared in raising her after her mother's death and fully took over 11 yrs later when her father dies) within years of each other just under a year before she turns 18. The authors let you get to know Fanny in a way that made you love her. You knew her feelings, you knew WHY she felt them... she was a great heroine- both strong and weak, both wise and naive- you BELIEVE that a young lady like this truly existed.

As a beloved Grandaughter treated more as a daughter, she is left her father's third of the vast Broadmoor inheritance leaving her eldest uncle, Jonas, furious and scheming. Her other uncle, Quincy, too preoccupied with this charity doesn't bregrudge his niece but fails to see what his brother is up to.

Fanny is in love with one of the family servants, Michael, who lives on the family island (one of the Thousand Islands). Michael leaves to strike his fortune in order to win approval from her guardian, Uncle Jonas, to marry her. Jonas schemes and schemes different ways to take Fanny's portion and I don't want to spoil the book with details...

Throughtout the novel you read of a close bond between the youngest cousins, Fanny, Amanda, and Sophie. You care about all three of them. I am excited to see how the 2nd book is written. With this book not yet concluded, will Fanny remain the lead? Or will her story become a secondary story while Amanda or Sophie become the star?

This book does not contain the excitement and suspense that I feel when reading Peterson's books. Sure, there is some intrigue, definitely good verses evil- but not sense of adventure I feel when embarking on the journey of her other characters in other books. The Broadmoor world has a different kind of intrigue which certainly drew me in.

What a delightful way to begin a spellbinding saga... In a way this book reminds of of Lori Wicks "The Hawk and the Jewell." Not the story itself (and Fanny is certainly more likeable than Sunny) but the way the lead is simply thrust into a sitution beyond her control... Well done, Ladies. You have written a fine book.
