Item Description...
Noah Stephens is a minister's son, being primed to become his father's successor. Morgan Foster is the daughter of a successful but questionable entrepreneur, and stands to inherit her mother's illegal drug distribution empire. The two young people are products of completely different backgrounds, but both long to pursue their own agendas and escape the lives their parents have planned for them.

As a romantic relationship blossoms between the two, Morgan keeps Noah in the dark about her family's business. Noah, too, remains undecied about entertaining the ministry, but a family tragedy leads him back to his purpose and puts him on the path to preach God's Word.

Exciting Legacies  Sep 26, 2008
I really enjoyed this novel. It was my first time reading one of Ms. Lark's books, and I do plan on checking out others she has written. The storyline was amazing; I loved the way she captured the "family business" by allowing us to see how emotionless and ruthless one has to be in this business. Morgan and Noah's romance was adorable and without them becoming intimate, helped them to see the real heart of each other. The twists towards the end were page-turning and believable. I wish there was a part 2! Great read!!
Romeo & Juliet With A Modern, Urban Twist  Aug 31, 2008
Morgan Daniels-Foster comes from money - and not just any old kind of money either: the money she comes from has money of its own to burn. Such is the life that's been provided to her by the inimitable Jernell Foster, matriarch of the Foster family empire, whose interests seemingly span the globe, commanding equal amounts of respect and fear. With stunning looks to match her high-powered family connections, Morgan is more than ready to strike out on her own as she begins a new life as a freshman at nearby Bradley University. Despite all the privileges that her affluent upbringing have afforded her, though, Morgan still longs for two very important things she's never been able to obtain: a strong sense of self, and, of course, true love.

Noah Stephens has been fitted for the cloth for as long as he can remember. The son of an influential minister, his path toward joining the family ministry appears set. Growing up without the typical advantages of a family with considerable material success, Noah's empathetic heart remains fixed on doing the best he can to serve the Lord by being a blessing to those in need...of course, his heart also longs to find his own way of going about fulfilling his divine destiny in life - as well as learning precisely what that destiny is. Going into his freshman year at Bradley University, Noah seeks the answers to these questions, at the same time discovering more about the nature of his true self - and his family's real past.

When their widely divergent paths serendipitously cross, neither Morgan nor Noah are prepared for the onslaught of emotion, pain, and drama soon to follow. Unable to fight the powerful attraction between them, the two star-crossed lovers remain bound to one another as they each face unimaginable strife, shock, and ultimate loss in the wake of the unearthing of long-held family secrets. Only time will tell if their bond is strong enough to survive the coming trials that will test their very souls.

The follow up effort to her highly successful debut, Keeping Misery Company, The Legacies promises to be just as much of a hit with Michelle Larks' ever-growing legion of readers. Masterful storyteller that she is, in Legacies Larks has re-fashioned the ages-old Romeo & Juliet tale with a modern-day, urban twist. Brought together by forces greater than themselves, Noah and Morgan both contend with seemingly unending family drama and despair, and the two youths, in turn, rely on a strength that exceeds their own in order to cope with the incessant cycles of tribulation. With each new startling revelation, the reader will begin to wonder just how the young lovers are able to remain the picture of relative calm during the storm while everyone else around them loses their minds - and nearly everything else - as times grow increasingly tough.

Also, enough cannot be said about Larks' incomparable ability to weave an intricate, multi-layered tale, perfectly preserving suspense while tantalizing readers with just enough heat to keep them turning page after page, eagerly anticipating what's to come next. In addition, she's able to humanize a salacious tale of greed, power, and sex by relating the real effects of their consequences on the hearts and minds of those caught up in their mix. Such ability is truly a gift, and not one that many authors both possess and wield so skillfully.

The Legacies, rightly so, will go down as yet another instant classic from a proven author whose time has truly come. No matter how many fans Michelle Larks has won over with her writing efforts thus far, those numbers will quickly dwarf in comparison to the soon-to-be-converted as her literary legend continues to grow.

The Legacies by Michelle Larks

Morgan and Noah are from two different worlds; Morgan's family business is extremely lucrative and affords her a posh lifestyle while Noah comes from humble beginnings. Yet the two of them meet and realize that they have more in common than they both think when they find out that they are both living out the dreams of their parents and not their own. Morgan and Noah's relationship is put to the test when Morgan can no longer keep her family secrets to herself.

The Legacies kept me turning pages, wanting to see how the drama of the story would unfold. There were a few storylines that I would have liked to see developed more, but that in no way took away from the quality of the story! The Legacies is a definite book for your library collection!

(4.5 Stars) A Great Read!  Aug 15, 2008
Morgan Daniels-Foster was excited about going away for college. She knew this would be a challenge since she has been groomed for the family business since she was born. Morgan grew up in a family that kept to themselves. They rarely dealt with people outside of the family. Every single detail of Morgan's future was planned for her. That was until she met Noah Oliver Stephens.

Noah's future was basically the same except his life was headed towards the pulpit. His dad was a minister and his mom just knew he was going to follow in his dad's footsteps. Noah had other plans, and just didn't want to break his parents' hearts. When the two freshmen crossed paths by an unfortunate circumstance, their future plans changed and tragedy hit both of there families. Two young people with different lifestyles fall in love. Both have a strong faith in God, but will their upbringing push them further apart or pull them closer together?

I thoroughly enjoyed how Michelle Larks developed the main characters Noah & Morgan. Through their lives, you could see how they matured from the first time they met when Morgan was seventeen and Noah was eighteen. As they matured in age, you could read how their dialogue changed. Every time you would think that the plot was becoming predictable, it would change and make the plot a lot more interesting. The Legacies was indeed a great read.

The Burden of Legacy  Aug 8, 2008
As THE LEGACIES begins, readers are introduced to Noah and Morgan, two very different characters, who meet by chance, but share remarkably similar burdens. Both are about to embark on their freshman year of college and feel bound to follow the path their parents have plotted for them. Noah is the son of a pastor and has spent all of his life deeply involved in the church. The expense of college is a strain on the working-class family, but Noah's biggest pressure comes from the expectation that he should follow in his father's footsteps and pursue the ministry after graduation. Morgan, on the other hand, has always been pampered. So much so that she arrives at Bradley University in a limousine. She, too, is expected to follow in the footsteps of a parent. In her case, upon graduation, she is expected to take the helm of the mysterious, yet less than savory, family business. Fate causes the two to cross paths and a romance quickly emerges. As the story develops and Noah and Morgan try to find their way, it becomes apparent that nothing is as it seems on the surface.

Michelle Larks has crafted a thoughtful tale about the burden of legacy, and the characters in THE LEGACIES demonstrate how people are often compelled to carry the weight of family history throughout their lives like unwanted baggage. Christian themes are woven into the story like a whisper; a refreshing change from the sometimes too "in-your-face" preachy approach that has become common in this genre. As Noah and Morgan struggle to discover the plan for their lives, it is easy to relate to their joys, difficulties, and mistakes. Even the secondary characters were multi-dimensional, and with few exceptions, they were all more complex than they originally appeared. The complexities of the characters, coupled with the constant uncovering of new layers of truth, led to a story that was engrossing,well-paced, and full of twists and turns. Ultimately, THE LEGACIES is a moving story that reminds readers that we are bigger than the generational blessings (and curses) that follow us, if only we allow God to work freely in our lives.
