The Inheritance Summary

The Inheritance will appeal to readers who enjoy experiencing another time and place through the eyes of attractive and lively characters. The novel offers chapters of fast-moving adventure contrasted with more contemplative, slowpaced chapters that develop the relationship between Miguel de Roxas, the nineteen-year-old medical student, and Veronica (Vron) Faber, the accomplished daughter of Bartholomaeus Faber, the Swiss bookseller and printer.
