Legacy is an important topic, too often overlooked in today’s fast paced society. There comes a time in life, as some of the characters from this soul touching outcome of a fourteen authors’ gathering reveal, when we wonder about the end and what would happen to our loved ones after we pass away. That is, if there are any loved ones to worry about. Even the coldest or meanest of hearts can melt in front of this intimidating unknown which will indisputably become real one day: our own death. In one of the short stories, a young lady’s fear of being forgotten rises to obsessive heights as she tries to make a difference in someone else’s life before dying an uncanny, predicted death. In another, an old, scarred man leaves his last mark upon the earth under the form of a well built wall. Other stories tell of parents gone missing in the narrator’s childhood and his or her journey to rediscovering at least one little piece of memory to hold on to and recover the lost past. Some stories are simply demonstrations of peace making with the inevitable. And it is within that straightforward simplicity that we find the deep meaning of legacy.

A remarkable and diverse collection for all tastes with many styles, approaches and profundities, Legacy: An Anthology by various authors earns itself a place within the reader’s heart. Some stories may be eerie, others may spring hope or let peace settle within the soul, while some might just make you fall on your knees in gratitude for the disregarded gifts you’ve been blessed with. Each story shows a different kind of life heritage and how it can come from the unlikeliest of places. The brilliance of the fourteen authors looks back at the reader through the short voyages into people’s lives as they consider their own legacy.
