New novel highlights how family interactions can influence day-to-day life – Benzinga

Paul Zentmyer announces publication of ‘The Legacy’

MADISON HEIGHTS, Va., July 6, 2022 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — Jack Nelson inherits his grandparents’ estate which causes problems with the rest of his family. He settles in the town where he spent many of his summers and begins a new life with his wife in Paul Zentmyer’s new novel “The Legacy: The Nelson Family” (published by Archway Publishing).

Joe Nelson is dying of colon cancer. He has very little time left, which is why he invites his favorite grandson Jack to visit. Joe’s wife died three years earlier, but together, they made a final decision: upon their deaths Jack would inherit everything — and “everything” is a sizeable amount.

Jack has been at odds with most of his family his entire life, except for his grandparents, who were always there to support and encourage him. Jack spent many summers at his grandparents’ house; it felt like home. Now, shockingly, he has been given a centuries-old legacy that he must keep secret from the rest of his family or risk losing everything.

Inheriting his grandparents’ estate changes Jack’s life. He goes from being a visitor to a full time resident of their small Virginia town. He falls in love, realizes the importance of friendship and discovers a purpose for his life that he never expected.

Zentmyer hopes the message readers take from his book is “Live your life your way not according to what society dictates. Be caring and supportive of others.”
