The Wentworth Legacy Kindle Cover Revised

The Wentworth Legacy is now on Kindle Unlimited. Check it out here.

Spencer Wentworth’s carefree life does not prepare him when he inherits a huge fortune with an attached responsibility. When the stock market collapses in 1929, the family fortune suffers a huge loss and is in the brink of bankruptcy. He has to find a quick solution before he loses everything. An opportunity arises when he meets Sally Sinclair, an only child of a wealthy new family in town and is willing to marry her to save his legacy at the cost of losing the woman he loves, Lorna Beckett, an orphan and a friend of his sister.

“This plot-driven, emotionally complex tale effectively details Spencer’s determination to sacrifice his own happiness in favor of his family’s success. . . With harrowing intensity, Morgan also illustrates the pervasive anxiety just before a disastrous era hit. Overall, she delivers an engrossing love story while also depicting surprising burdens borne by New York’s wealthiest families during the late 1920s. An engaging tale of a young man’s coming-of-age that will appeal to fans of complicated family sagas.”Kirkus Reviews

What was the inspiration for your recent novel, “The Wentworth Legacy”?

I’ve been asked a few times about my inspiration for “The Wentworth Legacy” and so here it is.

cropped-wentworth_front-e14775196619241.jpg

When we moved to Long Island in 1971, I was exposed to the life of the old money. My mother-in-law had remarried after her husband died to a member of what I considered the upper class of the North Shore of Long Island. As such, I was lucky to see some of the homes of the wealthy families of the North Shore which somehow got into the pages of my book. I came to dine at Piping Rock Club in Locust Valley and Colony Club in New York, both are exclusive country clubs for the old money. No, my husband and I were not members of those clubs although he was a member of the Knickerbocker Club in New York. My mother-in-law was a member of both Piping Rock and Colony.

I saw and heard stories about the life above and below stairs from people around me. It was both fascinating and intimidating at first but as the years went on, I learned to be comfortable with the new aspect of my married life. It was a far cry from where I came from – a small town in the Philippines.

We are often asked if we are related to J.P. Morgan. We are not. My husband said they came on different boats. People often wondered why my husband knew so many old money in the community. My husband’s parents were not rich although I sensed his grandmother was. They were comfortable but their social standing was far above most of the people I knew.

So, the idea of writing a book about the old money came from being around some of them. This time, the North Shore in “The Wentworth Legacy”, next time, the South Shore in “?????”. Stay tuned.

An urgent telegram from his family’s attorney to come home immediately interrupts Spencer’s carefree life in England in 1927. Spencer A Wentworth, a scion of an old wealthy banking family of the New York Gold Coast in Long Island, returns from a three-year Grand Tour with a big surprise waiting for him that he is not prepared to handle. Thus begins a series of events putting pressure on his personal life. With the stock market about to collapse, he can lose everything including Wentworth Hall, his ancestral home which he was determined to save at all cost even if it means losing the only woman he loves.

 

Until next time. Stop and smell the roses.
