Loss, legacy and lore all play a role as the story, set in New Orleans, moves from present to past. Olivia, now in her late sixties, lost her dream of becoming a partner in the family coffee company when she was a teenager. All that remains a half-century later are memories of a more elegant life and the family estate, which her daughter Valerie is now pressuring her to sell.

"Was it real or a dream? A lie or just a regret?" Loss, legacy, and lore all play as role as the story, set in New Orleans, moves between past and present. When Olivia - now in her late sixties - was a teenager, she lost her dream of becoming a partner in the family coffee company. A half-century later, all that remains is the family estate, which her daughter, Valerie, is pressuring her to sell. Ann Aimee, cousin and lifelong friend of Olivia, confronts the return to New Orleans of her first love, Ford, and Olivia's youthful disclosure of Ann Aimee's family secret still resonates fifty years later. The Strange Charm of a Good Legacy takes a sensitive look at the effect of time on family, love, and friendship.
