Leslie and her parents were new comers to the rural community where Jess Lived, and were thought to be a bit odd, for they didn’t even own a TV, though their house was filled with books.

The Legacy that Leslie finally brought to Jess enabled him to cope with the unexpected tragedy that touched them all.
