Charlottesville, VA, March 26, 2024 –(– John Gainer, an active member of the University of Virginia faculty for forty years who is now professor emeritus of chemical engineering, has completed his new book, “The Inheritance”: a compelling historical fiction that centers around a married couple who receive an unexpected inheritance that leads to an unusual family dynamic they’ll need to rely on as they face an uncertain economic future with the Great Depression looming on the horizon.

Originally from West Virginia, author John Gainer moved to Charlottesville, Virginia, in 1966.

The inheritance does not consist of money but, instead, of the bride’s sisters plus various properties in West Virginia. Despite the religious prejudice of the time, this new Protestant/Catholic group manages to form a real family while living in a quirky house through the bad financial times as well as through the future World War II.”
