DAISY REVIEWS : THE SECRETS OF PAPER AND INK

The Secrets of Paper and InkThe Secrets of Paper and Ink by Lindsay Harrel
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This book is solid 4 ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸfor me. I certainly enjoyed this fiction. The characters were well-developed, and I cherish split time stories. It’s unravelling a history mystery.

The story goes through numerous emotions and life challenges, and in the end, God brought them all together for their healing.

Nevertheless, there is a missing puzzle in the story that made me feel like this book was incomplete.

Genre: Christian Fiction.

A year after the death of her abusive fiancรฉ, domestic violence counselor Sophia Barrett finds returning to work too painful. She escapes to Cornwall, England–a place she’s learned to love through the words of her favorite author–and finds a place to stay with the requirement that she help out in the bookstore underneath the room she’s renting. Given her love of all things literary, it seems like the perfect place to find peace.

Ginny Rose is an American living in Cornwall, sure that if she saves the bookstore she co-owns with her husband then she can save her marriage as well. Fighting to keep the first place she feels like she belongs, she brainstorms with her brother-in-law, William, and Sophia to try to keep the charming bookstore afloat.

Two hundred years before, governess Emily Fairfax knew two things for certain: she wanted to be a published author, and she was in love with her childhood best friend. But he was a wealthy heir and well out of her league. Sophia discovers Emily’s journals, and she and William embark on a mission to find out more about this mysterious and determined woman, all the while getting closer to each other as they get closer to the truth.

The lives of the three women intertwine as each learns the power she has over the story of her life.
