Uncover the Story Behind a One-Hundred-Year-Old Love Letter
Walk through Doors to the Past via a new series of historical stories of romance and adventure.
Clara Blackwell helps her mother manage a struggling one-hundred-year old family bookshop in Asheville, North Carolina, but the discovery of a forgotten letter opens a mystery of a long-lost romance and undiscovered inheritance which could save its future. Forced to step outside of her predictable world, Clara embarks on an adventure with only the name Oliver as a hint of the man’s identity in her great-great-grandmother’s letter. From the nearby grand estate of the Vanderbilts, to a hamlet in Derbyshire, England, Clara seeks to uncover truth about family and love that may lead to her own unexpected romance.
What I Loved:
Hope Between the Pages is a love story to every novel ever written. There’s a lot here that ranks high on my list of must-haves in a great book. A dual-timeline, for one, is always a win for me. But so is a trip to England, a brooding male with a tender heart, and unanswered questions. To top it off with a message for the soul makes it even better.
The story was bittersweet at times but it was also inspiring. The way Sadie lived her life and the legacy she left behind is something to aspire to. Here’s one of my favorite quotes:
“Keep to your Bible and to your fairy tales, sweet girl. One is for your soul and the other is for your daydreams.”
This is a sweep-you-off-your-feet romance, with 2 love stories in one book to enjoy.
Rating and Recommendations: I’m giving Hope Between the Pages 5 stars. I recommend it to Christian romance fans, especially those who enjoy dual-timelines or traveling to England.
