Lindsay Harrel presents a powerful story of healing, forgiveness, and finding the courage to write your own story.
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.
Three women, two separate timelines, with one goal in mind. Sophia, Ginny, and Emily are all in search of something. All three are hurt by the men they have loved, and all three are looking to find their own worth. All journeys have a beginning and an end, but it is not those places where we find ourselves. I was quickly pulled into the story from page one, to see how each women handled each challenge presented to them was incredible. The story is a gentle reminder that God is in control of our each step and that He only wants the best for us. We should be living each day with a purpose.
Another well written book by Lindsey Harrel, I am quickly becoming a fan and can not wait till her next book is released.
One of many quotes that spoke to me is “ Life is more than a beginning, a middle and an end. It’s about the countless moments woven in between the lines, the growth, the pruning.”
I received this book from the publisher in exchange for my honest opinion.
