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 the truth about family and love that may lead to her own unexpected romance.

my thoughts

Hope Between the Pages possesses a reverent depth sprinkled with humor throughout. Although I could gush over this story for hours (and still not do the story justice), as a staunch opponent of spoilers, my words will remain bound to preserve the precious awe of discovery for my fellow readers.

The dual timeline (or split time) novel is a natural fit for an author well versed in both historical and contemporary storytelling and Basham brilliantly shines in her genre debut. Each painful moment is gently unveiled with purpose and respect for both the character and the reader experiencing the tides of tragedy and triumph.

Readers will not be disappointed by this story. As impossible as it is for me to choose a favorite from Basham’s many delightful stories, this one certainly earns the prize for the greatest range of emotions evoked. Have a box of tissues ready, my friends, but don’t let the possibility of tears deter you. I highly recommend Hope Between the Pages.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher and was under no obligation to post a review. Additionally, as a co-owner of JustRead Publicity Tours, LLC, I received compensation from the publisher and/or author to coordinate a promotional tour for this title. The opinions expressed are my own.
