Hope Between the Pages by Pepper D. Basham


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.



About The Author

 Pepper D Basham has been telling tales ever since she was a little girl. When her grandmother called her a “writer” at the age of ten, Pepper took it as gospel and has enjoyed various types of writing styles ever since. A native of the Blue Ridge Mountains, mom of five, speech-language pathologist, and lover of chocolate, Pepper enjoys sprinkling her native Appalachian culture into her fiction wherever she can. She currently resides in the lovely mountains of Asheville, NC, where she works with kids who have special needs, searches for unique hats, and plots new ways to annoy her wonderful friends at her writing blog, The Writer’s Alley.



My Review

This is a story about saving a family bookstore, but it is so much more, it is about finding your soulmate. Two people who are destined to be together, no mater the distance, no mater your lot in life, the sparks are there.

A beautifully written tale of love and loss, so tender that you will be trying hard not to cry, but we follow theses loves and others throughout the century as they touch so many.

I loved the setting of Sadie Blackwell's portion, Biltmore, can you imagine staying there? Better yet, falling in love with one of the guests, a forbidden love, but beautiful.

The next love, is Clara Blackwell, and her journey to save her great-grandmother's bookshop, with her odyessy taking her back to Biltmore, and England.

We are not only given those love's that only come along once in your life, but we journey to find a deed, and with this mystery comes danger. Who actually owns the bookstore? Come along as we look for answers, and surprises!

I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher Barbour, and was not required to give a positive review.
