    I ve seen some other reviewers calling this book sweet, and it really is It is a story of adventure, love, and history, showing us how stories and lives from centuries past still have the power to inspire change in our lives After the discovery of a mysterious letter in an original edition of a philosopher s text from the 1800s, Sofia sets off on a journey to figure out who the writer is, and what her story was Along the way, she finds bravery, courage and love within herself, and learns how to create a better life, inspired by the story she discovers The plot is very uplifting, and this book is a quick read for when you need a bit of positivity and hope in your life My main complaint is that the writing can be a bit jumpy, going from action to action, but I never found it disconcerting While you can easily say that the plot wraps up too nicely, or the main character and her love interest are a little too perfect for each other, this book is still a fun and enjoyable read The story remains heartwarming and indulgent, spinning a tale full of secrets that you slowly get to unravel as the narrative goes on In the end, you ll be charmed by the story and leave satisfied and happy It s a joyful work of historical fiction, and I m glad I got to read it It s a lot of fun, and a reminder to indulge our desires find our happiest selves Thank you to Netgalley Crossing for providing me with an advanced copy in exchange for an honest review.

    Thank you to the team at NetGalley for my copy of this bookThis is such a sweet and austere story of finding love not with another person but love for yourself Love enough to start again.Sofia is a woman who has given up everything for the man she married, basically because she believes that that s what being married is She quit her job as a librarian, she removed herself from friendship circles and from her passion for books only to wake up one day and realise that her husband doesn t love her and she doesn t love him We she tries to leave him, he suggests having a baby to keep her amused Once she develops the courage to leave him, she simultaneously finds a hidden story of a woman, Clarice, also struggling to overcome the obstacles left in her wake.As she embarks on the journey to tell Clarice s story, what she ultimately uncovers is herself.I love the bookish elements of this story and I love the austerity with which the tale is written It s not flowery of poetic but it delivers a depth of emotion that lingers long after you finish A fantastic read for anyone who loves books and writing but also for the exquisite european setting A wonderfully told tale.

    This book is about Sophia, a woman who is in search of herself while she tries to distance herself from her husband While her story is being told, it is intermingled with chapters about Clarice, a woman who lived during the 1800 s who s life gets noticed by Sophia through books The overall story was fascinating and I really enjoyed the back and forth chapters of different characters perspectives What I especially enjoyed was the eclectic topic of book binding which is a lost art with today s technology and it was definitely a different approach than other books However, I felt it was quite slow building up and some parts could have been executed in a way that could have included suspense to make it a page turner and keep the reader interested This book is for you if you are looking for a light read.

    I just finished this book and I fell in love This is the story of a mystery discovered in a book It is also a journey to finding oneself again I read this in one day staying up late to finish it This is a story about the love of books and those who bind them It is a story across centuries It takes you across Europe and leaves you with a story that you can t let go I can t wait to read from this author.I would like to thank Netgalley and the publisher for providing me with a copy free of charge This is my honest and unbiased opinion of it.

    Thank you to NetGalley for a copy of this book.What a beautiful story of a woman who finds what it means to love herself again As a woman, this book is entirely relatable in the sense that a woman loses her identity when she becomes married and finds it again in time How many women go through something similar to that I can personally relate This story takes us throughout many emotions, travels and friendships as a woman finds herself again.
