Hope Between the Pages


What a beautiful love story. Hope Between the Pages by Pepper Basham is the most beautiful love story that I've read.

This enchanting story set in the early 1900's between Sadie, a housemaid at the Biltmore House, and Oliver, a young English gentleman. Sadie is the library maid, and they both discover they have a love of books, as she recommends new books to Oliver. Because of the differences in their stations, it is mostly forbidden, but they form a friendship. But as they know one another, they are drawn together.

In dual time-slip, Clara Blackwell, searches for the deed to the bookshop she has inherited from her late father. It begins an adventure, finding out what happened to her great-grandmother Sadie Blackwell. 

Sadie and Clara's story was so well crafted that several times I had to put the book down to gather my thoughts. It's emotionally touching, beautifully descriptive, with well rounded characters. 

Pepper Basham has done a wonderful job of inviting us into the lives of these people. I thoroughly enjoyed this book.

I received a complimentary ebook copy from the publisher, through Net Galley. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
