Product Description

When successful New York editor Jen Gibbs discovers a decaying slush-pile manuscript on her desk, she has no idea that the story of Sarra, a young mixed-race woman trapped in Appalachia at the turn of the twentieth century, will both take her on a journey and change her forever. Happy with her life in the city, and at the top of her career with a new job at Vida House Publishing, Jen has left her Appalachian past and twisted family ties far behind. But the search for the rest of the manuscript, and Jen's suspicions about the identity of its unnamed author, will draw her into a mystery that leads back to the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains . . . and quite possibly through the doors she thought she had closed forever.

    This review was written for The Story Keeper.
    I highly recommend the Story Keeper! Jen Gibbs is an young editor chasing 'THE story'. This was two stories in one. One of the past and one in the present. Jen Gibbs grew up in the Blue Ridge Mountains and I enjoyed how she took me back to her home and what life she had before she escaped to New York City to become an editor for a publishing company. The descriptive scenery, life style and people were wonderful. I was wishing there was more when I turned the last page.

    I was gifted a copy by the Book Club Network (bookfun.org) for my opinion.

    This review was written for The Story Keeper.
    Jen Gibbs has started a new job at a publishing house in New York City. When an old manuscript mysteriously lands on her desk, she is drawn to it in ways she can not understand. When this leads her back 'home' can she handle the stubborn Evan, whom she believes to be the author, and face the family she so desperately wants to escape. Will the mystery of this novel ever be solved?

    Evan Hall has secluded himself as best as he can and wants nothing to do with the media or journalism again. When Jen worms her way into his life is she being honest or is she just another editor willing to do anything for a story. She seems to have a mind of her own and is not afraid to express it. What is she really after?

    We are also taken back in time to meet Sarra and Rand. Their struggles and hardships take place in the same area Jen and Evan are from. Is this manuscript fiction or nonfiction? Who exactly is the author and will it ever have an ending?

    I would recommend this novel to anyone who enjoys good clean contemporary and historical christian romance. I was given a copy of this book from bookfun.org for my honest opinion.

    Reading one of Lisa Wingate's novels is always memorable. She has a incomparable way of writing a story within a narrative in such a way that the reader does not get lost, but feels completely in the novel. The Story Keeper is another one of her novels, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I think each book she writes is her very best! Her tags say Contemporary W omens Fiction, but I think they are so much more. It did not take me long to read it, as I was anxious to find out the mystery that was the driving force of the story. Lisa did definitely write what she knew, as the plot surrounds a manuscript.

    From the first page where Jenn steps into a successful publishing house the reader is on a journey. I see the world she sees in such a poignant way that I feel it is me living this story, anxious to do a good enough job for the business, loving the interaction, the learning curve. Chasing that perfect manuscript.

    The story flows, and sometimes I forgot that it was a story, and was on my way to the internet to do some research to help her. Some books invite you into them, Lisa's stories do not give you an option. You just do. I wait restlessly for news that her next novel is available.

    Thank you to Cheri and Fred at The Book Club Network, the author Lisa Wingate and Tyndale Fiction for the opportunity to read this novel. I was given a free book in exchange for an honest review. A positive critique was not required. The opinions are my own.

    I loved The Story Keeper by Lisa Wingate. An incredible author already, Ms. Wingate, again touches the heart and soul of the reader with this intriguing tale of mystery and family dynamics.

    In The Story Keeper, Jen Gibbs, a young editor at Vida House Publishing, receives a 20 year old story under mysterious circumstances. As much as she doesnt want to participate in reading the manuscript, the story draws her into the world of a young man named Rand and a Melungeon girl named Sarra. What at first seems like the forbidden fruit eventually becomes a mission to find the writer and obtain the rest of the story.

    Jen takes professional risks by pursuing the manuscripts author. On a hunch, she travels to the authors home which also happens to be near Jens hometown. Jen had thought she left the town and her family behind along with all of the brokenness it represented, but this quest will take her back to that very place.

    Evan Hall was a young successful writer when his books swept the nation. Now, his home is a fortress to keep the crazies out. But his young niece befriends Jen quickly and hes helpless to stop it. He finds himself being drawn out from the self-imposing prison and discovering a part of his past that he thought was long gone.

    The Story Keeper is a journey into the past where a people forgotten by time and horribly persecuted, created history with their lives. It is also a journey into rediscovering past hopes and healing family sorrows. Without a doubt, The Story Keeper will have the reader enveloped into its amazing account.

    I received this book from the Book Club Network and Tyndale House Publishers in exchange for my honest opinion which Ive provided here.

    This review was written for The Story Keeper.
    Jen Gibbs has just started her new job as an editor at the prestigious Vida House Publishing in New York City. Mysteriously, a manuscript from the famous slush pile appears on her desk. She knows no one is supposed to touch that pile so she is unsure how to proceed. Should she risk her new job by reading it or should she covertly return it to the pile. When she turns the pages of the manuscript, she is immediately drawn into the story of Rand and Sarra in the late 19th century Appalachia. Now, what should she do? Recognizing the style as reminiscent of a very famous author, she takes the chance that it might be his which would be a huge coup for her company. Convincing her boss to let her approach, Evan Hall about this manuscript, Jenn heads to the Blue Ridge Mountains. What she did not tell her boss is that these are her roots, roots she had hoped to escape and never return to.

    Evan Hall is a very private man. He deeply resents Jenn approaching him about anything involving writing. Evan has other issues, as well. He has a dying grandmother, a niece in desperate need of guidance, and a brother who refuses to face his responsibilities. Jenn makes a, what she hopes will be a quick trip home to find little has changed. Her family is still living on the edge of stark poverty, expecting her to bail them out without offering her much by way of love and acceptance. Jenn also becomes reacquainted with her talented baby sister, who is looking for a way out of the family cycle of poverty and ignorance.

    Will Jenn ever be able to find the true author of the story of Rand and Sarra? How much of this story is fiction and how much is true? Jenn and Evan must set aside their personal demons to find the final answers.

    This was the first book I have read by Lisa Wingate and I am sure it will not be my last. I enjoyed all of it, but I found her descriptions of the cycle of poverty in the Appalachian region of our own country especially informative.
