Publisher's Description

Sought after by every agent and actress in New York, handsome casting director James B. Lockhart Jr. is at the top of his craft.

Red-haired beauty Elizabeth Ash lives in a third-floor apartment and earns her living as a flutist.

Both have loved deeply...but things haven't turned out as they'd hoped.

Then Elizabeth discovers a story scribbled in purple ink in the margins of some old novels at a nearby church thrift shop. It moves her like nothing else has...and makes her long for something more.

Jim has spent months mired in the past. Now he hopes to start a new chapter in his life...create a new beginning. But is that really possible after all this time? Or is it too late?

Flutist Elizabeth Ash went to the church rummage sale with aspiring actress Dorothy Hughes just to keep her friend company, but when she arrives home with a couple of used books from a favorite author, she finds a love story to change her life in Rick Hamlin's Reading Between the Lines. The love story is not that told by the author, but one written by a reader to her "Darling" along the margins. As Elizabeth reads the love story, she feels that she knows the couple involved and must find the woman's husband to return the books to him.
Jim Lockhart, casting director, has survived his wife's death of cancer by throwing himself into his routine and by reciting a simple prayer: "Jesus Christ, have mercy upon me. Make haste to help me. Rescue me and save me. Let thy will be done in my life."
Though his friends encourage Jim to date, he hasn't had the heart to until he takes a risk. The date is a date from the Twilight Zone. He decides to give up on dating until Dorothy Hughes, whom he has just cast in a commercial, introduces him to Elizabeth.
Rick Hamlin has written a pleasant, sweet love story, much of it from the male viewpoint, showing a husband's grief at his wife's untimely death. He also illustrates the confusion of those entering back into the dating environment, the importance of hope, and the misunderstandings that can come from reading between the lines. Hamlin draws his characters well, and they stand out as individuals.
The book offers a pleasant reading experience for the romance lover, but without any substantial Christian content other than a rote prayer mechanically offered. -- Debbie W. Wilson, Christian Book

Editorial Reviews

"This is a brilliant book about a man and a woman who are struggling to find romantic fulfillment, but both of them are dealing with internal issues of fear, grief, and oversized hope. Hamlin takes us deep inside these characters and helps us to work through similar issues within ourselves. The book stays alive on every page, full of stimulating internal and interpersonal dialogue. This novel will benefit every couple who is searching for lasting love -- whether they are already married or hoping to be."
-- Neil Clark Warren -- Founder and Chairman,
"Reading between the Lines is a unique tale of faith and romance, written with surpassing charm and humor. Rick Hamlin finds magic in the lives of Jim Lockhart and Elizabeth Ash, two busy but lonely New Yorkers. Beautifully drawn characters and imaginative plot twists make this a truly engaging -- and enormously satisfying -- love story."
-- F. Paul Driscoll -- Editor in Chief, Opera News
"Endearing and touching in turns, this book will capture the romantic heart. I was captivated and charmed, and you will be too."
-- Debbie Macomber -- Author, Susannah's Garden
"It's a delight to find a book that succeeds on so many levels at ingenious, suspense-filled plot; authentic characters you miss like absent friends when the story ends; an insider's view of the contemporary New York scene; a love story big enough to encompass death and abandoned dreams; and above all a drama of the spirit that left me, like the protagonist, walking a little closer to God."
-- Elizabeth Sherrill -- Author, The Hiding Place and All the Way to Heaven
