BookwormAge: 25-345 Stars Out Of 5Great Outer Banks storyJanuary 25, 2018BookwormAge: 25-34Quality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5If you haven't read Lisa Wingate books, you're missing out. She captured me from the very first book and I snatch each of her books as they come off the press.
This story concludes the Carolina Chronicles series, and I'm sad to see it end. If you haven't read the others, you will be completely satisfied reading this as a stand alone. You'll also learn about the Federal Writers and the Melungeons. You'll find the past and the present expertly weaved together in this dual-time period story. And most importantly, you'll be inspired and fully appreciate how God puts obstacles in our way for His greater purpose.
You can read what the story is about in the blurb, but what you'll find between the lines is an incredible inspiring theme to keep with you when you've closed the book.

Savings in Seconds4 Stars Out Of 5Interesting history!May 31, 2017Savings in SecondsQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0I was excited to receive this book from Tyndale, so I started reading it the day it arrived! The story-within-a-story captivated my attention. It was so interesting to learn about the historic journaling of America's stories. I'd never heard of that project before, although I live in the area that was mentioned several times in the story. There is actually a Melungeon festival here! Though the story was interesting, it dragged on in parts. Additionally, I felt like the ending was rushed. I needed more closure (and a longer epilogue!!) I'm hoping there will be another book. I had no idea this was part of a series, so now I plan to read the others as well. This book was given to me by Tyndale, and these are my honest opinions.

Wingate, the author of The Story Keeperanother wonderful taleis an acclaimed writer. I whole-heartedly agree that she is a masterful writer.
The story begins when Whitney Monroe, a struggling restaurant owner, is summoned to her late mothers home in North Carolinas Outer Banks to assist her estranged stepfather. He resides on the third floor in an historic building, a former hotel, and the tenants on the bottom level call her after he has fallen and been hospitalized. His own family does not assume responsibility for him. Originally, she thinks that the sale of this building might help to relieve her financial problems and save her second restaurant from ruin. She feels responsible for her cousin and other employees welfare and thinks that this would resolve all of their problems.
As she sorts through family heirlooms to sell or keep, she discovers a unique necklace among the jewelry and a treasure trove of old letters from her grandmothers sister to her grandmother. These reveal the broken bond between thema perplexing mysterythat leads to answers to Whitneys own questions about her family and heritage. The letters reveal fascinating information about the Federal Writers Project during the Great Depression. Her great aunt had traveled and worked for the project.
This is a wonderfully captivating story with many layers. The reader gleans much historical background and pertinent information about the time period besides becoming involved in Whitneys struggles in life and love. This is another great work that I highly recommend. I received this book through TBCN in exchange for an honest review.
