Product Description

The day after the Paris attacks, a time of terrorist attacks wounding hundreds of innocent people,  Jessica regains consciousness in a French hospital bed. She felt perfectly normal until the memories of the horror she survived return. Now she wants to leave France and go home, but her friend Patrick has been by her side the entire time and asks her to reconsider leaving so they can follow through with the trip they had planned before the tragedy.

Reluctantly she agrees and while on the trip they stop at a country flea market where Jessica finds an old document hidden in an antique sewing box. With the help of some new friends, she translates the French and uncovers a manuscript about Adeline Baillard, a young woman who lost many people from her community during the Huguenot persecution, a time when Louis XIV forced Protestants to convert to Catholicism.

Now Jessica is wants to learn more about this young woman and how she relates to her three hundred years later.

Publisher's Description

"There were seconds, when I woke, when the world felt unshrouded. Then memory returned."

When Jessica regains consciousness in a French hospital on the day after the Paris attacks, all she can think of is fleeing the site of the horror she survived. But Patrick, the steadfast friend who hasn’t left her side, urges her to reconsider her decision. Worn down by his insistence, she reluctantly agrees to follow through with the trip they’d planned before the tragedy.

"The pages found you," Patrick whispered.

"Now you need to figure out what they’re trying to say."

During a stop at a country flea market, Jessica finds a faded document concealed in an antique. As new friends help her to translate the archaic French, they uncover the story of Adeline Baillard, a young woman who lived centuries before—her faith condemned, her life endangered, her community decimated by the Huguenot persecution.

"I write for our descendants, for those who will not understand the cost of our survival."

Determined to learn the Baillard family’s fate, Jessica retraces their flight from France to England, spurred on by a need she doesn’t understand.

Could this stranger who lived three hundred years before hold the key to Jessica’s survival?

'Phoenix's powerful and compelling novel reflects how the past can give us hope for the future. A surprising plot twist adds a bittersweet flavor. Fluid writing and seamless transitions from history to the present make this the authorand ’s best book yet.'
'Michele Phoenix beautifully entwines the lives of Jessica, a survivor of the 2015 Paris terror attacks, and Adeline, a victim of Protestant persecution in 17th-century France.'
'This amazing book will leave readers with a renewed appreciation for simple pleasures. The dual storylines will keep them glued to the pages.'
'Several scenes in The Space Between Words will leave readers without words, the ability of speech replaced by the need to absorb all the feels. Humor and warmth mingle with gut punches of emotion and stunning revelations. The link between past and present is woven seamlessly into the fabric of the story, connected by a sewing box that soon becomes the center of a deeply poignant tale.'
