Court5 Stars Out Of 5Couldn't put it downNovember 20, 2019CourtThis was a beautifully written book, weaving another book within it. I now want to read the story of Rand and Sarra as it's own book! Jen's feelings were powerfully portrayed, not just blandly stated. I want to read all of Wingate's books now!

But once I did I didn't want to put it down. Lisa Wingate is currently my favorite author. She has a way of making you visualize the people and scenery and feel their emotions.

She has a unique way of writing that make her books seem real with well developed characters and stories that take you into the story and you want to keep reading to find out how it ends. This is a story within a story present and past. Jen Gibbs is a top notch successful editor in New York. A manuscript mysteriously appears on her desk one day and she has no idea where it came from nor who the author is. Jen thought she had escaped her past life in Appalachia but is drawn into the story as she reads of a mixed race Appalachian woman named Sarra in the 1900's. To search for the rest of the manuscript and discover the author Jen is reluctant to go back home but he must. There is so much in this dual story. It is fantastic and will captivate you from the beginning. I highly recommend this book. It is a great read.
I received a free coy of this book from boookfun.org for my honest opinion and review.

Absolutely spectacular!December 20, 2015CherylAge: 45-54Gender: FemaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5The Story Keeper is one of my two favorite books of 2014! I was invested from page one, and fell in love with the characters, time periods, and storyline. Wow. What a fabulous read. Absolutely spectacular!
Jennia Beth Gibbs, an editor at Vida House Publishing, finds a mysterious manila envelope on her desk. It likely came from the legendary slush pile mountain everyone other than George Vida is forbidden to touch. She should put it backit could be a trapbut what harm would it do to just take a peek inside? What she finds are three chapters of a twenty-year-old submission.
She must have more. On a hunch, in search of the author, she leaves for Appalachiaa place she planned to keep in her past
This book is two stories in onecontemporary and historical. Theyre both intriguing and memorable.
In the contemporary part of this book, Jennia (Jen) is a likeable character with believable emotions and concerns. Her growth is evident throughout the story, and the trials she overcomes are significant.
In the historical part of this book, Sarra and Rand deal with many unique trials of their own. I was completely enthralled with Sarra. Her Appalachian vernacular is strong, yet it never took me out of the story it actually sucked me in further. The imagery was intense and spectacular. I saw the winter clouds coming in, I heard the voices, I felt the urgency, fear, and frustration. I loved their story, and feared for their safety. I enjoyed getting to know them, and wish I could follow their story even further. (Sequel??)
The Story Keeper is a keeper. Highly recommended. I couldnt put it down. I didnt want it to end.
