    Very touching novel that wraps history and current day together in an amazing way. We've all read stories that were too good to put down, and the lead character in this book, Jen Gibbs, gets caught up in a story that she's only getting bits at a time. You get so caught up in the story that Jen's caught up in, that you are rooting for her as she tries to find additional pieces of the story. As she searches for more of the story and its author, Jen has to face issues within her own personal family that she's run from for years. If you have siblings you can completely empathize with Jen and her situation, as she feels her way through her challenges. As both stories reach their conclusion you find yourself anxiously waiting to learn how it all works out. As usual Lisa Wingate has worked her magic again, and I would wholeheartedly recommend this book to everyone. Once you get started you will not be able to put it down!

    The Story Keeper by Lisa Wingate

    Jennia Beth Gibbs left her home in the North Carolina mountains to the streets of New York City without looking back. Now shes just Jen Gibbs, editor. A week on her newest job a mysterious old manuscript shows up on her desk, she reads it and wants more. She wants this story. She finds herself heading back to the one place she never wanted to go. Home.

    Shes convinced the author of this twenty year old manuscript is the very man who wrote a popular book series and then hid himself from the world. And hes not an easy nut to crack. But her new job depends on his cooperation.

    The story includes a secondary story, Rand and Sarras. I love the way this author writes. Its more than a story, its a tale of the way people live in the mountains. Their knowledge of nature, roots, herbs, etc. Kin helping kin. And in Sarras story...prejudice. The two stories intertwined create a real page turner, just as in her book Wildwood Creek.

    The Story Keeper is an enchanting tale of past and present! The captivating storyline swept me away to the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains and the compelling characters lingered in my mind long after the last page had been turned. A fascinating story of history, mystery, and romance, The Story Keeper is a journey that is not to be missed!

    I was privileged to read a prepublication copy of The Story Keeper through the Sisterhood of the Traveling Book. All thoughts expressed are my own.

    This review was written for The Story Keeper.
    As a new employee at a famous publish company in New York City, Jen was not supposed to touch the infamous pile of manuscripts known as the "Slush Pile" in the boardroom. Why did that pile seem to call out to her? She'd lose her job for sure if she was caught even looking at it. On one of the first days at her new job a manuscript shows up on her desk from the "Slush Pile" that leads her on an adventure that reacquaints her with memories that may be best left in her past as well as an incredible love story. Who is the author and who is giving Jen copies of the pages of the manuscript?

    The book's storyline is actually two books in one. One set in a modern time period and one set years ago in the Appalachian Mountains.

    If you are someone perusing the book titles and or authors, peruse no further. The Story Keeper by Lisa Wingate is an amazing book. I was lucky enough to be chosen as a Big Sister in the "Sisterhood of the Traveling Book" for the upcoming book release of The Story Keeper. You might be wondering "What is the Sisterhood of the Traveling Book" and I will tell you. Last summer (The Prayer Box by Lisa Wingate) and this summer (The Story Keeper by Lisa Wingate) was sent to approximately 100 readers in 23 book clubs. These readers get a chance to read the book before it is officially released in September. I was chosen as the Big Sister of my book club #13, so I received the book first. You are able to write your thoughts right into the book, take the book with you and take pictures (which I did) and when you finish the book, you send it on to the next sister in your group. It makes it's way back to Lisa by August. The Story Keeper is about a successful New York editor, Jen Gibbs, who is working for a publishing house and finds a mysterious manuscript on her desk one day. She has just started this new position and is wondering what this is about. She knows that she probably shouldn't be reading this book but she does anyway (she is a woman!) Jen finds herself drawn into the life of a young Melungeon woman, named Sarra in the turn of the century Appalchian mountains. One of the reasons I was so excited to read this book was because I live in the Appalachian mountains. But as I read it, I became engrossed in the stories that are being told. Yes, the book goes back and forth between Jen's story and Sarra's story and I thought that might be an issue with me. However, it was definitely not!!! I wanted to find out what was going to happen to Sarra, along with Jen's story. Jen convinces her boss that she thinks she knows who the author is of this manuscript and she wants to go and talk with him. However, this is risky. If he is not the author, she may lose her job. In addition, Jen is from the area and she was raised in an unconvention and unhappy childhood. She is not sure if she should contact her family? Will she raise more problems than are already occuring, both in her life and in the supposed author's life? Will she lose her job? There is alot of emotion in this book and it smacks you right in your chest and you just want to read to the end! I am not sure how Lisa Wingate comes up with her story ideas, but surely God has blessed Lisa with a wonderful talent. Do not pass up this book! You won't regret a minute of it!
