    Step into Heather Kaufmans debut novel, The Story People and experience the power of a good book. Friendships are formed, imaginations are stretched and grown, troubles disappear.

    Ben Palermo is discontent with his life. His original plan of taking care of his late uncles bookstore for a year before selling it has now become three years. While the people of the town are a draw, he has no direction for his future.

    When Rosemary enters his store, Bens more engaged than hes been in a long time. Theres something different about this woman, something familiar. But when three well-meaning busybodies decide they want to keep Ben in town, hilarity ensues. As do the misunderstanding between Rosemary and Ben.

    Kaufman doesnt shy away from real-life issues that are painful. Instead, she approaches them with care and compassion while giving the readers a chance to recover with a pump of humor. It took me a few chapters to get completely engaged in the book but after five or six chapters, I came to care about each of the characters and wanted to continue on this journey with them. Some of my favorite scenes were chapter beginnings with the boy and girl as they created the story people in their secret place.

    And this would definitely be one of those books the story people spent a lot of time with.

    This is a story of reconnection with people - how Ben and Rosemary find each other, but because of the town's busy bodies trying to match make him to death, they always seem to miss each other. They are shy, lonely and misunderstood. I found a little humor for me because of the well intentioned set ups by the busy bodies of the town people and the misunderstandings. This is such an enjoyable book that you really have to read to enjoy in totality. With all of this they are encompassed by God's Grace and love, and how much more could anyone ask? I received a copy of this book from NetGalley to read in exchange for an honest review.
