You'll be delighted ... at every turn of the page ♥

I read all the reviews about this story getting off to a slow start and concluded that this seemed to be my experience as well. I just couldn’t wrap my head around Della Lee setting up residence in Josey’s closet. All through the story, something about her being there … in the closet … gave me some angst and yet … I kept reading.
And if you know Sarah Addison Allen well enough from all of her other stories, you’ll stick with this one and I invite you to do so because at some point, the entire story comes together … like some kind of knitted sweater that seems to be coming together in pieces and then all of a sudden, the arms are attached to the bodice and perhaps the hem is knit in place and the collar is set to embrace the chest which demands a piece of artistic jewelry to complement the entire garment.
Oh, my, goodness … this story is delicious! Every character … every conversation and every place and moment is knit together in the story so perfectly than when the story gets wrapped in its beautiful package, the reader feels like they have received the most precious gift … one that they will cherish forever!
I loved this story! I loved it soooo much more than I thought I would and that my friend, was the precious, unexpected and delightful gift I received from finishing this book. I invite you, the potential reader, to take a risk and begin the journey to a place of no return and when you’re done … when you’re finished, you'll place the book in a sacred place … a place that will beckon you time and time again to pick it up and take another emotional journey to a place of peace, delight and refuge.
Go ahead … you deserve it!
