The Story Keeper
August 22, 2014
Back cover Description:
Successful New York editor, Jen Gibbs, is at the top of her game with her new position at Vida House Publishing — until a mysterious manuscript from an old slush pile appears on her desk. Turning the pages, Jen finds herself drawn into the life of Sarra, a mixed-race Melungeon girl trapped by dangerous men in the turn of the century Appalachia. A risky hunch may lead to The Story Keeper‘s hidden origins and its unknown author, but when the trail turns toward the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains, a place Jen thought she’d left behind forever, the price of a blockbuster next book deal may be higher than she’s willing to pay.

Lisa Wingate sure know how to tell a story! This is not a story that is soon to be forgotten or easy to place back onto your bookshelves. I loved this book from beginning to finish and I was sad to see it end. I have read other books by Lisa Wingate and I have to say that this was the best one. I recommend that you get your hands on your own copy and disappear into the pages of The Story Keeper! You won’t be disappointed!
