Thanks to Barbour Publishing and NetGalley for a digital advance reader copy. All comments and opinions are my own.

This is a special book, and one that I totally enjoyed. The publisher's description and the positive reviews matched my reading experience - and checked all the boxes: historical fiction with a dual timeline, a book about books (and libraries), a mystery, a romance, an evil villain (one in each timeline), faith, and a happy ending.

The story alternates between Clara, a young bookstore owner living in contemporary Asheville, North Carolina, and her great-grandmother Sadie, also a booklover, who lives in 1915 Fenwick, England. Working at the Vanderbilts' Biltmore estate, Sadie's job is to maintain the Vanderbilts' library and ensure that guests have books they will like reading while visiting. In the current timeline, the future of Clara's bookstore is threatened when a new chain bookstore moves into town. The store's ownership is questioned and Clara has two weeks to locate the store's deed, from 100 years ago. With her mother's research, Clara learns of Granny Sadie's life. We also learn of Sadie's situation as author Pepper Basham describes Sadie's fairytale-like story in the alternate chapters. The plot becomes more complicated for both women, and as I read what had really happened in Sadie's life before Clara discovers the truth, I found myself on the edge of my seat.

This was one novel where I truly enjoyed both timelines, and couldn't read fast enough to learn what would happen next and what secrets would be revealed.

So why do I call this a special book? In addition to the engrossing story which combines mystery with romance, the author skillfully weaves the themes of faith, love, and loss into a meaningful and touching message. Clara says, "I'd never considered how some of our greatest losses lead us to choices that God uses for bigger things than we could have ever imagined. Sometimes brokenness and heartache force us into self-seclusion and fear, and sometimes they can propel us into something amazing, if we let them."

This was a heartwarming, well-written and satisfying novel that I highly recommend. ( )

"Any story that begins with a library is bound to be an excellent tale."

My interest was captured with the first sentence, and my fascination never waned, as I read this new book by Pepper Basham. Hope Between the Pages is a historical fiction novel told in split time, and each story is a beautiful testament to the power of love. Basham fills this book with wonderful characters, two lovely romances, and a strong thread of faith woven throughout its pages. A Book Goblin and a Library Fairy add a fun touch to her stunning tribute to the written word, and the suspense and historical detail will certainly appeal to readers who enjoy these genres. There are many scenes that require tissues, and others that leave you yearning for that same love and devotion. Hope Between the Pages is part of the Doors to the Past series and I can't recommend it enough. It is a book meant to be kept and read again!

I received a copy of this book from Barbour Publishing via Celebrate Lit. There was no obligation for a positive review. These are my own thoughts. ( )

A bookstore, a split-time story, threads are woven together into a wonderful story all occur within the pages of this book. The story of Sadie and Oliver along with Clara and Max captivated my attention. I despised setting this book down. I craved to know the ending. The story unfolded at a pace I appreciated for the type of book the author created.

Containing mention of fairy tales, a book fairy, the Biltmore Estate, and Asheville (a place I called home for two years of college) drew me into this story. Sometimes family members make life hard and Sadie discovered this for herself. But the story comes together in such a beautiful way. The setting and characters blended together in a way that made me feel as though I was there and actually knew the people involved. So if you enjoy books with fairy tale-type endings, check out this book for yourself.

I received a complimentary copy of this book, but it in no way influenced my review. All opinions are my own. ( )

Pepper Basham combines history and present day in her first dual-time novel, and what an absolute delight!

From the library at Biltmore Estate in 1915 to a little independent bookshop now and England (in both timelines), a mystery is unraveled in its own fairy tale-esque way, with villains and princes and maidens who find their true loves.

Hope Between the Pages is built around books, but its foundation is set upon kind, generous, and caring characters I couldn’t help but fall in love with. From Sadie and her joy in sharing with others to Oliver who knows his heart and doggedly pursues its deepest desire and Clara with her love for her family to Max with his constancy, these characters are ones who have carved themselves a place among my favorite fictional friends.

What I think you should know:
This is a beautifully haunting story of love and loss. Growing up relatively close to Biltmore I am always intrigued by the magic surrounding the estate, so I was super excited to read this story. Basham weaves together the timelines seamlessly allowing the stories to meld perfectly together. Clara has been surrounded by love and books all of her life, with stories taking her a million places. I loved how she found her stepped out of her comfort zone to save her family legacy. Max was also a fascinating character. The Library Fairy and the Book Goblin, OH My Heart, their story gave me so many feelings. Oliver looked past the expectations of a person and saw what they really were. Sadie’s strength and love is beautiful, the lengths that she went to protect those she loved is inspiring. This book had me grinning, laughing and sobbing. I look forward to reading more books in the series and I will always choose to read more books by Basham.
