Book Club: September 2019
Hey everyone, happy September!
Get those Kindle devices out, friends. You're going to love this month's book club pick:
(Available in Kindle Unlimited and Audible Escapes)
What I loved about this book: it reminded me a lot of the movie "Letters to Juliet." It was beautiful and emotional, and the Hero is scarred in more ways than one. Can he find redemption and love despite a tragic past he blames himself for?
Also, who doesn't love a good book set in New Orleans? There's always a little bit of magic hanging around there. ;)
New Orleans, a city of mystery and magic, of secrets and dreams, and a history drenched in both love and the deepest of heartache.
When ballet dancer Clara Campbell arrives in New Orleans, lonely and homesick, she is immediately captivated by the story of Windisle Plantation and the tragic tale that is said to have transpired beyond its gate. Legend has it that it is abandoned by all living souls, but to Clara’s great surprise, it is not a ghost she hears through the stone wall surrounding the property, but a flesh and blood man. A scarred stranger with a pain deeper and darker than the churning waters of the Mississippi River that flows beside his self-imposed prison.
The ruined man behind the wall hides himself from the world. The last thing he expects is to find a friend in the selfless girl who speaks to him through the cracks in the rock. The girl who keeps returning week after week. The girl who makes him wish for things he has long since given up on. The girl who strikes both fear and hope within his wounded heart. But there can be no future for them, no life beyond Windisle, for no one knows better than him that monsters only live in the dark.
The Wish Collector is the story of shame and triumph, of loneliness and love, and the miracle of two hearts connecting despite the strongest of barriers between them.
