Giveaway: The Story Keeper by Lisa Wingate

Recently, I had the opportunity to read and review Lisa Wingate’s latest novel, The Story Keeper, and absolutely loved it. (You can find my review here.) It’s one of those special stories that stays with you long after the final word has fallen off the page. The breathtaking setting, intriguing characters, and strong writing all conspired to drag me deep into its fold. So, to celebrate its release, I’m thrilled to share this exciting giveaway with you. But first, here’s a bit about the book.

Synopsis:the-story-keeper

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.

  1. I’ve heard so many good things about this book. It’s on my list of books to read. Not just for enjoyment of the story line, but also to study the style and character development the author uses. So many levels of fascination! Sounds like a win-win all the way around.

    • I second your “study” comment. The first time around, I didn’t know what I was getting into, so I just read it for enjoyment. Now that I know what a gem it is, I want to re-read it more carefully and hopefully learn from it and grow as a writer.

  2. Patrick W. Carr’s *A Cast of Stones* left me thinking about the power of the church in the Middle Ages and other eras and what a different impact she seems to have in western culture now. Good fiction makes me think!

    • I’ve never read that one, but I’ve heard great things about it. That’s so true! Good fiction really does make the reader think.

  3. One story that stuck with me was Travelers Rest by Ann Tatlock. It was emotional, but not like a soap opera. It really made me think and it took some unexpected turns.

Leave me a note! I always love hearing from you.
