Author: Mollie Rushmeyer 
Publisher: Love Inspired Trade 
Release Date: October 25, 2022 
Genre: Contemporary Inspirational Romance

A collection of lost books holds the clues to her family's legacyand her future.

Hope Sparrow has mastered the art of outrunning her tragic past, learning never to stay anywhere too long and never to allow anyone control over her life again. Coming to Wanishin Falls in search of her family's history already feels too risky. But somewhere in the towering stacks of this dusty old bookshop are the books that hold Hope's last ties to her late mother—and to a rumored family treasure that could help her start over. 

Only, the bookshop is in shambles, and the elderly owner is in the beginning stages of dementia and can’t remember where the books lie. To find the last links to the loved ones she's lost, Hope must stay and accept help from the townsfolk to locate the treasured volumes. Each secret she uncovers brings her closer to understanding where she came from. But the longer she stays in the quaint town, the more people find their way into the cracks in her heart. And letting them in may be the greatest risk of all…

EXCERPT



The strangest thing about The Histories of Women: Unraveling the Mysteries of the Female Life and Mind was that it wasn’t a book at all. When Hope had opened it last night, handwritten words greeted her inside. A woman named Grace Holloway seemed to have had the book created to use as her journal. Hope became taken with the woman’s writing and the woman herself. The journal was a fascinating glimpse into her 1895 life. 

On the inside cover, Grace had inscribed in slanting, elegant script: 

This shall be written for the generation to come: and the people which shall be created shall praise the LORD.” Psalm 102:18. 

The birds welcomed Saturday morning with their songs despite the cold, as though willing the weather to match the date on the calendar. Tomorrow would be May. Mags had given Hope the day off since she’d be home with Ulysses. Plus, Hope had worked the full week through. 

In celebration of finding her grandma’s book and her first week of work, she told them she’d make a special dinner that night. She’d already gone to the grocery store and couldn’t wait to test some literary-themed dishes on them—some potential menu items for the mobile cafĂ© she dreamed of. But the meal prep could wait. 

The chill of the ice-cold boulder beneath her leached into her skin, her bones. A shiver disturbed the gigantic diary balanced on her lap. From her spot on the lakeshore, Dusty Jackets was behind her and up the hill, and the whole of Arrowhead Bay was spread out to either side. 

She’d found the bay mesmerizing yet disconcerting at times, with the hollowed rock “face” of Lost Lover’s Island sneering back at her. And with the water always doing as it pleased. Sometimes fierce, pummeling the rocks so hard it sounded like a thunderstorm. Sometimes gentle with barely a whisper against the pebbled shore. It took orders from no one. Today, the waves lapped quietly at her feet, white foam gathering at the edges like the world’s largest bathtub
