Historical fiction

The Binder of Lost Stories by Cristina Caboni

I have once again topped up numerous reviews to put out together because I cannot seem to maintain a good enough regime despite waking early and sleeping at my normal times! I did start a knitting project (my very first!) and I hope at least I will see that through.

It took me a while to get to and complete this book. I think I finally finished it because I was listening to it while on a shopping trip and had to see it through. That does not mean it is a bad book. I was just not in the right headspace for something like this

This is the story of a woman who is seeing her life with fresh eyes and is not happy with the result of her self evaluation. Her change is fuelled by the discovery of a hidden letter of a helpless woman centuries ago. The tone and content of which spurs her into action and Sofia sets out to find out more about what the history of the woman and her bookbinding skills were. The dual narrative now moves to give us a first-hand account of the trials of a sad little girl who becomes a woman used as a pawn for one reason or another. The story is predictable but well told. There is a rich tapestry of these ‘different’ careers that people work in, making for some interesting reading. The narration was excellent, and there was a distinct difference in the tone of the narrative of both women at different stages of their growth.

My last KU review was: The Killing Fog (The Grave Kingdom #1) by Jeff Wheeler
