Michele Phoenix did it again. She has a way with words that will keep the reader up all night reading The Space Between Words. Two stories, three centuries apart. Present time woman (Jessica) who is learning how to live again and physically and emotionally heal and love a woman in the past.
The book starts with the Paris terrorist attacks of 2015 when 137 people at the Bataclan Concert Hall were killed. The main character, Jessica is shot and survives the attack. As part of her physical healing, she rents a cottage in the French countryside from two Americans, Mona and Grant. As she slowy ventures outside, Jessica visits several flea markets where she finds an antique sewing box with a false bottom and several pages of the bible.
Mona and Grant, owners of the cottage help Jessica trace the box back to the orginial owners-a Huguenot girl who lived in the 17th century.
At first I was hesitant to read The Space Between Words because of the terrorist attacks in Paris, once I started reading it reminded me that we can overcome hard times with God right along side us. Story of hope, love and living after evil threatens to take everything away. Have some tissues handy.
I received this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
