Description
From the #1 New York Times author of Before We Were Yours!
"Wingate is, quite simply, a master storyteller.
Her story-within-a-story, penned with a fine, expressive style, will captivate writers and nonwriters alike." —Booklist
"Not since To Kill a Mockingbird has a story impacted me like this."
—Colleen Coble, USA Today bestselling author of Seagrass Pier
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 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.
2015 winner of both a Christy Award and a Carol Award.

        September 1, 2014

        Jen Gibs is finally getting her life back together after her breakup with her on-again, off-again boyfriend. She has a new job at a publishing house and is ready to dig her way out of debt and away from the clutches of her dysfunctional family. When one of the manuscripts from the "slush mountain" mysteriously shows up on her desk, Jen starts reading and is immersed in the narrative of Sarra, a mixed-race young woman living in Appalachia at the beginning of the 20th century. Written in a "story within a story" format, this novel will intrigue readers with its dual narratives: Sarra's tale and Jen's perspective as a young woman living in New York who fought her way out of those same Blue Ridge Mountains. VERDICT While this offers a different read from Wingate's typical novels (The Prayer Box), fans will not be disappointed. Light on the Christian spiritual elements, it will also appeal to readers of women's and historical fiction.--Shondra Brown, Wakarusa P.L., IN
