Austin does an amazing job of touching the reader with each character she creates. Alice plunges herself into each book she reads, in order to find the life she is missing. The lessons that she learns and the love she finds make this a page-turner.
Alice Ripley is a bookworm who transports herself into the stories she reads. When her boyfriend breaks up with her, she decides to leave town in order to avoid gossip, and volunteers in the library in Acorn, Ky. Once there, she encounters an eccentric librarian, who travels to isolated places in order to deliver books. Finding herself stuck in the small town, she soon discovers that her real life in regards to romance, mystery and escapades is far better than any book. (BETHANY HOUSE, Oct., 400 pp., $14.99)
