The Little Book Of Lost Hearts - Valerie-Anne Baglietto
Source: Review Copy courtesy of author
Christmas in Fools Castle hasn’t always been this magical…
Nothing much happens around here, but that suits Antoinette Ellis perfectly. She wants the cocoon the village provides. Fate has taken too many of her loved ones, and all she has left is her brother, and their late sister’s daughter, Tabitha. Antoinette gave up her future to look after her young niece, but her sacrifice hasn’t gone unnoticed.
When a stranger called Rufus moves into the grim, grey house opposite her cottage, odd things start to happen in Fools Castle. He admits he’s not the person he appears to be, but he won’t reveal who he really is. And what secrets lie within that little old book of his, which no one is allowed to look inside?
A miracle is long overdue, but the season for miracles is just around the corner.
I'm a big fan of Valerie-Anne Baglietto, she has a unique sense of mystery, magic and heart warming love in her writing.
I was thrilled when she passed me her Christmas novella to have in my Christmas Bookathon and couldn't wait to get started. I was not let down at all with The Little Book Of Lost Hearts. Straight away you are thrown head first into the deep and wonderful world of Baglietto's story telling. The excitement and mystery that's surrounding certain characters has you gripped from beginning to end.
I won't say anything else about this book because I want you to go into it with your eyes completely shut so you get the full depth if this wonderful, deep and meaningful book. After I finished, I took a whole to sit back and think of things in life. How selfless some are in life for the somebody who had their heart.
