Publisher Description

Lynn Austin Will Delight Readers with Her Winsome Heroine


Alice Grace Ripley lives in a dream world, her nose stuck in a book. But happily-ever-after life she's planned on suddenly falls apart when her boyfriend, Gordon, breaks up with her, accusing her of living in a world of fiction instead of the real world. Then to top it off, Alice loses her beloved job at the library because of cutbacks due to the Great Depression.


Fleeing small-town gossip, Alice heads to the mountains of eastern Kentucky to deliver five boxes of donated books to the library in the tiny coal-mining village of Acorn. Dropped off by her relatives, Alice volunteers to stay for two weeks to help the librarian, Leslie McDougal.


But the librarian turns out to be far different than she anticipated--not to mention the four lady librarians who travel to the remote homes to deliver the much-desired books. While Alice is trapped in Acorn against her will, she soon finds that real-life adventure and mystery--and especially romance--are far better than her humble dreams could have imagined.

A great read!

I never write reviews! I’m a reader not a writer. But I really enjoyed reading this book. It wasn’t hokey or contrived (even though Alice wandered up Wonderland Creek). It was fun and exciting and seasoned with tasteful tidbits. I wanted to read the sequel 😀! I hope you read it and find it as delightful as did!

Loved it

This was a great book. I loved the characters, especially Miss Lillie. She was so strong in her faith and her life experiences were so real. Thank you for this adventurous read.
