Review: The Book of Silver Linings

This treasure of a book is full of twists and turns. It’s part romance, part mystery, mixed with Constance’s journey of finding herself. Constance has secrets from childhood she would rather leave in the past. She’s worked hard to get where she is, even if it isn’t where she dreamt she would end up at this age. When she finds herself with a partner that just might be the one she begins to question what she really wants. Her questions lead her on a journey she could never have expected, complete with a ghostly pen pal. This book was a pleasant surprise. I enjoyed it so much that I read it all in one day! Constance was easy to like and her heart for fostering and caring for animals made her even more loveable. I enjoyed the fact that the story included some twists and turns with the romance and that all of the characters were flawed and realistic. This book left me feeling thoughtful long after finishing.



Within the margins of an antique book, a timeless love waits for a young woman on the precipice of a terrible mistake in this enthralling exploration of fate and independence from the acclaimed author of Some of It Was Real .

Constance Sparks always says yes …when her capricious best friend needs money; when her boss gives her more responsibility without a raise; and when her boyfriend, Hayden, who is very kind but also secretive, asks her to marry him.

While planning their wedding—and struggling with anxiety about the right course for her future—Constance researches the history of her antique engagement ring and unearths the name of a man who might be connected to it, plus his tragic love story. When she finds a book of letters in her library’s old manuscript section written by the long-dead man, Constance is deeply touched by his words and leaves a note for him confessing her uncertainty and doubts. She’s shocked days later to find a response tucked among the pages.

As the notes continue to arrive, Constance finds herself quickly falling in love with a ghost and putting her real-life relationship in jeopardy. Will a bond based on letters impossibly sent from the past derail her future? Or will Constance discover her voice and risk everything for the chance to somehow connect with her true soul mate?
