The Story Keeper
by Lisa Wingate




Overview -
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.
