Soon after the family moves in their teenage daughter Kelly discovers the words “Joan loves Jack” written on the wall underneath several layers of old peeling wall paper in her room. Kelly is intrigued by the declaration and somehow feels a strong mystical connection to Joan. A connection which compels Kelly to find out who Joan and Jack were and what became of them. Ali thinks her Grandmother might be able to shed some light but unexpectedly uncovers a long buried family secret.
The story is told over two alternating timelines. One in the present which tells the story of Kelly and her family and one set in the World War II era which recounts the story of Joan and Jack.
The story is nicely written, a little bit nostalgic but very vivid with a few mystical twists which are done in a subtle way making it more realistic and in no way over-the-top. The plot is nicely paced, flows well and is captivating. The characters and their actions are describe well making it easy to imagine what their lives would have been like.
Overall this is a great historical fiction novel with a mystical twist. Anybody who likes historical fiction or who is a fan of Rachel Hore or Kate Morton will like this book. I look forward to trying some of the author’s other books in future.
the same author and I was not disappointed. I plan to read "The Emerald Comb" soon.
I really like the way she went back and forth in time. I think "The Pearl Locket" showed how people have gained a certain
strength in handling their feelings.
Keep writing Kathleen!
Perhaps with more experience the writing will flow more easily. The parents seemed awkward with themselves and each other until well into the story. Their daughter was far more believable and made the story come alive.
That all being said I recommend reading this book in spite of the unfortunate decisions made by some characters it’s a good story and an enjoyable read
