A magical library. Secrets. Danger.... what's not to love!? This was a wonderfully magical read and is the kind of book that you totally lose yourself in! I know I did!
Sophie is at the heart of the story and is desperate to make her father proud who she has recently lost, whilst wanting to learn more about her mother who disappeared from her life when she was younger. The more she discovers about the mysterious library where she gets a job as a bookbinder, the more the mysteries of the past become a little clearer. And why is she the only person who can understand the language of some of the oldest books in their care?!
When her dreams start to lead her towards uncovering secrets from the past, she is unsure of what she will find or just who to trust along the way and you find yourself anxious on her behalf! I loved the mystical feel of it all and the way the story flows and how she begins to emerge from the shell she had found herself living in because of the past trauma she'd gone through.
I was enchanted by this story and just loved the magical library setting alongside a cast of intriguing characters.
