When I Meet You by Olivia Newport is a fascinating historical and contemporary novel that had me enthralled from the start. It is the third book in the Tree Of Life series but can be read as a stand-alone.
The novel is set in 1909 and present day. There is a mystery to solve as an old trunk gives up its secrets in the form of correspondence but vital pieces are missing. The search to reveal the story begins… clothes, a family Bible, letters are all part of a life but whose?
Inheritance is important. We all want to know our roots and where we come from. We want stories to pass onto our children and grandchildren.
The characters were well drawn and likable. The leading ladies are bold and strong with fiery spirits who are easy to empathise with.
There is a question of trust. Not everyone is quite as they seem.
Olivia Newport has woven a magnificent tale around actual historical facts and real figures. When I Meet You was a fabulous tale that kept me entertained and guessing.
I received this book for free. A favourable review was not required and all views expressed are my own.
