Summary:

The smallest items can hold centuries of secrets.

Inara Erickson is exploring her deceased aunt’s island estate when she finds an elaborately stitched piece of fabric hidden in the house. As she peels back layer upon layer of the secrets it holds, Inara’s life becomes interwoven with that of Mei Lein, a young Chinese girl mysteriously driven from her home a century before. Through the stories Mei Lein tells in silk, Inara uncovers a tragic truth that will shake her family to its core―and force her to make an impossible choice.

Inspired by true events, Kelli Estes’ brilliant and atmospheric debut serves as a poignant tale of two women determined to do the right thing, and the power of our own stories.

“The Girl Who Wrote in Silk is a beautiful story that brought me to tears more than once and was a testament to the endurance of the human spirit and the human heart. A powerful debut that proves the threads that interweave our lives can withstand time and any tide, and bind our hearts forever.”—Susanna Kearsley, New York Times bestselling author

    I loved this book. It was suspenseful, informative about the time period, and very moving. It held my attention from beginning to end!

  • Shannon E

    Honestly I could not finish this book. It was just too cheesy for me. So many things about the story line and the interactions between the characters made me roll my eyes so many times I finally just gave up.
