  1. Megan L.

    Love split time novels, and the fact one character is from Ireland? I totally want to read this one now.

  2. MS Barb

    I’m interested in learning about Allen in 1817 and the young gal in 2018, in Ft. Wayne, IN (which I have been through!) And, what is in those old letters!?

  3. Sarah

    This sounds fascinating! Both the “back-in-time” story and the modern day story are intriguing! I’m not usually interested in YA books, but I’ll be looking for this one in April!

  4. Bernice Kennedy

    I like the mystery / intrigue of the 200 year old letters and how they will help the grieving young artist have hope again.

  5. Julie Waldron

    This sounds like a wonderful book! I love the cover and I like that it takes place during two different era’s.

  6. Ann

    The book’s title caught my attention right away. I’m enamored with all things Irish, all things of Ireland… You know how some people talk about having a “spirit animal”? I often think of Ireland as being my “spirit country” of sorts.
