The Words Between Us Review | Moments With Mercy

The Words Between Us is an intriguing; but definitely edgier novel written by Erin Bartels.



The synopsis-
"Robin Windsor has spent most of her life under an assumed name, running from her family's ignominious past. She thought she'd finally found sanctuary in her rather unremarkable used bookstore just up the street from the marina in River City, Michigan. But the store is struggling and the past is hot on her heels.  When she receives an eerily familiar book in the mail on the morning of her father's scheduled execution, Robin is thrown back to the long-lost summer she met Peter Flynt, the perfect boy who ruined everything. That book--a first edition Catcher in the Rye--is soon followed by the other books she shared with Peter nearly twenty years ago, with one arriving in the mail each day. But why would Peter be making contact after all these years? And why does she have a sinking feeling that she's about to be exposed all over again?  With evocative prose that recalls the classic novels we love, Erin Bartels pens a story that shows that words--the ones we say, the ones we read, and the ones we write--have more power than we imagine."

Like I said above. Definitely an interesting plot-line that kept my attention but I wasn't impressed with some of it. A couple things said/mentioned that in my opinion, weren't needed but overall a good read.  Robin and Peter are such an adorable couple that really show what love looks like. Through all the hardships of life they find their way back to each other.

Disclosure: I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
