Dearest Josephine by Caroline George ~ Review

My Review: 

A well crafted novel told in various parts, through letters, a novel, text and email, about a young woman struggling to deal with the death of her father on the crossroads of life altering decisions. Josie discovers the letters of a young man named Elias Roch, who lived over 100 years ago, written to a woman who shares the same name as herself. Through the letters she falls in love with the writer, but can she love a man who lived over 100 years in the past?

 A beautiful time slip novel that blends past and present, real life and fiction, that follows two people dealing with love and loss in different centuries. Smart, and well written, I loved the supportive friends that Josephine had around her, Faith and Oliver. It is an intriguing story with many twists along the way, and a wonderfully satisfying ending that I adored. 

A thoroughly modern historical romance, and an utter delight to read. Perfect for people like me who wish that they could slip into the pages of a book, who love a well done period drama, and want to live in a different time period. A delightfully imaginative read, with truths that shine through. 

I received a complimentary copy of this book. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
