A simple touch and suddenly, Paige is in the past - living someone else's life, seeing the world through their eyes, and feeling their deepest emotions.
Paige used to think memories only existed in one's mind. But now, she knows better. She can't explain how or why, but she has glimmers: special moments that have remained behind - clinging to a letter, a ring, even a worn-out pair of boots.
When Paige returns from each glimmer, a small part of her has changed. Who is this gourmet cook, fashion designer, feisty lover? And how is she supposed to explain this to her family without them thinking she has completely lost her mind?
Paige thought her new talent was a gift, until…she was suddenly transported into her sister’s memory, and caught a glimmer of her secret life.
Take this humorous and romantic journey, as Paige learns about true love through the lives of three extraordinary women.
My Overall Feeling of the Book:
I really enjoyed reading about the "Glimmers" seen by Paige. They were interesting and diverse.
The book was heartbreaking at times, dramatic at others and sweet also.
I look forward to reading "Beyond Glimmers" someday.
Paige : Paige is the "main" character of the book. She has what she learns to be called "glimmers" whenever she touches an object that was/is of importance to someone else. Delilah Jones: Delilah is a recent high school graduate in 1988 West Virginia. She gets a job for the summer at a local resort before heading off to culinary school. Delilah is Paige's first experience with a glimmer.
Hailey: Hailey is Paige's younger sister. She is engaged to be married but, as Paige learns through a glimmer, is struggling with a dilemma.
Emma Middleton: Emma is an ancestor of Paige's whose glimmer takes place in 1818. Emma is caught between what she considers familial duty and following her heart.
One of My Favorite Scene(s):
My favorite scene is when Paige and Hailey's mom takes over and gets a very messy situation resolved. It was hilarious!
A Brief Excerpt:
I sigh, trying to remember what I'm supposed to do next. Since my strange hallucination, time for me is completley skewed. Before leaving my house this morning, I had to look at the calendar just to remind myself today is Tuesday.
This cover is gorgeous! It is so whimsical and dreamy. I love the collage of images and the script perfectly brings them all together. Beautiful!
~This is a general market book but is very clean and I would recommend it to anyone.
