This all changes when Della Lee - a waitress with a troubled background sneaks into Joseys room and hides in her beloved closet - seeming to be on the run. Josey allows her to stay but Della seems to push her life in an existence outside of her closet - towards Chloe - someone Josey doesn't even know and towards Adam.
This is a magical read, and there is a realSouthern charm to this book. I love the main characters in this, and I love the underlying theme of magic in this book. This story shows how Josey slowly comes out of her shell, and how Chloe, Josey, and even Joseys mothers all face their demons. I personally feel this is Sarah Addison Allens best book, because this one resonates on a personal level to me. I can really relate to a lot of the characters and I know I will be rereading this again at some point.
Those of you who loved this, will also like 'If you could see me now' by Cecelia Ahern and 'Twenties Girl' by Sophie Kinsella.
If you want a book to make you think this is not for you, but if you want one that makes you feel then I can't recommend this book highly enough. fer crusies
The story centres around twenty seven year old Josey; she loves winter as layers of clothing allow her to cover up her body, she loves Adam the mailman from afar and has a secret stash of sweet things and paperback romances hidden in her bedroom closet, then one day she finds something else in her closet too ... a local waitress called Della Lee.
Whilst Josey's story and her blossoming relationship with Adam is sweet enough, it is the story of another character, Chloe, that really appealed to me. Chlose has split up from her boyfriend Jake after he had a one night stand but it is Chloe's relationship with books that is so interesting. Books have a way of appearing in Chloe's life and she has many. Since she was 12 years old she would walk into a room to find books waiting for her, wanting her to read them - she finds them in work, in her car or on a table at a restaurant, always trying to tell her something ... one time she even finds a book trying to get in to her bathroom and she has to warn the book that it won't like it there because it will get wet - a truly magical idea.
"I'm reading a girly book and the lead character is a dark haired curvy beauty who is descovering how wonderful she is by falling in love for the first time. Soppy, lovely and very pro 'real women'!"
And that's what I stand by. This is not high literature but it's a charming read that is exactly what you'd expect from the glittery front cover. If you enjoyed 'Garden Spells' or read Cecilia Ahern this will be a good choice for you.
