All the Lost Places by Amanda Dykes

I’ve been dragging my feet about writing a review…you see, it’s one of those that was so lovely, so intriguing, I wanted to craft one worthy of it.

But, I finally gave up and just put a few words to the page.

Just know, that anything I say doesn’t really even begin to describe this delightful story.

My Review

What an absolutely beautiful story.
I am left speechless.
Who am I? This question is pondered through out the entire book.
Beautiful thoughts, lovely prose…

Every time I am privileged enough to be able to read an Amanda Dykes novel, I am left in awe and amazement. This one is no exception. As I finished reading, I found myself… stunned. Mostly just left unsure of how to begin crafting a review worthy of this beautifully sweet masterpiece.

Well. It’s been awhile. I’ve pondered. And thought. And pondered again.
And I still don’t have the right words to fully explain this beautiful story.

So, instead, I will keep my review short and say that this is one amazing book.

It is a book about people finding themselves. Figuring out who they really are, and finding where they belong.

Two different time lines, woven together in a beautiful way.

I love, loved the setting. I have always wanted to visit Venice, and I could at least in a tiny way, do that through these pages.

If you are looking for a historical fiction novel that has something of substance, and is more than just an easy reading story, then please, do yourself a favor and read this book!
