The Girl Who Wrote In Silk by Kelli Estes

Did Mei Lien stand on the edge of boat’s railing because she knew she had to or because she was forced to be there?  Did this act begin or end Mei Lien’s life?  Did this act begin or end Inara’s life?

Mei Lien lived 100 years ago​. Inara lives in the present. Their lives are unknowingly connected until Inara finds an embroidered sleeve with a Chinese story in a house that belonged to Inara’s ancestors, and then the connection begins.  The sleeve immediately catches Inara’s attention and curiosity. When she takes the sleeve to a Chinese professor at the local university, the sleeve and Inara immediately catch the professor’s attention.

THE GIRL WHO WROTE IN SILK is beautifully written and beautifully told by Ms. Estes. The characters come alive and the storyline is quite intriguing.

​THE GIRL WHO WROTE IN SILK has secrets about a family home, a family connection, and an embroidered shirt sleeve that t​ells a story that Inara just HAS to unravel.

The story and the unraveling le​a​d to surprises for the characters and to a marvelous book. ​ ​Ms Estes weaves a beautiful tale that spans from the 1800’s to present day.

​THE GIRL WHO WROTE IN SILK was difficult to put down simply because you will want to find out​ about the embroidered sleeve as well as find out​ how Inara and Daniel Chin unravel the mystery even though we already know ​the answer ​as Ms. Estes skillfully goes back and forth revealing the past a​n​d the resent.

THE GIRL WHO WROTE IN SILK is a​n ​appealing, alluring read​ with charming, unforgettable characters​.  The book is as captivating as the book’s title and the cover.

I thoroughly enjoyed THE GIRL WHO WROTE IN SILK.  5/5
