Nutshell – Delaney Holden is a freshman in college, a lover of history, and a writer of historical romances. Unbeknownst to Laney, her journal jaunts become real. The characters show up in her world, wreak havoc (or take long, romantic beach strolls… I’m not judging😉), they are a figment of her imagination yet nonfictional, they love her and hate her, Laney is in control but ascendancy eludes her. This is a book of conundrums. Is it too convoluted to follow? No! The Weaver is a mind-bending, time-shifting, who-done-it, mysteriously romantic, Revolutionarily inspired novel. Heather Kindt has created a fresh, provoking storyline and… there are two more installments in the Weaver Trilogy!!
Fictional characters coming to life isn’t a brand-spanking-new premise (Cornelia Funke’s Inkheart, Stephen King’s The Dark Half, and for opposite’s day, The Neverending Story by Michael Ende are a few), but it certainly isn’t conventional. Kindt finds a balance that fascinates. It is a story within a story with slight jogs left and right (a space-time continuum, well… without space). Good news – I’m hooked. I want more. Bad News – website trolling uncovered zero release dates for the second book.
*Note – Why couldn’t my college campus look like Madison College (FYI, it is based on the author’s alma mater)? Annnd a castleesque History Department… Seriously?… I feel appropriately jipped.
*Note – Laney’s love interest… which one??… hmmm…
*Note – How many times while reading The Weaver did I think, No way, Wait a minute… but they are sooooo nice, or If this ends the way I think it’s going to end… an estimated 48 times😲 There are characters that I KNOW I’ve figured out. Wrong. There are scenes where I KNOW the outcome. Wrong. I should also note that I am dying to discuss this book and its many players.
