Award-winning author, Michèle Phoenix, weaves an unforgettable tale of hope and survival in The Space Between Words. "Several scenes in The Space Between Words will leave readers without words, the ability of speech replaced by the need to absorb all the feels." --RT Book Reviews, 4½ stars, TOP PICK! "There were seconds, when I woke, when the world felt unshrouded. Then memory returned." When Jessica regains consciousness in a French hospital on the day after the Paris attacks, all she can think of is fleeing the site of the horror she survived. But Patrick, the steadfast friend who hasn't left her side, urges her to reconsider her decision. Worn down by his loving insistence, she agrees to follow through with the trip they'd planned before the tragedy. "The pages found you," Patrick whispered. "Now you need to figure out what they're trying to say." During a stop at a country flea market, Jessica finds a faded document concealed in an antique. As new friends help her to translate the archaic French, they uncover the story of Adeline Baillard, a young woman who lived centuries before--her faith condemned, her life endangered, her community decimated by the Huguenot persecution. "I write for our descendants, for those who will not understand the cost of our survival." Determined to learn the Baillard family's fate, Jessica retraces their flight from France to England, spurred on by a need she doesn't understand. Could this stranger who lived three hundred years before hold the key to Jessica's survival? "An unforgettable portrait of courage and reclaimed hope." --Kristy Cambron, award-winning author of the Lost Castle series… (més)

I enjoyed this book a lot. (Four stars is a high rating for me--I rarely give five, unless a book nearly tips over into "favorites" territory.) I thought that the central conceit--survivor of the Paris attacks copes with her trauma while researching the struggles of a particular seventeenth-century Huguenot family--was well-conceived and well-executed. The characters were believable, and the writing was good.

As someone with an interest in the period, I would have appreciated a little more background and context for the Huguenots themselves--why they were being persecuted, why they weren't willing to surrender their Bibles and disperse, etc. I don't think that would have asked too much of the audience, even in a relatively light work of Christian fiction. The Patrick subplot honestly required some suspension of disbelief on my part, too. Without getting into spoilers, you might even say it bugged me a little. (Heh...)

I would also note that some of the descriptions of violence are on the harrowing side, so readers should be prepared for that (though I thought it totally appropriate in light of the events being depicted). Overall, this is a solid story and a worthwhile read. I hope it isn't Phoenix's last historical novel.

I received an advance review copy from Netgalley in exchange for my honest review. ( )

I was very excited to read this! I love how they blended real life events from now and the past. I feel like some of the relationships could have been deeper but otherwise, it was a very good read about learning to trust, love and have faith again. It does involve religious persecution, but I don't really feel like it was too overwhelming if you aren't into religious books. I think it's worth the read if you enjoy historical fiction. It's part ghost story, part wild goose chase but very endearing.

I received a copy of this book for free. I was not required to post a positive review and the views and opinions expressed are my own. ( )

I really enjoyed this contemporary novel. It starts off with three American backpackers planning their last night in Paris which ends in disaster. The tale is told in the first person by the protagonist, Jessica. We watch her cope with the aftermath of an event where she barely survived and how she processes guilt, grief and the traumatic stress of a survivor.
This book has been listed as a Christian book, which would probably have put me off reading it had I noticed this, because I am not Christian. This would have been a shame as the religious aspect with the present day characters is very downplayed and did not detract from the story. If however the reader was religious it may add something to the feeling of the book.
This is an interesting book, and well worth a read. I enjoyed it, and the element of the historical research where fascinating. There are enough twists and turns to keep the plot engaging.

While visiting her roommate Patrick in Paris, where he is studying, Jessica is injured in a terrorist attack. Patrick urges her to continue with him on the antique-hunting expedition they had planned, rather than flying home. In a country barn filled with odds and ends, Jessica discovers a lovely 16th century wooden sewing box -- and, in its false bottom, a journal by Adeline Baillard, a Huguenot woman enduring persecution for her faith during the reign of Louis XIV. She is intrigued and, along with the pair who run the bed-and-breakfast where she's staying (Mona and Grant), embarks upon an adventure to discover the fates of Adeline and her family. -- Fascinating page-turner. The author is very good at drawing her characters, creating believable conversations, capturing a sense of place, and, above all, pacing her story...not revealing everything all at once, but allowing the plot to unfold in a way that is both realistic and plausible.

Intriguing story about a young woman caught in a Paris terrorist attack in a nightclub and the adventure she sets out on to deal with the after-effects of the attack. This book is obviously a Christian title - there was a tad too much God in it for me, but the story itself was great and the writing strong. Huge reveal about a third of the way in hooked me and I had to finish it. ( )
