"Rare-book dealer Ashlyn Greer's affinity for books extends beyond the intoxicating scent of old paper, ink, and leather. She can feel the echoes of the books' previous owners--an emotional fingerprint only she can read. When Ashlyn discovers a pair of beautifully bound volumes that appear to have never been published, her gift quickly becomes an obsession. Not only is each inscribed with a startling incrimination, but the authors, Hemi and Belle, tell conflicting sides of a tragic romance. With no trace of how these mysterious books came into the world, Ashlyn is caught up in a decades-old literary mystery, beckoned by two hearts in ruins, whoever they were, wherever they are. Determined to learn the truth behind the doomed lovers' tale, she reads on, following a trail of broken promises and seemingly unforgivable betrayals. The more Ashlyn learns about Hemi and Belle, the nearer she comes to bringing closure to their love story--and to the unfinished chapters of her own life"--Book jacket flap.… (mais)

This audiobook mysteriously appeared in my feed, so I tried it. I listened to about half. Plot had some promise but it got mixed up with some lotsa emotional drivel. Not my kinda book. DNF ( )

Two stories in one. Three books in one. An interesting story well told. Worth a read, it can be slow in parts but keep going. I figured out one of the two twists. ( )

This is a very different way of writing a book but very interesting. It is written in the past by different people and in the present. Very creative way of writing. The story spans across many decades and is a great story of love and loss. Ashlyn Greer, a book dealer, finds a set of old books and has the ability of psychometry, the ability to discover facts about an event or person by touching the book. She gets a lot of feelings from the two books which leads her to investigate what really happened to the authors of the books. I highly recommend the book. ( )

Ashlyn Greer is a rare-books dealer who is able to feel the emotional fingerprints of the books' previous owners. She discovers two beautifully and similarly bound volumes that were never published. Each is inscribed by its author (Henri and Belle) with an incriminating statement that tells of a romance gone very wrong. This book tells the story of Ashlyn's quest to find out who these authors are or were. ( )

When bookseller Ashlyn Greer comes into possession of a pair of twin books with no known author or publisher, their stories compel her to track down their mysterious origins. Told in two perspectives—Hemi and Belle’s—the story unfolds of a journalist seeking the truth about a powerful man during wartime and the daughter of the man being investigated with whom he falls in love. Ashlyn has a traumatic romantic history of her own, so when the investigation draws an heir of one of the authors into her life, Hemi and Belle’s tale reaches across time to help mend a current-day broken heart.

I am not a historical fiction or romance reader, but Barbara Davis is one of those authors that I pick up her books based on name recognition alone. She’s a talented author who excels at spinning a compelling yarn.

The Echo of Old Books is no exception. The format is brilliant and works so well to advance not only Belle and Hemi’s stories but Ashlyn’s as well. Often sad, sometimes frustrating, the historical component of what happened and why is as heartbreaking as it is a good reminder of the dangers of political alliances in our nation’s distant past. As Barbara’s books tend to, the tale ends on a high note that makes it an overall feel-good read. Cleverly conceived and expertly written, The Echo of Old Books is recommended for anyone who enjoys reading romance and a homage to old books.
