"The Writing Desk" by Rachel Hauck

My review...

Tenley Roth’s debut book was a bestseller, and she fears that she will be unable to replicate that success…especially as she is dealing with a massive case of writer’s block and a looming deadline. Her estranged mother throws another kink in Tenley’s plans by asking her to come to Florida to help her get through chemotherapy.

Birdie Shehorn comes from a privileged background. As is commonplace in the Guilded Age, her parents have arranged a marriage for her. Birdie longs to be a writer, but she feels that her dreams no longer matter.

Though decades apart, Tenley and Birdie are tied together in unexpected ways as they both search for their purpose and way in life.

This story uses a dual timeline to focus on two female writers. The spiritual message is seamlessly woven in. The historical details add to the enjoyment of this thought-provoking, entertaining, and engaging tale. The paralyzing nature of fear is one which may resonate with many readers, as well as cause them to consider how life’s failures can be something God uses for His good.
