An interesting story. A cute little read that I would recommend for book lovers.

Hannah Heath, a world renowned book restorer, is called to Bosnia to examine a newly-discovered ancient manuscript. Slowly but surely, Hannah unravels the manuscripts secrets.

The story line is slow. But that's not necessarily a bad thing. It takes forever for anything major to happen, but the story doesn't trudge along. It almost glides. It is smooth and seamless. For this reason, I dragged the book out over several weeks. It was like sipping a soothing cup of tea at the end of the day, but only a little.

If your in the mood for a relaxing read, this one is for you.
