Synopsis

Would you like to live in a book? Coral Ambrose is a personal trainer by day and an avid reader by night, but a five-year gap in her memories has driven her to record every aspect of her life and to save every book she ever read. With an apartment bulging with books and journals she visits a used bookstore owner who gives her an unusual messenger bag he claims will give her clarity about her problem. But first, the bag appears to actually pull her into novels she’s never read—much to Coral’s enjoyment! Jumping from one genre to the next, she sees, hears, and even smells the action, interacting with characters and literally getting lost in the world of books. It seems like the ultimate escape, yet each novel Coral enters brings her closer to understanding her quirks and compulsions as she discovers that the clarity she seeks lies in the truth behind a family tragedy and the secret she forgot she was keeping. A madcap, literary fantasy, The Novel Life Of Coral Ambrose is a mystery, romance, western, horror story, science fiction epic, thriller, and children’s book all rolled into one. But most of all it’s the story of finding out who you are in life through books and a love-letter to the joy of living between the pages. Contains Book Club Questions.
