Island Books is hosting a virtual Open Book Club featuring the book, The Girl Who Wrote in Silk by Kelli Estes. A historical novel inspired by true events, Kelli Estes’s brilliant and atmospheric debut is a poignant tale of two women determined to do the right thing and the power of our own stories. Set in the San Juan Islands of Puget Sound, Inara Erickson is exploring her deceased aunt’s estate when she finds an elaborately stitched piece of fabric hidden in the house. As she peels back layer upon layer of the secrets it holds, Inara’s life becomes interwoven with that of Mei Lein, a young Chinese girl mysteriously driven from her home a century before. Through the stories Mei Lein tells in silk, Inara uncovers a tragic truth that will shake her family to its core and force her to make an impossible choice.
