Book Feature - Paper Chains by Nicola Moriarty
HBL Note: The synopsis of this book reminded me of that movie Serendipity, when the girl writes her phone number in a book and if that book makes it back to the guy then he can give her a call. Remember that movie? Gosh, I hadn’t thought of that movie in ages. Anyway, in this book India writes a letter and instead of mailing it in the conventional way, it is instead being passed by hand between strangers until it reaches its destination. It seemed a little serendipitous to me - like if it actually reaches its destination then it was meant to be. Scroll down to read more about this book.

Hannah has been running—literally and figuratively—from her life back in Australia. Whenever she’s not working, she’s pounding London’s streets, putting the past behind her.

India has a secret, too – one beyond any remedy. For it’s a secret that is currently sealed in a love letter and is making its journey across Europe in the most unconventional way—through the hands of strangers as they pass on the street.
And who knows where it will lead…
Before the letter with India’s deepest, darkest secret reaches its destination, can the women find the connection that will take each of them exactly where they need to go….
