"...beautiful, lyrical writing." The #OleannaVirtualTour visits Peeking Between the Pages!

Dar at Peeking Between the Pages has reviewed Oleanna as part of the virtual book tour (which is a blast so far!) and she has some wonderful things to say about the book!

Oleanna by Julie K. Rose is quite simply a beautifully written book. The story was inspired by the author’s great-great aunts and takes place in Norway in 1905. This novel paints such a vivid picture of life at this time in history and you feel drawn in from the very first page. You feel the hardships, love, loss, loyalty and family that flow from the pages of this book all the while feeling haunted by the shadows of ghosts past. I don’t often turn the last page of a book and want to go right back to the beginning but that’s how this novel has made me feel with all the beautiful passages and the quiet but deep and touching tale.
 Dar is also offering a giveaway copy of Oleanna (open internationally); enter by April 20!
