The Violets of March Sarah Jio

This book came out in 2011 and this book is a fiction book.

The book is about a heartbroken woman who stumbles on a diary and then steps into the life of its anonymous author.

The main character is named Emily Wilson. She has a bestselling novel, a GQ husband, and a one-way ticket to happily ever after.

But ten years later, Emily's life has changed. Her Great Aunt Bee invites her to spend the month of March on Bainbridge Island in Washington State. While researching her next book, she stumbles on a red velvet diary dated 1943. And then, the journal's contents have massive implications for her own life.

Now, I love what Jodi Picoult said about The Violets of March.

She wrote,

Mix a love story, history, and mystery and what takes root. The Violets of March is a novel that reminds us how the past comes back to haunt us and packs great surprises along the way.


Now, if you're a gardener, you'll love the cover of this book because it's an old chair with an open diary and then a violet cutting on top of the pages. It's gorgeous.

So, if you're looking for a bit of fiction book to tide you over through the spring, please consider The Violets of March by Sarah Jio.

This book is 296 pages of intrigue, incredible settings, history, and mystery.
