About the Book

In the early 1900s, a young woman embarks on a fantastical journey of self-discovery after finding a mysterious book in this captivating and lyrical debut.
In a sprawling mansion filled with peculiar treasures, January Scaller is a curiosity herself. As the ward of the wealthy Mr. Locke, she feels little different from the artifacts that decorate the halls: carefully maintained, largely ignored, and utterly out of place.
Then she finds a strange book. A book that carries the scent of other worlds, and tells a tale of secret doors, of love, adventure and danger. Each page turn reveals impossible truths about the world and January discovers a story increasingly entwined with her own.

My Thoughts

This had been a delicate and profound book, for readers and story lovers, I can assure you that this is the most beautiful book you’ll read this year.
January Scaller discovered her first door when she was young, no one believed her and had to keep that memory hidden for a long time, but there will be another chance to discover this mysterious world, there will be another book waiting for her full of adventures and surprises. Ready?
I felt like January was the part of me that loves to read, to be involved in the amazing adventures that a book creates in your mind, the pleasure to be part of them, even if it’s just in our imagination. Every book has a different meaning for every reader, that’s what tries to show us the author, Alix E. Harrow, with delicacy, beautiful prose and a surprising story.
Don’t expect a non-stop action book, this is a book for book lovers, to create stories inside stories, the beauty to let your imagination flow and grow inside a story, where every detail is important in your mind and it doesn’t really matter the ending, only the travel.
There are not many characters on this story, but you won’t need them, because what’s really important in the book is what it will represent to you, not January, because you’ll become the January on the book, the one to open the doors and discover all the amazing worlds inside.
