Penned by Evy Journey, this tale is inspired by the historical theft of medieval manuscript illuminations during the Second World War. Our displaced hero of the story is Clarissa Martinez, who uses her love of art to seek a deeper connection to her past and find belonging. So when she is embroiled in seeking out the missing manuscripts, she discovers more about what’s missing in her own life.

Evy Journey has crafted a slow-moving masterpiece of character study, culture, and more profound sentiments that will captivate literary fiction fans everywhere with its psychological and emotional intelligence. The novel blends several genres into its central character-driven plot, from cross-cultural writing and coming-of-age self-discovery elements to a fascinating historical mystery and plenty of travel writing to bolster the atmosphere and enhance the emotional themes. The novel comes to life like a gorgeous painting, and the deeper you explore it, the more detail and richness are revealed to you. I especially enjoyed Clarissa’s exploration of her daughter and prospective mother role and how those elements blended cyclically and satisfactorily. Overall, I would recommend The Golden Manuscripts for fans of immersive literary fiction with plenty of deep character-based drama. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
