About the Book:

Glimmers-2240Glimmers by Barbara Brooke

A simple touch and suddenly, Paige is in the past — living someone else’s life, seeing the world through her eyes, and feeling her deepest emotions.

Paige used to think memories existed only in one’s mind. But now, she knows better. She can’t explain how or why, but she has “glimmers”: special moments that have remained behind — clinging to a letter, a ring, even a worn-out pair of boots.

When Paige returns from each glimmer, a small part of her has changed. Who is this gourmet cook, fashion designer, feisty lover? And how is she supposed to explain this to her family without them thinking she has completely lost her mind?

Paige believes her new talent is a gift, until she’s transported into her sister’s memory and catches a glimmer of her secret life.

Take this humorous and romantic journey as Paige learns about true love through the lives of three extraordinary women.


The book Glimmers written by Barbara Brooke is a chick-lit that opened up a new world of fiction to my eyes. The paranormal episodes initially presented a challenge for me in the beginning, but once I got used to the changes, things settled right down for me in a good way. I really enjoyed how the author took her readers on an exploratory book adventure, by giving them something new and insightful yet without all the modern day violence and nonsense that others must use to write a good story. Brooke keeps her readers wanting to know more by ending one paranormal episode and sending the protagonist back to reality. She does this with sleek charm and situations that reflect the new time period in which her characters are being thrust from. I found this read to move very well and I was always interested in just what would happen next! Not only was the pace great but the characters were expressive and upbeat, not to mention at certain times lively. I really enjoyed the author's use of the time frame of the 80's and it surely had me remembering the good old days of my childhood. Brooke definitely gives her readers something to turn the pages for and does not leave them empty handed. I recommend this book to all readers that like a good down to earth yet clean book.
