Purse'averance (ebook) Review

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

I had the honor to review an ebook courtesy of the author's daughter, Alexis Campbell Jansky. Gwen E Campbell had dreams of being an author even at the young age of nine. As an adult she also shared a passion for textiles, and was a skilled quilter, spinner and weaver. This book, “Purse'averance” was Gwen's first published book, however she is no stranger to authorship. In her lifetime, Gwen has written many short stories, fictional books, poems, and several children's books. Living to almost 80, Gwen enjoyed a life of reading, writing, and enjoying her experiences.

Purse'averance is a fictional read that I was quite fond of. I was able to finish this in one evening. I myself am a lover of accessories and clothing, and liked her creative take on what these objects would say or think if they had their own little souls. I liked how the main character and storyteller is a purse, an accessory that I have always had an strong affinity towards. I also liked how the purse loved her girl/owner, or as the purse refers her affectionately to the reader as, “My Girl.” Women love purses and there seems to always be the one purse that seems to pop out at us and is the one that holds our heart. “My Girl” was at the right place at the right time and saw the unique purse and was drawn to it. Although “My Girl” and purse never spoke to each other, and purse's words were not heard or known by her owner, they shared a bond and a love for each other. When 2 people are supposed to be together, destined to be together, and are separated, even for a long time, they will find each other. Purse and her owner were meant to find each other.

This book is lighthearted, fun, and has a bit of adventure in it. Kidnapping, gossip, friendship, suspense, and romance all packed into one ebook! I recommend this ebook if you are looking for something light to read and want something short but sweet. If you enjoy this book, check out some of Gwen's other works. Gwen's daughter and son in law are actively publishing her writings and sharing the legacy she lived. I received this ebook as a courtesy in exchange for my honest review.
