The first warning is swift and to the point, but bookstore owners Glenn and Lindsay Reade don't 'get it' until their lives are threatened a second time. All they've done is read a young girl's diary and attempt to locate the owner. Just because the journal describes the girl's rape and subsequent murder of the rapist is no reason for anyone to want them dead, is it? The book is obviously more than forty years old. Who in the tiny Berkshire town of Paris, Massachusetts could still care? But someone does. And that someone is willing to kidnap and murder to protect their long buried secret.

This book was AMAZING !! I could not put it down !! You will fall in love with Glenn and Lindsay. If you are like me when you're reading a book, you let your imagination go, you will want to read A Page From the Past.
Glenn and Lindsay own a big house in a small Massachussetts village. The downstairs is their bookstore while they live in the upstairs. The way Cindy Davis describes the store, their living area, the yards and the people, you are instantly in love and will want to move there.
On one of their trips seeking old, collectible books, they come across a young girl's diary from years ago. Lindsay, who loves to read diaries, was about to toss it aside when one word jumped out at her......murder. She was curious so she started reading it. She became obsessed with the diary which got Glenn curious also. They decided to investigate a bit and see if they could find the owner of the diary. Unfortunately as they dig for clues and follow up on leads, a black pick-up truck wants to do everything possible to prevent them from learning too much.
If you like a good story, a story that grabs you from Chapter 1 and doesn't let you go until the last page, this is the book for you. If you like trying to solve the puzzle no matter how dangerous it gets, this is the book for you. If you like reading a book that takes your breath away and totally shocks you with its ending......THIS IS THE BOOK FOR YOU !!!
