From the New York Times bestselling author of The Wedding Dress comes a new captivating novel of secrets, romance, and two women bound together across time by a shared dream.

Tenley Roth’s first book was a runaway bestseller. Now that her second book is due, she’s locked in fear. Can she repeat her earlier success or is she a fraud who has run out of inspiration?

With pressure mounting from her publisher, Tenley is weighted with writer’s block. But when her estranged mother calls asking Tenley to help her through chemotherapy, she packs up for Florida where she meets handsome furniture designer Jonas Sullivan and discovers the story her heart’s been missing.

A century earlier, another woman wrote at the same desk with hopes and fears of her own. Born during the Gilded Age, Birdie Shehorn is the daughter of the old money Knickerbockers. Under the strict control of her mother, her every move is decided ahead of time, even whom she’ll marry. But Birdie has dreams she doesn’t know how to realize. She wants to tell stories, write novels, make an impact on the world. When she discovers her mother has taken extreme measures to manipulate her future, she must choose between submission and security or forging a brand new way all on her own.

Tenley and Birdie are from two very different worlds, but fate has bound them together in a way time cannot erase.

Review by mrseilar89
Overall Rating
The Writing Desk was extremely well written. I loved how the 2 stories of individuals intertwined. It was a whole nother world, but with similar stories. I loved that this story focused on writers, especially women and what they went through back in the day and even still today. Yes, it includes love, relationships, family, books and more, but it shows mostly what expectations and generations go through. It shows the good, the bad and the ugly of people. It also shows people redeeming themselves and making changes for the better. I couldn't ask for a better story to show people as themselves in everyday life. A wonderful book that is a must read!
