My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Written In The Stars is a fantastic novel by Angela Christina Archer. This was a new author to me but I was very intrigued by the blurb and just had to read it. I’m so glad that I did as I absolutely adored this book.
I loved that the book was set in dual time periods. We got to see Betty’s story in the late 1940’s to 1950 and also Marlena’s story, set in 1980.
This is the beautiful, poignant story of a teenage girl in 1950 who was made give up her baby and the story of that ‘baby’ all grown up, finding out she’s adopted and goes looking for her birth mother.
This book had me totally gripped from beginning to end. I was totally lost in both Betty and Marlena’s stories. Both are such amazing characters that I could have read about for hours and hours and still loved them.
This story is beautifully written and totally tugs at the heart strings. I challenge anyone to read this book and not be moved by Betty’s story.
If this book is anything to go by then I’ll definitely be reading more of Angela Christina Archer’s work.
