Author: Jessamyn Hope

“Though another century of issues and personal strife has begun, Safekeeping is a story that exhibits ways we can push forward through our own strangling legacies and find home. Or, perhaps, find solace in love (though not the angst-y, sappy type found in dreaded chick lit). ‘The book is about how amazing love is, and how painful love is because you get to have it for only a short time,’ says Hope, ‘That, in part, gives it its beauty.'”
