About the Author

After studying history at university, Sally Page moved to London to work in advertising. In her spare time she studied floristry at night school and eventually opened her own flower shop. Sally came to appreciate that flower shops offer a unique window into people's stories and she began to photograph and write about this floral life in a series of nonfiction books. Later, Sally continued her interest in writing when she founded her fountain pen company,

In her debut novel, The Keeper of Stories, Sally combines her love of history and writing with her abiding interest in the stories people have to tell. Sally now lives in Dorset. Her eldest daughter, Alex, is studying to be a doctor and her youngest daughter is the author Libby Page.


"I absolutely loved it! So different, clever, funny, and charming."

-- "Katie Fforde, Sunday Times (London) bestselling author"

"Funny, wise, moving, and full of lovely moments...The characters are endearing and unforgettable."

-- "Hazel Prior, author of the Richard & Judy Book Club Pick Away with the Penguins"

"A treasure of a book. Beautiful, emotional, and heartfelt with a cornucopia of characters you'll love spending time with."

-- "Phaedra Patrick, author of The Library of Lost and Found"

"Absolutely spellbinding...Warm-hearted, thoughtful, funny, and yet deeply poignant."

-- "Celia Anderson, author of 59 Memory Lane"

"Heartwarming, intricate, and empathetic, Sally Page has given us a treasure of a novel. You'll love all the characters, and yes, there's even a great dog. Completely delightful and warm."

-- "Annie Hartnett, author of Unlikely Animals"

"This is a deceptively 'gentle' story that addresses complex issues with a light touch. It's about the importance of stories and how we sometimes tell the wrong ones about ourselves, even when we're careful not to do that about other people. And it's also about friendship, and how important making families is. You don't need to be related to people to make a family, and sometimes it's best if you're not. I loved Janice (I adore competent protagonists and really liked her ability to do pretty much anything she turns her hand to) and was rooting for her throughout. Plus there's a foul-mouthed fox terrier that's one of the best 'dog characters' I've read recently."

-- "Jackie Fraser, author of The Bookshop of Second Chances"
