I’m so happy to be able to give this review of the second book in The Chronicles of Alice and Ivy series, Ivy Introspective. (I reviewed the first book, The Dressmaker’s Secret, in an earlier post)

About the Book

In a world that doesn’t understand her, how can she grow?

Ivy Knight lives her life in a blur of confusion as the world passes her by in a tumultuous melody. She isn’t the perfect daughter or student, but as long as she can be with her family, she doesn’t mind watching rather than living.

Mrs. Chattoway treasures both of her granddaughters now that they’re reunited. When Ivy’s parents enroll her in a Scottish school for unique children, she’s happy to chaperone.

In a new place with a new guardian, Ivy discovers a special talent that helps her see the blurred world in a new way. There’s a light at the end of the tunnel, and Ivy becomes determined to find it—and help others do the same.


In this series, Kellyn Roth has created realistic characters navigating believable scenarios. In this second book, we learn more about Ivy, what she is dealing with, and what is going on in her head. It was such a pleasure to watch her grow as I read this book.

Miss Roth delicately deals with things like abuse and mental issues through her characters during a point in time where not much was known about them, much less discussed or dealt with. I appreciate her approach to these subjects and how she shows through her characters that God can be a guiding light.

I think what I loved the most is Ivy’s breakdown of the gospel. I really appreciate it when authors take time and extra effort to weave those truths into their work.

I hope you will try this series for yourself! I, for one, can’t wait to read the next one!
