What better is there to store your secret treasures, including your fab ringbling jewelry, than a hollow book? It'll be our little secret! This classic book, Maeve Binchy's "Tara Road" (an Oprah's book club pick!), has been hand carved and hollowed out. The first few pages have been left loose, then the remaining pages have been glued and sealed together with bookbinding glue. A matte finish was applied to the base page in the hollowed out space.

Due to the unique hand crafting of this item, there will be some imperfections (slight scratches). There is only one copy made (upcycled from a previously used book), so the pictures show exactly what you will be getting (rings excluded). I kept the original dust jacket as well and will send this along with your purchase. Please convo me if you have additional questions!

About the book: Ria lived on Tara Road in Dublin with her dashing husband, Danny, and their two children. She fully believed she was happily married, right up until the day Danny told her he was leaving her to be with his young, pregnant girlfriend. By a chance phone call, Ria meets Marilyn, a woman from New England unable to come to terms with her only son's death and now separated from her husband. The two women exchange houses for the summer with extraordinary consequences, each learning that the other has a deep secret that can never be revealed.
