This book is a gem. It may be my last summer reading tagged book and I wanted a fluffy one. It was published last year in the UK, it had a fair amount of idiocentric phrases that we Americans don’t use. Julian is a new dad to a tiny baby when the book starts out and he uses all his savings to open a bookshop. Fast foward 25ish years and his daughter Emilia is all grown up and now taking car of the bookshop herself after Julian’s death. There’s some flash backs and lots of characters, so be aware that you’ll have to keep track of multiple stories. However, I loved all of the characters and how they all came together. At first I kept getting them confused because each chapter would start with a new person, but once I got them all straight I loved learning about how their lives intersected in the small town of Peasebrook and the influence an adorable bookshop.
