Description

"Marvelously optimistic about the future of books and bookstores and the people who love both."—The Washington Post A. J. Fikry's life is not at all what he expected it to be. He lives alone, his bookstore is experiencing the worst sales in its history, and now his prized possession, a rare collection of Poe poems, has been stolen. But when a mysterious package appears at the bookstore, its unexpected arrival gives Fikry the chance to make his life over—and see everything anew. "This novel has humor, romance, a touch of suspense, but most of all love—love of books and bookish people and, really, all of humanity in its imperfect glory." —Eowyn Ivey, author of The Snow Child "You won't want it to end." —Family Circle "A natural for book groups." —Richmond Times-Dispatch "A reader's paradise of the first order." —The Buffalo News "A fun, page-turning delight." —Minneapolis Star Tribune "Captures the joy of connecting people and books . . . Irresistible." —Booklist "A wonderful, moving, endearing story of redemption and transformation that will sing in your heart for a very, very long time." —Garth Stein, author of The Art of Racing in the Rain "Readers who delighted in The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry, and Letters from Skye will be equally captivated by this novel." —*Library Journal, starred review
