A book about books and a bookshop!
Natalie is in a job that doesn’t bring her joy and in a less-than-satisfactory relationship when a sudden tragedy strikes her life. Quickly, she finds herself managing her mother’s financially struggling quaint bookshop in San Francisco and caring for her dear ailing grandfather. Should she sell the shop? Should she place her grandfather in an assisted living facility? How would it feel to walk away from the shop and her childhood memories and return to her job? Can she maintain the shop that she loves and has been her family home? As she wrestles with grief and these life-changing questions, “Peach” Gallager and his young daughter, Dorothy, enter her life.
Thoughtful themes include grief, making life decisions, honoring and preserving the past, caring for a beloved grandfather, a second chance at love, lost and found, family secrets, and the healing power of books.
