Short-listed for the Booker Prize

“A beautiful book, a perfect little gem.” — BBC Kaleidoscope

“A marvelously piercing fiction.” — Times Literary Supplement

In 1959 Florence Green, a kindhearted widow with a small inheritance, risks everything to open a bookshop — the only bookshop — in the seaside town of Hardborough. By making a success of a business so impractical, she invites the hostility of the town's less prosperous shopkeepers. By daring to enlarge her neighbors’ lives, she crosses Mrs. Gamart, the local arts doyenne. Florence’s warehouse leaks, her cellar seeps, and the shop is apparently haunted. Only too late does she begin to suspect the truth: a town that lacks a bookshop isn’t always a town that wants one.

This new edition features an introduction by David Nicholls, author of One Day, along with new cover art.

Synopsis:

"A marvelously piercing fiction" (Times Literary Supplement), shortlisted for the Booker Prize. Featuring an introduction by David Nicholls.

Synopsis:

The national bestseller from the author of "Rameau's Niece" and "Alice in Bed" is now available in paper. When an anonymous love letter arrives in Helen MacFarquhar's mail one summer morning, it sends her on an obsessive search for the answer to the question "How do you fall in love?"

Synopsis:

Independent, irresistible Helen MacFarquhar is the owner of a bookstore in an idyllic seaside town in New England. A happily divorced mother who enjoys a playful relationship with her customers, Helen's life is turned upside down when an anonymous letter arrives, penned by an unknown lover.
