What a joy to read! Well actually, I listened to the audio and fell under its spell! Written in 1917, a tale of a traveling bookseller who decides to sell his book wagon called Parnassus, to a “spinster” who yearns for an adventure. Characters who will win your heart. Books and the love of reading are celebrated. Suffragettes. A breath of fresh air. If I wasn‘t smiling,I was shedding sentimental tears. Quick read.
