A really lovely story about a mother-daughter relationship, and the importance of understanding, patience, and forgiveness. Maybe it‘s because my mother fractured our relationship so badly at the end of her life, or because Sally, the mom in this story, is my age, but I cried at the end. Definitely recommend.

This is a book of 2 halves. The first half sees a daughter estranged (to a degree) from her mother. She returns to London from Australia to take care of her after she has a fall. At first I found the daughter hard to like and I struggled to understand how she couldn‘t see the truth in front of her but as the book progressed I was charmed by their relationship, the books they shared and how they repaired their bond through this shared love.

A beautiful story about grief and community. I can‘t imagine anything that would ever make me mad enough to push my mom out of my life for any amount of time, especially two decades. Ella was infuriating, however I‘m glad she picked up on her mother‘s absentmindedness and realized her mistakes. What she does for her mother in the end had me crying warm, hopeful tears. Book #15 in 2024

Such a sweet, heartwarming story
of a mother's love for her daughter. Her laborr of love building her daughter a library book by book, year by year. A story of viewing a situation from a different perspective and how it changes what you've always thought. A story of patience, of forgiveness. A story of relationships; Mother-daughter, lifelong friends, husband's and wives, neighbors and acquaintances. Not everything or (cont in comments)...

TheHeartlandBookFairy everyone is how it seems. The evolution of relationships, of coming full circle. I loved the inclusiveness of some of the secondary characters in this book. The crabby, the quirky, the different- all treated with kindness and respect ❤️ I loved the tie in of Andrew at the end of the story and I was especially touched by the tribute to the beloved Sally in the rebuilding of her flooded library and the addition of including books chosen by her friends especially for her. 6mo
