A week ago today I was there! It was so dreamy
Purposefully taking a moment because I don‘t want to finish this book so quickly.
Gahhhhh....it‘s so good!
I find Jenny Colgan books charming and soothing. This is a sequel to The Bookshop on the Corner, though this time Nina is a minor character. Nothing much happens for a long time, then it all happens in the last few chapters. These are books you read for the characters and the setting. One thing I noticed is the word “absolutely” is used at least a thousand times. It‘s a quirk in one of the child characters but it‘s used a lot beyond that.
Rachel has loved Henry since grade 9 & she used to love the ocean until her brother accidentally drown. Now she doesn't love anything or anyone. Fast forward 3 years & Rachel has failed grade 12. She moves back to live with her aunt & a job at Henry's family's secondhand bookshop. Henry thinks Rachel is rude, but doesn't know about Cal.The power of words help them work through their misunderstanding and Rachel to begin living again.
