Loveday Cardew is a loner in her twenties who prefers books to people. She has worked at the Lost For Words book shop since she was a teenager and loves her job. For Loveday, books are uncomplicated. Unlike people and relationships.
But one day a poet walks into the book shop and straight into her life. She distrusts love and intimacy, but he wears her down. She tells herself it isn’t permanent, just a brief fling.
To love someone after what she went through as a child would be against everything she’s promised herself about survival.
Then three deliveries to the book shop shake her world. She thought she’d erased everything about her former life, but obviously someone has figured out who she is.
When I started this book, I wondered if it had much substance. But as I turned the pages I could not stop reading.
I read this wonderful book in just a few sittings because it grabbed my heartstrings and would not let go. It made me laugh and it made me cry.
This is not just another love story or a testament to how we live our lives once we’ve survived great pain. It is so much more.
I think anyone who reads this book will come away feeling richer for having read it. I certainly did.
