The Winter People by Jennifer McMahon

The Bookshop On The Corner by Jenny Colgan

I’m so glad I read this, albeit an ebook version. I wish I did end up getting a paperback of this. It’s a book I will re-read and cherish for life, and recommend to anyone looking for a pick-me-up and know-yourself-better read.
