Nina Redmond is a quiet librarian in Birmingham, England, who is more at home in Narnia or Pemberley than the real world of complicated people and imperfect relationships. But when she loses her job to downsizing and budget cuts, Nina takes an extremely uncharacteristic plunge: She purchases an old van, remodels it into a mobile bookshop, and abandons the bustle of the city for the breathtaking wilds of rural Scotland. She quickly falls in love with the land and the people, and sets about helping them the only way she knows how: by sharing stories. Rich scenery, compelling characters, and a swoon-worthy romance make this light, breezy novel the perfect read at the end of a busy day!
Fans of The Bookshop on the Corner can dive into another delicious tale by Jenny Colgan: The Café by the Sea, about Flora, a woman who returns to her tiny Scottish hometown and opens a restaurant.
