I loved this book so much more than I expected to and I’m so glad I agreed to read it. When emailing me Durham said ‘tone-wise it lives somewhere between the wonder of Roald Dahl’s more grounded works and the ‘things fall apart’ chaos of a good Michael Crichton thriller.  Oh, and there’s a liiiiitle Stephen King thrown in there for good measure, but just a pinch.’ and if you know me you know this ticks so many of my boxes when it comes to books. I jumped down the rabbit hole and just kept falling. I feel like even now weeks after finishing it I haven’t hit the bottom yet.

If you’ve been around here for 30 seconds you know I love bookshops, especially independent bookshops and so when I heard about this book I knew I needed to check it out. It’s such a beautiful book, a love story to both bookshops and the natural beauty of the country. But before I get too deep into that, let’s check out what it’s about.
