But when a vanishing bookshop casts its spell, these three unsuspecting strangers will discover that their own stories are every bit as extraordinary as the ones found in the pages of their beloved books.

  • Poor writing

    By Scheather
    I couldn’t even finish this book. The writing is poor and appears to not have run through editing. Do not recommend and I’m sorry I wasted money on it.
