Description

Books. Love. Friendship. Second chances. All can be found at the Printed Letter Bookshop in the small, charming town of Winsome.

One of Madeline Cullen&;s happiest childhood memories is of working with her Aunt Maddie in the quaint and cozy Printed Letter Bookshop. But by the time Madeline inherits the shop nearly twenty years later, family troubles and her own bitter losses have hardened Madeline&;s heart toward her once-treasured aunt&;and the now struggling bookshop left in her care.

While Madeline intends to sell the shop as quickly as possible, the Printed Letter&;s two employees have other ideas. Reeling from a recent divorce, Janet finds sanctuary within the books and within the decadent window displays she creates. Claire, though quieter than the acerbic Janet, feels equally drawn to the daily rhythms of the shop and its loyal clientele, finding a renewed purpose within its walls.

When Madeline&;s professional life falls apart, and a handsome gardener upends all her preconceived notions, she questions her plans and her heart. Has she been too quick to dismiss her aunt&;s beloved shop? And even if she has, the women&;s best combined efforts may be too little, too late.

This sweet, contemporary read is a standalone novel, though characters in this story will appear in Katherine Reay&;s forthcoming book, Of Literature and Lattes. Book length: approximately 95,000 words. Includes discussion questions and a list of books from the author.

Praise for The Printed Letter Bookshop:

&;Powerful, enchanting, and spirited, this novel will delight.&; &;Patti Callahan, bestselling author of Becoming Mrs. Lewis

&;The Printed Letter Bookshop is a captivating story of good books, a testament to the beauty of new beginnings, and a sweet reminder of the power of friendship.&; &;Rachel McMillan, author of Murder in the City of Liberty
