The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry

A.J. Fikry owns a small book shop on Alice Island. In this quaint village,
Island books is every booklovers dream until A.J.’s life slowly falls to pieces. After the death of his beloved wife (and this was her hometown, really) sales begin to dwindle. A.J. becomes unapproachable and alone. His love of books cannot fill the deep empty void that is his daily life. He refuses to socialize and pushes any do gooders away until a series of events changes everything. A chance meeting with a quirky sweet publishing representative named Amelia, a theft of an extremely valuable book of Poe and a package that is left in his store carrying a short note that will change his life forever. This is a beautifully written, easy pleasant read that no booklover can ignore. A.J. Fikry teaches us about life, love and books all in one simple story. What more could I ever ask for?
