If you love books, humor and good writing The Bookstore
must read! Esme Garland, early twenties, gorgeous, smart and independent with a
beautiful British accent, finds herself in NYC on an art history scholarship at
Columbia. She has a great (unheard of) apartment and a boyfriend that is old
money rich and finds her endearing, if not quirky. Very quickly this picture perfect
setting falls apart. Esme becomes pregnant, she cannot afford to lose her
scholarship nor can she abandon her program. As she struggles to figure out
what she wants, Esme gets a part time job at a local bookshop called The Owl.
Even though she is afraid of the future and Mitchell continues to yo yo in and
out of their relationship, Esme is determined to have it all no matter what it
takes. She continually digs deep to figure out what she truly wants and not
worry what everyone else thinks (is this possible?) Supported by a small group
of bizarre co-workers and few friends, Esme learns about love, commitment and
being true to oneself. And of course, she is surrounded by a wonderland of books.
Thoroughly enjoyed this wonderful easy read and cannot wait to see what this
new author comes up with next!
