This story made me bawl toward the end of the book. I loved that the story is around a bookstore and there is a little bit of romance. This is a story of joy and heartache and growing up. I love Grace and Mr. Evans and Mrs. Weatherford. Grace helps Mr. Evans and Mrs. Weatherford to handle what happens during WWll and they help her. This is a beautiful story. I received a copy of this book from Mira and Harlequin for a fair and honest opinion that I gave of my own free will.
I give this book a five out of five stars.

About the Book:
Inspired by the true World War II history of the only bookshop to survive the Blitz, a sweeping story of wartime loss, romance, and the enduring power of literature, perfect for fans of The Paris Wife and The Lilac Girls
London, autumn 1940: the Blitz has only just begun when Grace Bennett arrives in London to find the city she’s spent a lifetime dreaming about now cast in the clouds of war, and all of her plans unraveling at the seams. After accepting a job at a charming bookshop nestled in the heart of the city, a haven for literary-minded locals, she feels like a fish out of water – she’s never been much of a reader, after all.
As the bombs rain down on the city night after night, a devastating air raid leaves London’s literary center in ruins, and the libraries and shops of Paternoster Row are destroyed in a firestorm. But against all odds, one bookshop miraculously survives. Through blackouts and air raids, Grace continues staffing the shop, discovering a newfound comfort in the power of words and storytelling to unite her community in ways she never imagined, a power that triumphs even the darkest nights of war-torn London.
