From the author of the phenomenal bestseller The Keeper of Stories, comes the next uplifting story of how the most unexpected friendships are forged in the most unlikely of places . . .
Jo Sorsby knows she is hiding from her past when she agrees to look after her uncle's stationery shop. Spending her days glimpsing the lives of her customers as they experiment with what's on offer is a welcome distraction from the life she has left behind.
Yet far from home, Jo feels adrift...
But when she meets Ruth, a vicar running from a secret, and Malcolm, a septuagenarian struggling to write his first book, she realises that she isn't alone.
It's the beginning of a friendship that can transform Jo's life... if only she can let them in.
