The Bookshop

A town that lacks a bookshop isn’t always a town that wants one.
I’m sure we’ll be the best of enemies...
I’m sure we’ll be the best of enemies...
Set in England during 1959. A free-spirited widow risks everything to open a bookshop in a conservative East Anglian coastal town. While bringing about a surprising cultural awakening through works by Ray Bradbury and Vladimir Nabokov, she earns the polite but ruthless opposition of a local grand dame and the support and affection of a reclusive book loving widower. As her obstacles amass and bear suspicious signs of a local power struggle, she is forced to ask: is there a place for a bookshop in a town that may not want one?
