Lost for Words Bookshop by Stephanie Butland

At once a book about books, but in reality, this novel explores the transportational quality of a good story, its ability to take us away from real life. Loveday Caradew, a ridiculous name for a character, has lived a scarred life and is uses a snarky demeanor to maintain distance. This changes. It is a love story, ultimately, however, it also plays with the notion of legacy, trauma, and transformation. I enjoyed it, although it is more a character study than a book with tons of action.
