How to Find Love in a Bookshop
Julius Nightingale is a beloved staple in his small Peasebrook community outside of Oxford, England. He found his life’s calling when he set up a book shop, Nightingale Books. When Julius dies, his daughter, Emilia, comes home with fond memories of the shop and the weight of a deathbed promise to keep it going. What her ailing father had failed to mention was the enormous debt the shop had accrued. Emilia doesn’t know how she’s going to fulfill her promise to her father after all.
