I'm of two minds here as the characters were extremely well drawn and compelling, but I don't know if I bought the resolution of the final crisis. Seemed a little pat. So it's worth reading if you only like a bit of drama, but if you wish for more adventure, this is not the read for you right now.

It seemed to take a long time to get to the meat of 'The Bookshop of the Broken Hearted', with little clue as to where it was going, BUT the title absolutely captures the theme.

'The Bookshop of the Broken Hearted' is about surviving unimaginable heartbreak, fear of it happening again and finding courage in love, courage to love, courage to be where you should. It is exceptionally well written with honest descriptions of people, emotions and places, sometime beautiful, sometimes realistically awful and yes, sometimes heartbreaking.

Although there was some unfamiliar Australian jargon to interpret, I read this book straight though. The hero is such a good and gentle person that one can only wish him good things.
