My latest book for review has been a pleasure to read. When reading The Bookshop At Water’s End, you can almost smell the ocean, see the Spanish moss in the live oaks swaying in the breeze and feel the warm sunshine on your shoulders.
The author writes with such poetic prose that you find yourself pausing after reading one of her descriptive passages, wanting to remember the words.
This is a book about enduring friendships-the kind that lasts forever; the kind that holds secrets and even holds grudges. It’s about love and profound loss and finding answers to questions that you may not really want to know. It’s also about redemption and forgiveness.
With endearing characters set in a small shore town, this one just may be the author’s best book yet, and that’s saying a lot.
Patti Callahan Henry does southern fiction divine justice.
