The Last Bookshop in London

  ~ I received no compensation and opinions are 100% my own or my family. ~

Synopsis (from Amazon):  August 1939: London prepares for war as Hitler’s forces sweep across Europe. Grace Bennett has always dreamed of moving to the city, but the bunkers and blackout curtains that she finds on her arrival were not what she expected. And she certainly never imagined she’d wind up working at Primrose Hill, a dusty old bookshop nestled in the heart of London.

Through blackouts and air raids as the Blitz intensifies, Grace discovers the power of storytelling to unite her community in ways she never dreamed—a force that triumphs over even the darkest nights of the war.

One (or more) Sentence Summary: It seems like lately (the past 18 months) I have read a lot of WWII novels. Most seem to take a different spin which I love.  The Last Bookshop in London did just that as well as took me to a place I love (London + bookshops). 

Written very well and would make an amazing movie (but read the book first-always). 

Loved the characters, everyone single one of them make the story and seems so real. Amazing story and twist on the traditional WWII books. Beautiful written and so vivid you can see yourself in the middle of it all. Must read novel and worthy of adding to your collection of books. Looking forward to Madeline Martin's next novel.

Madeline Martin is a New York Times and International Bestselling author of historical fiction and historical romance. 

She lives in sunny Florida with her two daughters (known collectively as the minions), one incredibly spoiled cat and a man so wonderful he's been dubbed Mr. Awesome. She is a die-hard history lover who will happily lose herself in research any day. When she's not writing, researching or 'moming', you can find her spending time with her family at Disney or sneaking a couple spoonfuls of Nutella while laughing over cat videos. She also loves research and travel, attributing her fascination with history to having spent most of her childhood as an Army brat in Germany.
