The Bookshop of Yesterdays
by Amy Meyerson
- Women's Fiction
Every story tells a secret
Miranda Brooks grew up in eccentric Uncle Billy’s bookstore, solving the peculiar scavenger hunts he created for her. But on her 12th birthday, Billy disappeared from Miranda’s life after a falling out with Miranda’s mother. Now, 16 years later, she learns that Billy has died and left her Prospero Books, now teetering on bankruptcy.
Miranda finds clues hidden in novels on the shelves, in locked drawers of Billy’s apartment upstairs, in the store’s name. Determined to save Prospero Books and solve Billy’s final scavenger hunt, she is drawn to meet people from Billy’s past, whose stories reveal a terrible secret.
This big-hearted love letter to reading and bookstores is a testament to how our histories shape who we become.
