5 General Fiction Adult Women s Fiction Publication date 07 Jul 2020 5 Stars.If you get the warm fuzzies when reading about old bookstores in historical buildings, you will enjoy this story of loss, love and second chances.Though all the characters were well developed, I had an especial fondness for Grandy impeccable, a pure hearted elderly gentleman with a kindly voice whose story is actually clarified by the onset of dementia, a place where time begins to collapse into the memories of his few unresolved questions and where he occasionally still basks in the presence of his most profound but deceased loves You may find yourself nodding along with understanding and compassion when he shares his heartfelt wisdom.It s this thread of love and devotion that sustains the novel and keeps it from becoming an unending tale of hardship amidst the rich local color of San Francisco.Behind the easy going tone of this polished story, you ll find the riches of a seasoned observer in a book that shows the possibility of navigating through a challenging time with consciousness, understanding and an open heart.Thanks to NetGalley and HarperCollins Publishers for providing a digital copy of this

filled with what we love books The Lost and Found Bookshop, however, opens with a funeral not gradually in Chapter one, but upfront in the Prologue It s like a hand popping up and smacking you in the face as soon as you open the book Now do not run away, this book is about the bookshop and how Natalie Harper, Blythe Harper s daughter and only child, has to use both her intelligence and creativity, to save this bookshop from going under Blythe Harper was, beautiful and inspiring, brilliant, but often foolish quirky and infuriating, complicated and beloved Natalie inherited some of these traits too, but in a muchorganized way She cannot believe her mother let the debt get so high or the building fall into such disrepair Grrrr, Natalie felt love, frustration and grief all at the same time Well, at least she had, Grandy, Blythe s father and her grandfather, who she loved dearly They would have to try and save this bookshop together.This story is the, Great Adventure and discoveries of historic significance, surrounding the one hundred year old Sun Rise Building in San Francisco, that survived the 1906 big earthquake The building was many things before it finally held the current bookshop, including a famed bar and upstairs brothel but Grandy s family were the owners at the time of the earthquake You are going to have to wait until nearly the end to find out how that all came about, but you ll be so pleased you did.While most of the story is about all the ways Natalie tries to earn money to pay off the debt so she can keep the bookshop and building, we all know it s about the people she meets that will try to help her do just that Most of the key characters are strong and wonderful individuals, from the staff, to the customers, and a particular handyman named, Peach and his seven year old daughter, Dorothy As Peach makes repairs to the old building, he discovers a few hidden artifacts, some even valuable And who knows, maybe they will find the buried treasure that Grandy insists is in the building somewhere, andabout Grandy s father and his grandparents.You will be immersed in this fantastic adventure so much you will not want to leave it.Thank you
