The Little Paris Bookshop
by Nina George
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This was a charming book about love and loss and the importance of friends to help you deal with stuff. It was also a love letter to books and to France, especially Provence. The tone of it reminded me a little bit of Chocolat. The main character, M. Perdu, has a bookshop on a barge where he "prescribes" books to his customers to help them with their problems. He ends up on a journey through the canals of France as he tries to heal his own broken heart.
This book counts as my French title for the European Reading Challenge.
