The Last Bookshop in London


A Novel


Author: Madeline Martin


A different kind of WWII novel. One from the perspective of the citizens of London. Exceptionally well written. The Last Bookshop in London will leave you inspired to share the stories. 


August 1939: London prepares for war as Hilter's forces sweep across Europe. Grace Bennett has always dreamed of moving to the city, but the bunkers and drawn curtains that she finds her arrival are not what she expected. And she certainly never imagined she'd wind up working at Primose Hill, a dusty old bookshop nestled in the heart of London.


Through blackouts and air raids as the Bliz 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.
