Love lives between the lines.

Years ago, Rachel had a crush on Henry Jones. The day before she moved away, she tucked a love letter into his favorite book in his family’s bookshop. She waited. But Henry never came.

Now Rachel has returned to the city—and to the bookshop—to work alongside the boy she’d rather not see, if at all possible, for the rest of her life. But Rachel needs the distraction, and the escape. Her brother drowned months ago, and she can’t feel anything anymore. She can’t see her future.

Henry’s future isn’t looking too promising, either. His girlfriend dumped him. The bookstore is slipping away. And his family is breaking apart.

As Henry and Rachel work side by side—surrounded by books, watching love stories unfold, exchanging letters between the pages—they find hope in each other. Because life may be uncontrollable, even unbearable sometimes. But it’s possible that words, and love, and second chances are enough.


This was such a great book. With the prefect book store and grief at the heart of it. I really liked both main characters so much. I love the letters/notes that we got throughout the novel it added so much to the story. I love the various mysteries that were present and also the elements of self. discovery for all the characters. It was very well done. I just want to visit that book store cause it sounds so lovely. It was book the focuses on the impact books can have on a life and i enjoyed it!
