|The Little Paris Bookshop.
Written by Nina George.
I took this delightful book with me, to read while travelling around Central America with my husband. But let me tell you! Despite the beauty of the places I visited, I yearned to be travelling with the protagonist of the story, Jean Perdu; aboard the ‘Literary Apothecary.’ Such a wonderful name for Jean Perdu’s canal barge.
I was transported through the streets of Paris and into the Champagne regions of France. The rivers Seine and Rhone beckoned me to visit, such was the wonderful descriptions that the writer, ‘Nina George’ wove into this charming story.
This is an uplifting story of: love, loss and friendship. I was fascinated by the idea of a books content, helping to heal the tormented mind of a reader. Using books like medicine is a magical concept.
