    In a word, compelling. Once I started, I just wanted to be left

    In a word, compelling.
    Once I started, I just wanted to be left alone to read. Characters are well developed, touching, real lives. Thought provoking plot -- what is really worth pursuing in life.

    Awesome Book!!!

    I absolutely loved this book! I had previous read Mary Ann McFadden's prior two books over the past years "Richest Season" and "So Happy Together" , which I thoroughly enjoyed.

    "The Book Lover" was brilliant and belongs on the best seller list! Being an avid reader, I could not put this book down! Her honesty and challenges of being a writer and becoming published was portrayed wonderfully (hats off to MaryAnn), and as a bonus the other correlations and poignant stories between the characters so beautifully portrayed (Ruth/Thomas - the bookstore owner, woman, mother-history and struggles; Lucy's past and present; Colin and the injured birds/healing), the lovely characters you fall in love with at the book store, and Ruth taking Hannah under her wing - did not want the book to end (loved the ending). I would love to see a series or movie with Lucy/Thomas, Colin/Lucy, and a new man possibly for Hannah, and the continuation of Megan and her inspirations with the book store and the quaint town.

    McFadden is an excellent writer and storyteller and she was able to take so many elements and tie them together for a powerful, healing, and uplifting story! In addition, the setting in the quaint small downtown village, woods, nature, cabins, and coast..(my favorite places). Oh, and the St Augustine, FL setting, as well which I lived and worked covering this area previously, so could relate with the surroundings.

    Wow, this book covered all my passions and McFadden put it together and packaged it beautifully - you do not get any better than this! Highly Recommend!! Cannot wait for her next masterpiece! You will want to read her previous works as well. Excellent!"
