Narrator Fiona Hardingham's engaging voice is a perfect fit for this warm audiobook featuring a delightful bookshop called Nightingale Books in a bucolic English village. Emilia Nightingale inherits the shop from her generous and loving father. In spite of multiple frustrations, she attempts to continue the tradition of providing his beloved customers with a book for every need. As patrons and employees of the bookshop are layered into the story, Hardingham makes each voice distinct and expertly alters her pace and tone to match the emotion of every scene, whether humorous or sad. The Peasebrook community offers Emilia support and comfort as she grieves the loss of her father and as she becomes overwhelmed by managing the shop. A delightful feel-good listen.
