Loveday Cardew prefers books to people, and her job in a York bookshop is her refuge. If you look carefully, you might see the first lines of the novels she loves the most tattooed on her skin, but there are secrets Loveday will never share. Into the bookshop come a poet, a lover, a friend and three mysterious deliveries, each of which stirs unsettling memories she wants to forget. Turning the pages of her past will be the hardest thing Loveday has ever done. Can she trust those around her?

I loved the way this book was written - the use of language, the metaphors, the internalising dialogue of Loveday. I thought the storyline was a little idealistic towards the end. The narration by Imogen Church was exceptional - absolutely loved the voice she gave Loveday.
