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?

This is such a wonderful book! Beautiful, thoughtful, marvellous characters and characterisation. The performance is perfect! Absolutely recommend! It is about love and forgiveness and friendship and I want to read/listen to it again.

The last days of Narnia, and all hope seems lost as lies and treachery interweave to threaten the destruction of everything. As the battle lines are drawn, old friends are summoned back to Narnia, though none can predict the outcome in this magnificent ending to the famous series.

This story is just tremendous, beautiful, imaginative and thought-provoking! Absolutely read it and all the Narnia books! Patrick Stewart does a great job reading except when he has to voice some of the animal characters (mice, a certain lamb, Farsight the eagle, Reepicheep) -- these sounded very squeaky and unpleasant. But the book itself is marvellous!
