Publisher's Summary

Daydreamer Nora has inherited all of her grandmother's worldly belongings.

Nora dreads seeing her beloved grandmother's possessions go, but she's determined that item by item, memory by memory, she will find the perfect new owners.

When she opens The Memory Shop in the front of her grandmother's house, the community is gradually drawn inside, and Nora begins transforming the lives of those around her through the objects she pairs them with.

    Story
    "Unexpected aversion to the narrator"

    This is the first purchase I've returned to audible. I just couldn't stand the narration. I thought she had a lovely voice, it was the reading style that did me in. I'm really surprised by my reaction and can't really explain it, apart from sentences trailing off into nothing where I expected emphasis really drove me mad!
