Summary

It takes a village....

Cloverdale is known for its winding roads, undulating hills and colourful cottages and, more recently, its Library of Things. Need a ladder, a hedge trimmer or a waffle maker? You can borrow it from the Library of Things.

Single dad Adam is doing a good job of raising his daughter Zoe whilst burying his past and moving forwards. When he joins the Library of Things and agrees to run a mending workshop, new friendships start to blossom.

Jennifer is a volunteer at the Library of Things. When her younger sister Isla moves back to Cloverdale after their mother dies, Jennifer finds herself wondering whether Isla is hiding something.

And when Adam's daughter Zoe makes a startling discovery, it's time for the people at the Library of Things to pull together and help one family with its biggest challenge of all.

This is a novel with community at its heart. It's about the kindness we can find when we least expect it and the bonds we can form when we're not even looking.

Deceptive Title

I was looking forward to a story set around the library . Maybe how they went about setting it up and more of the story of how the items were donated.
What the story was more about was secrets and hidden pain. Although the topics spoken about are very important. I would not of chosen this book.

Delivery

The story delivery had a strange delivery speed that I couldn’t alter to be a comfortable listen through the playback speeds. I felt a it a literally hard listen.
