    Like Opening a Favorite Gift

    This is my favorite book that I have read by this author. It is one you want to devour but make last and savor at the same time. I loved the POV writing from Janet, Claire, and Madeleine’s perspectives. The chapters are titled as such so it was easy to know whose viewpoint you were reading. Each of the women are at different stages in life and are trying to sort through life while at the same time trying to save the bookshop they have grown to love for different reasons. The bookshop and quotes from books are an added bonus to the story. I love the inspirational thread that is woven in gently and how it especially affects Janet. It is a story of hope, Grace, Mercy, and forgiveness and also has a budding romance. My favorite character is Janet and how she learns to humble herself and to find those simple words that pack a powerful punch, I’m sorry. This book in my opinion is the complete package tied up with a beautiful red bow. This will go on my keeper shelf. I won a copy in an author chat. The honest review and opinions are own and were not required.

    LOVE, FRIENDSHIP & FAMILY

    Katherine Reay has provided readers another outstanding novel with THE PRINTED LETTER BOOKSHOP! It is exploding with the themes of love, friendship and family. Many people will be drawn to this novel because it’s main setting is a small, independent Bookshop. Lots of love and living went into the establishment by its original owners and continues through the ladies who subsequently joined in to help. A surprised heir is given the Bookshop and suddenly the lives of three generations of women are tested - What do they expect from each other? What do they really want out of life? And the biggest question of all - Who am I at this stage of my life? They are able to find the answers to these questions and so many more by working together and following the instructions left them in individualized letters and by following their attached Reading Lists. I was provided an ARC of this book by Thomas Nelson Publishers and NetGalley. The opinions expressed here are completely my own and without influence.

    Bookstores are special places

    I’m always interested in learning about a book title and how it came to be. The Printed Letter Bookshop turned out totally different from what I first thought. Grab a copy for yourself and let’s see what you think about what the title might mean. It was a wonderful idea! I love bookstores and this one felt like home to me. I could almost see and smell the books and see the displays as they were described. The main character Madeline inherited the store when her Aunt Maddie passed away. Being an up and coming lawyer seeking a partnership in a big prestigious law firm, Madeline just wanted to sell the store, her aunt’s house and car and move on with her life. But our plans are not always God’s plans for us. I loved how Madeline changed and developed her character throughout the pages. Her relationship with the two female employees of her aunt’s bookstore changed over time as well. Disasters, big debt, and personal problems seem to derail Madeleines plans that she first makes concerning her inheritance. But oh how things can change! I enjoyed this multifaceted story and the characters and took my time savoring each chapter. I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher through Celebrate Lit but was not required to write a review positive or otherwise.

    An Interesting life experience

    The Printed Letter Bookshop is presented from the viewpoints of three generations of women with one thing in common - the old fashioned book store that keeps them all sane. Even in their small town of Eagle Valley, 40 miles outside of Chicago, the pace of life is occasionally frantic. The Printed Letter Bookshop is not - Maddie and her helpers Claire and Joyce make sure of that. It is a haven of peace in the town, for all generations of readers. The bookshop is the hard work of Madeline Cullen Carter and her husband Pete, now both lost to cancer. We open this story at the funeral for Maddie, attended by essentially the whole town, and her only family, brother and wife Charlotte from NY and niece Madeline, a lawyer in Chicago. Everything is still up in the air about the shop, Maddie's home, her car. Claire is the mother of two teenagers, an always hungry boy, and a surly daughter. Claire is happily married to a busy busy man and loving her work at the bookstore. She handles the bills, the orders, and loves the interaction with her co-workers and customers. She is very aware of the fact that the shop has not been making enough money over the last couple of years, and fears that if Maddie's estranged brother inherits he will immediately sell the store. And she has no idea there is now a second mortgage on both the house and the shop. Janet is a recently divorced mother of two, estranged from her grown children since the divorce before which she cheated on their father. Ex-husband Seth is often in and out of the shop, but they rarely speak. Along with the family, most of the locals also hold her responsible for the breakup of her family. As does Janet herself. The bookshop allows her a rhythm to her life, the artistic outlet she can no longer find in her world elsewhere. Her days are spent dressing beautiful window displays and selling stories. Her son has a new daughter, her first grandchild which she has not been invited to visit. Her daughter doesn't speak to Janet on the street or answer her calls. The last couple of months Janet basically lived with Maddie, coordinating her hospice care and keeping her company, cooking, and cleaning and handling visitors. She, too, will be lost without the book store. And as a single woman, she has to have an income. Niece Madeline is 31, working for a highly respected law firm in downtown Chicago, putting in 80 hour weeks and filling her awesome apartment with exquisite antiques, her idea of saving for the future since her father's hedge fund lost everyone's savings, including most of Madeline's high school friends families and her Aunt Maddie and Uncle Pete. She had spent part of that summer of the crash of 2000 with Maddie and Pete, and loved them both, but because her Dad and Maddie had a big fight when he came to pick her up and have since not spoken, Madeline felt her loyalty to her father precluded a relationship with her aunt, and she hadn't seen her since. Only 40 miles away, she was always polite, always busy when Maddie called. And no one in the family knew she was dying. Very few people in her town of Eagle Valley knew she was dying until she was nearly gone. So Madeline, who inherits all that Maddie left, carries a lot of guilt with her as she attempts to figure out what to do with her own future. Overlooked for Partner, she isn't willing to give more 80 hour weeks to the firm, as anyone overlooked the first round has never made partner at her workplace. She quits and heads to Eagle Valley to sort out the store, get the properties on the market, send out resumes to other law firms. And finds a life. This is a clean, compelling read, one I am happy to refer to friends and family. Katherine Reay is an author I will follow. I received a free electronic copy of this excellent novel from Netgalley, Katherine Reay, and Thomas Nelson publisher. Thank you all for sharing your hard work with me. I have read this book of my own volition, and this review reflects my honest opinion of this work.

    A book for bibliophiles

    The Printed Letter Bookshop is told from Claire, Janet and Madeline’s point-of-views. Each woman is struggling and a letter from Maddie along with a book list acts as a guide. As the story progresses, we find out what has happened to each woman, how Maddie entered their lives and how the bookshop made a difference. The story is nicely written with mild pacing. I was not immediately drawn into the story. It became more interesting the further I progressed into The Printed Letter Bookshop. The at first unlikeable characters began to grow on me, and I like seeming them come together. The ending is smile worthy. The descriptions of Janet’s window displays and artwork were enchanting (I wish this was my local bookstore). I enjoyed the numerous book references (bibliophiles will be thrilled) and quotes. Aunt Maddie’s description of The Secret Garden was delightful. There are two quotes I want to share with you. The first is “. . . you could lose yourself in a book and, paradoxically, find yourself as well” (very true). The second one made me laugh out loud “my hot flashes last longer than that service”. The Printed Letter Bookshop is for those readers who love all types of books, Hallmark movies and happy endings.
