    A heartfelt tale that fans of Brit-Lit will love

    The Lost For Words Bookshop Stephanie Butland Butland’s latest is a brilliant piece of Brit-Lit set in York, a tragic yet hopeful story about loss and learning to trust again. It’s a pseudo coming of age tale staring a quirky loveable social outcast with a big heart even though it’s hard to see hidden behind all of her barriers. From page one reader’s spidey-senses will be tingling alerting them to read between the lines and making the novel impossible to put down. The narrative is flowing and easy to read, the author’s clue dangling is exceptional and US readers will have fun with all the Britisms. The characters are incredible and their wagon circling of Loveday is endearing, but it’s Loveday that rules every page, she is a revelation, a complicated heartstring pulling enigma and her courage to let people in even though it goes against all her self-preservation tools is amazing to experience. SUMMARY: Twenty-five year old Loveday Cardew needs anonymity like she needs air to breathe that’s why working for ten years at the Lost For Words used bookstore is perfect for keeping her invisible plus giving her access to the thing that saved her life; books. She’s very comfortable stacking the shelves and staying in the background, leaving the moving, shaking and interacting with customers to her boss Archie, one of the few people she lets into her circle. Because the more people you let in the bigger the chance that you’ll be hurt and your secrets revealed and Loveday has a doozy of a secret. Then one day a handsome magnetic poet/magician walks into her life and shakes up her very existence. He’s light to her dark and suddenly he wiggles his way past her defenses and right into her heart. But all is not sunshine and roses and the secret she’s protected for so long threatens to come out.
