I wish I read this earlier!

This is one of the most hopeful book i’ve read because it taught me the basic of human relation. How wonderful it is to have someone to share interest and connect through book orders and purchases. From something transactional into a profound relation. It’s a very unique story and such a moving lesson to appreciate different people, the written word and books!

Enjoy This Book As Much As I Did

Beautiful - with such a genuine reflection of the period and different cultures of the two main characters. A love story of sorts built on human kindness, intellect and decency
