Description

In a small East Anglian town, Florence Green decides, against polite but ruthless local opposition, to open a bookshop. Hardborough becomes a battleground. Florence has tried to change the way things have always been done and as a result, she has to take on not only the people who have made themselves important, but natural and even supernatural forces too. Her fate will strike a chord with anyone who knows that life has treated them with less than justice.

Professional reviews

"“A marvellously piercing fiction.” TIMES LITERARY SUPPLEMENT “Wise and ironic, funny and humane, Fitzgerald is a wonderful, wonderful writer.” DAVID NICHOLLS “Reading a Penelope Fitzgerald novel is like being taken for a ride in a peculiar kind of car. Everything is of top quality.” SEBASTIAN FAULKS"
