I would have loved The Little Paris Bookshop even if Nina George hadn't crafted such a beautiful work. That is because the book was a gift from one of my children who picked it out knowing it was exactly the kind of sentimental story a sentimental mom would love. It is about a bookseller who prescribes the right book for the right reader to help them overcome whatever difficulties they are facing in life. More than a book about bibliotherapy, it is about friendship and love. Ms. George's descriptions of the French countryside are enhanced by the inclusion of recipes at the back of the book. (Each recipe features the flavors of Provence.)
If you are looking for an enchanting summer read, try The Little Paris Bookshop, by Nina George.
