“Warmhearted…A charming novel that believes in the healing properties of fiction, romance, and a summer in the south of France.”
NO MAJOR SPOILERS
This book was not my usual genre, but I had read a book blurb in Publishers Weekly and thought I would give it a try. I’m so glad I did.
This book pays homage to books. How they can heal your soul. It’s a love story to books, to food, to friends, and lovers. It is also about a man that has lived his life only in the strictest sense of the word. He has spent 20 plus years nursing a heartbreak.
The main character Perdu owns a little floating Bookshop. It’s parked on Siene. He has isolated himself from most of his neighbors that live in his apartment building, practically friendless. Then a letter is found in a table that he gave a new neighbor.
