'Sarah Jio's writing is exquisite and engrossing' Elin Hilderbrand
A remarkable story of friendship, love, and the mystery behind a beloved classic...
Acclaimed writer June Andersen is professionally successful, but her personal life is marred by unhappiness. When she is unexpectedly called to settle her great-aunt Ruby's estate and determine the fate of Bluebird Books, June doesn't have a choice and it provides the perfect escape.
Ruby founded her beloved children's bookstore, Bluebird Books, in the 1940s and was always an inspiration to June as she began her own writing career. As June throws herself into the store and her great-aunt's items she stumbles upon letters between her great-aunt and the late Margaret Wise Brown amidst the store's papers - and steps into the pages of American literature.
As June uncovers her great-aunt Ruth's secrets, is it finally time for her life to begin to flourish again?
