Description

Loveday Cardew prefers books to people, and her job in a York bookshop is her refuge. If you look carefully, you might see the first lines of the novels she loves the most tattooed on her skin, but there are secrets Loveday will never share.

Into the bookshop come a poet, a lover, a friend and three mysterious deliveries, each of which stirs unsettling memories she wants to forget. Turning the pages of her past will be the hardest thing Loveday has ever done. Can she trust those around her? Can she right a heartbreaking wrong? And will she find the words to tell her own story?

A lovely novel

Characters with depth and feelings, true and relatable... Everything rings true in this novel. The choice of narration is very well executed and suits the story perfectly. Imogen Church's performance is flawless and I believe her voice brings something to the book you wouldn't find in reading it yourself.

Beautiful

I mostly enjoy mysteries and crime novels and although this book does have its own secrets to tell - it's a bit different to my normal book.

This book has found a way into my heart, so much so, that I'll be purchasing the hard copy to keep. The author has a mastery of words and humor and the deepest part of the how and why of her characters behaviors.

I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

Couldn't finish

I think this could have been a very nice story but at the beginning of each chapter is a long list of letters, a really long list. I found it so irritating I couldn't finish the book.

“Show, don’t tell”

The story and characters make good bones of this book...but the writing lets them down. The writer has a lot to learn about the concept of “show don’t tell,” to keep her audience engaged with the story and characters. The internal monologues get carried away, leaving the story (and the reader) behind. I found myself skipping ahead to get back to the story, and it’s telling that I didn’t miss any pertinent details when I did so. It’s a shame, really, because this book could really make a statement about standing up to domestic violence and its perpetrators.

Worth It

This story is gut-wrenching in parts, but ultimately hopeful. So good I listened straight through. Narration is excellent. Well worth a credit.

Loved it!

I absolutely adored this book. I rarely find a book that I care so much about, but these characters and this story will never leave me. The author definitely knows how to win the heart of the reader. I look forward to listening to it again, and again!

Really enjoyed this book.

Love Imogen Church as a narrator. Looked for books narrated by her since I liked other books she has narrated and found Lost for Words. The title fits the main character Loveday perfectly. The characters and story left me wanting more.

The Story Kept On Giving

I have read many books & listened to many audible books!! This book is 1 of 4 that has EVER made me cry. The story hit home so deep & the tears came for happy parts and the sad parts. Absolutely a BEAUTIFUL story of love, loss, friends made & even an awful boyfriend. Lol. It has mystery, giggles & even healing of hearts & lives. Well written & just awesome characters development, in every way! I pictured the people & places as if I was watching a movie!! I thought I was the "Queen of the stupid questions" however , Loveday claimed the title in the book. I loved the laugh with her sense of humour & her sharp edges. Loveday was a character I related to the most. Imogen Church NEVER disappointed me in any book she narrated!! Her reading, emotions, intensity, all absolutely perfect!! I couldn't think of a better voice to have been Loveday.

Drags With The Flashbacks

It is apparent that Loveday (good old Cornish name) had a difficult childhood. She keeps that a secret by maintaining a physical and emotional distance from people. It's hard to like Loveday as she's constantly pushing people away. The flashbacks aren't that enjoyable as eventually, it will lead up to those tragic events that she has kept hidden. It picks up towards the end and many of the characters are shown to have more depth than how they appeared through most of the book.
