What a great read! This is the story of A.J. Fikry, the owner of Island Books, a quaint little bookstore on Alice Island who, after losing his wife, begins a downhill journey into self loathing and depression, only to be saved by a beautiful young lady with whom he has one important thing in common…books. I’m not going to fully admit this on the internet, but I may have cried a bit at the end.
More Things in Heaven and Earth is the first installment of the Watervalley series. Jeff paints a humerous, and wonderfully quaint picture of life in rural Tennessee. Add a little drama, and maybe the beginnings of a future romance, and you have a fantastic story that will leave you wanting more, which is great because the follow up book, Each Shining Hour, is now available!
