  • Genre: Fiction

What you need to know before your trail

Teenager Tom has always blended into the background of life. After a row with his dad and facing an unhappy future at the dog food factory, he escapes to the library.

Pensioner Maggie has been happily alone with her beloved novels for ten years – at least, that’s what she tells herself.

When they meet, they recognise something in each other that will change both their lives for ever.

Then the library comes under threat of closure, and they must join forces to prove that it’s not just about books – it’s the heart of their community.

They are determined to save it – because some things are worth fighting for.

Travel Guide

Discover the magic of a library

The books looks at the importance of a library and how reading can bring people together. In the novel an old lady and a young boy come together and learn about community and how books can save people from loneliness.

The library is the focus of the novel but this is the springboard for so many other themes around farming, community and what libraries mean for people.

The library in the novel might be fictional but go to any library and you can feel you are in this one! A haven of books every one!
