What you need to know before your trail

It’s almost Christmas and snow is falling in the Cotswolds. Simon and Nora are gearing up for the festive season – but their bookshop is in trouble.

Nora is delighted when a customer buys a book that’s been on the shelves for years, but that won’t be enough to keep the bailiffs away.

Fuelled by mulled wine and mince pies, Nora and Simon hatch a plan to rouse community spirit, sending out six books to lonely villagers. The books change the recipients’ lives, but is it too late to change the bookshop’s fate?

Travel Guide

Booktrail it to the Cotswolds

Travel to fictional Stowford where this book is set and travel around the  Cotswolds to find the bookshop in the novel!

There’s plenty of them and lots of lovely bookish moments such as:

“She’d been lucky to travel the world through books, touring South America through the works of Gabriel Garcia Marquez, and Isabelle Allende,  visiting India through Salman Rushdie and Vikram Seth’s novels.”

”Books bring people together and make us stronger. How even the loneliest and most difficult times in our lives, books give us hope and remind us that we’re not alone.”
