The Lost Bookshop by Evie Woods

This lovely and magical story features three book lovers who become entwined with a lost bookshop that spans 19th and 20th century Ireland. Opaline attempts to break the barriers that aim to confine and subjugate women as she runs from a forced marriage; Martha is running from an abusive husband; and Henry is trying to find an elusive break into the book world. The relationships between the characters are engaging, full of mystery, and wonderfully connected.  It is difficult to put down The Lost Bookshop (2023) by Evie Woods with its “leave you hanging” chapter endings and touches of magic and fantasy.

For something similar to Evie Woods’ debut, check out Once Upon a River (2018) by Diane Setterfield. And for more bookish stories, check out our list of Books for Book Lovers.
