The heartwarming new novel from the international million-copy bestselling author of THE LITTLE PARIS BOOKSHOP
'Everyone knows me, but none can see me. I'm that thing you call love'
In a small town in balmy Provence, Marie-Jeanne has a gift.
She can see the marks Love has left on the people around her. Glowing faces, hands that shimmer brighter when enclosed in another. Before long, Marie-Jeanne is playing matchmaker.
When her foster father, Francis, sets up a mobile library travelling the many mountain towns of the Nyons region, Marie-Jeanne takes her quest further. Their library offers entertainment, guidance, reassurance and comfort - but for Marie-Jeanne, the books also allow her to bring soulmates together.
The only person that Marie-Jeanne can't seem to find a partner for is herself. She has no glow of her own, though she waits and waits for it to appear.
Everyone must have a soulmate, surely - but will Marie-Jeanne be able to recognise hers when Love finally comes her way?
From the author of the million-copy bestseller The Little Paris Bookshop comes a tender story about how a love of books is a love of life itself.
