Ellen Berry's book, The Bookshop on Rosemary Lane, deserved its very own review post. This book is one of the best that I have read recently. In a word it is charming. Della's mother passes away, and she takes her mother's cookbooks - all 900+. With her husband Mark growing more disconnected and her daughter headed to college, Della gets the grand idea of opening a bookshop full of nothing but cookbooks. Mark is totally against the idea, but Della presses forward.
I loved Della's spunk and sense of adventure even when things are not always going her way. The idea of a bookshop full of cookbooks is wonderful. I can relate perfectly to collecting cookbooks. The only bad thing was that I did reach the end of the book. I was thrilled to find that two more books are in the works. I will definitely be taking a trip back to Della's Rosemary Lane!
If you are looking for a heartwarming story, I highly recommend The Bookshop on Rosemary Lane. You will not be disappointed.
