's review

The Stationery Shop is a beautifully mastered historical fiction love story that gripped me as soon as I read the opening letter by the senior editor Jackie Cantor. She writes: 'The wealth of feeling it evokes - of young love, of loss and grief, of the valiant but ultimately vain effort to leave the past behind, and of the unexpected connections that can heal us - is so resonant and deeply imagined that I defy anyone who reads it to remain unmoved." Her words alone drew me in and, upon finishing this story, I admit that I wholeheartedly agree with her. This novel is now being added to my list of all time favorite novels. It stirred such strong emotions in me and has left a long-lasting impression upon me. I cannot possibly write a review that captures this book as perfectly as the senior editor did.
