Pero cuando en su vida aparece Hannah Babel, la alegre y exc ntrica mujer que quiere montar una librer a en el pueblo, l se atreve a so ar que podr an ser felices juntos. Sin embargo, en 1968 solo han transcurrido veinticuatro a os desde que Hannah llegara a Auschwitz con su hijo peque o y saliera sola. Y Tom se enfrenta a una batalla contra el dolor y el recuerdo que todav a apenas puede imaginar. ENGLISH DESCRIPTION A tender and wise novel about love, family, and forgiveness in 1960s Australia, in which a lonely farmer finds his world turned upside down by a vibrant woman determined to open the first bookstore his town has ever seen--and to leave her haunting memories of the Holocaust far behind. Beautifully written. --Garth Stein A poignant journey of unthinkable loss, love, and the healing capacity of the written word. --Ellen Keith Reminds us of the redemptive power of sharing our stories. I will remember this novel for a long time to come. --Steven Rowley Can one unlikely bookshop heal two broken souls? It is 1968 in rural Australia and lonely Tom Hope can't make heads or tails of Hannah Babel. Newly arrived from Hungary, Hannah is unlike anyone he's ever met--she's passionate, brilliant, and fiercely determined to open sleepy Hometown's first bookshop. Despite the fact that Tom has only read only one book in his life, when Hannah hires him to install shelving for the shop, the two discover an astonishing spark. Recently abandoned by an unfaithful wife--and still missing her sweet son, Peter--Tom dares to believe that he might make Hannah happy. But Hannah is a haunted woman. Twenty-four years earlier, she had been marched to the gates of Auschwitz. Perfect for fans of The Little Paris Bookshop and The Light Between Oceans, The Bookshop of the Broken Hearted cherishes the power of love, literature, and forgiveness to transform our lives, and--if we dare allow them--to mend our broken hearts.
