Fiction • 9.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2022

Listeners will never doubt that British narrator Karen Cass belongs in the Devonshire village of Middlemass and will feel as welcomed there as out-of-work librarian Jess Metcalf does. When Jess finds herself starting over after losing her beloved grandmother, she has no idea that her new cottage will offer the opportunity to create a library in the phone box on the property. This is a heartwarming story of the villagers forming connections with both the library's books and with Jess herself. Cass's facility with accents brings to life the variety of people in the village while allowing listeners to enjoy Jess's friendships with her nosy neighbors and her wistful longing for the divorced father next door.
