A debut novel with heart. June Jones, the introverted library assistant, has lived a boring life for the past eight years. Instead of following her dreams of going to university and becoming a writer, she stayed home to care for her dying mother. Now, she has no friends: her cat Alan Bennett (formerly her mother's cat) hates her; and she spends most nights and weekends staying at home reading her favorite books like "Matilda" and "Pride and Prejudice."

When it is announced that the council is planning on closing six libraries. one of which is her place of employment, some of the patrons form a group to prevent it. All they want is to save their library from closing. From protesting with placards to occupying the library, these patrons, now becoming June's friends, are doing their best to keep the library open.

Will FOCL (Friends of Chalcot Library) succeed in their quest? Will June join them even if she'll lose her job? What will happen to the Chalcot library and their most loyal patrons?

An unexpected ending...

A small box of books, which includes this ARC. I found this novel charming as the villagers and one of the librarians fight for this library. Hope you enjoy it or send to your local LFL for new life.
