I believe this is the first book in a series. I like Sarah, I related to her and how she feels about books (can I be honest and say that I sometimes feel the same way) Sarah has lived in her small town forever and is the town librarian. She is part of a family who seems to have special abilities. Enter Grace who is a city girl through and through and she arrives in town to help her foster mother with Alzheimers and also help with her niece who has recently become an orphan. She deals with her foster mother as she declines and manages to find her place in this new town.
I love books that portray a small town as wonderful and magical as Karen Hawkins did with the Book Charmer. It made me miss the small town in South Carolina where I spend my summers.
