Description
Prepare to fall under the spell of "this sometimes whimsical, often insightful, always absorbing story" (Shelf Awareness) following two fiercely independent women and their truly magical friendship in a sleepy Southern town, from New York Times bestselling author of Karen Hawkins.Sarah Dove is no ordinary bookworm. To her, books live, breathe, and sometimes even speak. As the librarian in her quaint Southern town of Dove Pond, her gift helps place every book in the hands of the perfect reader. Recently, however, the books have been whispering about something out of the ordinary: the arrival of a displaced city girl named Grace Wheeler. If the books are right, Grace could be the savior Dove Pond desperately needs. The problem is, Grace wants little to do with the town or its quirky residents—Sarah chief among them. But with a bit of urging, and the help of an especially wise book, will Grace ultimately embrace the challenge to rescue her charmed new community? "A mesmerizing fusion of the mystical and the everyday" (Susan Andersen, New York Times bestselling author), The Book Charmer is a heartwarming story about the magic of books that feels more than a little magical itself.

shortDescription
New York Times bestselling author Karen Hawkins crafts an unforgettable story about a sleepy Southern town, two fiercely independent women, and a truly magical friendship.
Sarah Dove is no ordinary bookworm. To her, books have always been more than just objects: they live, they breathe, and sometimes they even speak. When Sarah grows up to become the librarian in her quaint Southern town of Dove Pond, her gift helps place every book in the hands of the perfect reader. Recently, however, the books have been whispering about something out of the ordinary: the arrival of a displaced city girl named Grace Wheeler.

If the books are right, Grace could be the savior that Dove Pond desperately needs. The problem is, Grace wants little to do with the town or its quirky residents—Sarah chief among them. It takes a bit of urging, and the help of an especially wise book, but Grace ultimately embraces the challenge to rescue her charmed new community. In...

      • content: Three narrators team up to perform this sweet contemporary small-town story. Amanda Ronconi delivers the chapters that focus on local librarian Sarah, who is determined to save her Southern hometown, Dove Pond, from irreversible decline. Grace, portrayed by Tavia Gilbert, has temporarily relocated to the area in an effort to help her found family: an aging foster mother and an orphaned niece. Meanwhile, Sarah's childhood friend, Travis, portrayed by Sebastian York, is struggling with PTSD while mourning the death of his father. The narrators' performances balance the audiobook's humor and romance with the story's deeper issues of trust, loss, and friendship. Ronconi, Gilbert, and York build empathy for the characters' struggles and personal journeys and invest listeners in the ultimate fate of Dove Pond. C.B.L. � AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine
