On a quiet street in Dublin, a lost bookshop is waiting to be found…

For too long, Opaline, Martha and Henry have been the side characters in their own lives.

But when a vanishing bookshop casts its spell, these three unsuspecting strangers will discover that their own stories are every bit as extraordinary as the ones found in the pages of their beloved books.

  • Great story… but

    I found this book to be great. It literally got me back into reading after so many years. However, I found all of Opaline’s chapters to be painfully dry, dull, and often times outright boring. I never realized a storybook character could be so stale. I definitely dreaded reading her chapters. Other than that it was wonderful!
  • Very Enchanting Book
