The Library at the Edge of the World

Sometimes a title catches my eye, and sometimes a book cover. While I caution everyone, everywhere to never judge a book by its cover, I often do just that. The Library at the Edge of the World boasted the whole package — a bright cover AND an intriguing title. I couldn’t pass it up.

Hanna Casey finds herself back home on the Finfarran Peninsula on Ireland’s West Coast. After learning that her marriage was a sham, she left her London life to move back in with her aging mother, but when that arrangement turns stale she sets her sights on restoring a small cottage left to her by an aunt. Hanna discovers her job at the library is in jeopardy and she must join together with an unlikely band of volunteers to save the library and the rest of the town as well. 

Felicity Hayes-McCoy writes a charming book about life in a small town, and how we all rely on one another. I really enjoyed The Library at the Edge of the World and look forward to reading her other books.
