Emmy Hamilton is at a loss after her husband s death in Afghanistan Her mother convinces her to move to Folly Beach, a South Carolina barrier island, to take over a bookstore Reluctant at first, Emmy only makes up her mind to go when she finds a sort of love letter written in the margin of an old book that came from that store, Folly s Finds The first person she encounters is an irascible old woman, Lulu, who seems downright hostile When she finds out that a condition of her purchasing the store is keeping Lulu on as a tenant for her business designing and selling bottle trees, Emmy nearly gives up But the margin notes in the books are a mystery she cannot abandon, and somehow Lulu holds the key to the full story Going back and forth in time from 2009 to 1943, when Lulu was a nine Another fabulous book from this author I have yet to read anything by her I haven t absolutely loved and am slowly making my way through her books only slowly, because I know once I am all caught up I will be super sad waiting for the next ones to come out.
