Michelle Lindo-Rice, author of The Bookshop Sisterhood, a novel “that will stay with the reader long after the last page. Absolutely brilliant,” said Kristan Higgins, a New York Times bestselling author.

The book is relatable. After years of hard work, four best friends—Celeste, Yasmeen, Toni and Leslie—are finally on the verge of opening the bookstore of their dreams, a place where their community can find solace with an intriguing new read, a comforting beverage and book-loving friends.

But before they can cut the ribbon, their worlds are upended.

Toni receives devastating news just months before her wedding, while Celeste’s struggling marriage threatens to collapse completely. Leslie learns a shocking secret about her family, and a lotto ticket changes Yasmeen’s life—but not for the better.

As the bookstore’s grand opening fast approaches, the four women must lean on each other now more than ever to navigate their grief and uncertainty. And together, they’ll learn that sometimes, even life’s most unexpected plot twists can lead to beautiful new beginnings.

This page-turner is in keeping with Michelle’s other engaging books, including Able to Love and On The Right Path series, an Emma Award Winner and a Vivian Award finalist. Originally from Jamaica West Indies, she has earned degrees from New York University, SUNY at Stony Brook, Teachers College Columbia University, Argosy University and has been educator for more than 20 years.
