The Bookshop on the Shore AudioBook Summary
A grand baronial house on Loch Ness, a quirky small-town bookseller, and a single mom looking for a fresh start all come together in this witty and warmhearted novel by New York Times best-selling author Jenny Colgan.
Desperate to escape from London, single mother Lottie wants to build a new life for herself and her son, Raffie. She can barely afford the crammed studio apartment on a busy street where honking horns and shouting football fans keep them awake all night. If she doesn’t find a way out soon, Lottie knows it’s just a matter of time before she has a complete meltdown. On a whim, she answers an ad for a nanny job in the Scottish Highlands, which is about as far away from the urban crush of London as possible. It sounds heavenly!
The job description asks for someone capable of caring for two…well, the advertisement says “gifted children”; the reality is more like “feral wolverines”. The children’s widowed father is a wreck, and the kids run wild in a huge tumbledown castle on the heather-strewn banks of Loch Ness. Still, the peaceful, picturesque location is everything London is not – and Lottie rises to the challenges of the job.
