It is 1968 in rural Australia, and lonely Tom Hope can't figure out Hannah Babel. Newly arrived from Hungary, Hannah is unlike anyone he's ever met -- she's passionate, brilliant, and fiercely determined to open the town's first bookshop. Tom has read only one book in his life, but Hannah hires him to install shelving for the shop, the two discover an astonishing spark. Recently abandoned by an unfaithful wife, Tom dares to believe that he might make Hannah happy. But Hannah is a haunted woman. Twenty-four years earlier, she had been marched to the gates of Auschwitz. Can one unlikely bookshop heal two broken souls?
