Summer Hours at the Robbers Library
April 05, 2018
WOMEN'S FICTION, AUDIO BOOK
I admit it, I couldn't resist. Summer Hours at the Robbers Library just had to be read, or rather listened to, as I downloaded the audio cd to help me get through some miles on my treadmill. Cute and simple on the surface, only to reveal deeper issues as the story progresses, it is the story of Sunny, a teenage girl who is doing community service at the local library where she meets Kit, a quiet librarian who just wants to be left alone. Add in a few other eccentric characters and the listener is transported into a very believable small town that is inhabited by a cast of layered characters that reflect some complex, emotional issues. Readers of a "A Man Called Ove" or "The Readers of Broken Wheel Recommend" will like this too.
