The Library by Bella Osborne

Today I’m sharing a mini review for The Library by Bella Osborne, one of the kindle 99p deals I read last month.


Teenager Tom has always blended into the background of life. After a row with his dad and facing an unhappy future at the dog food factory, he escapes to the library.

Pensioner Maggie has been happily alone with her beloved novels for ten years – at least, that’s what she tells herself.

When they meet, they recognise something in each other that will change both their lives for ever.

Then the library comes under threat of closure, and they must join forces to prove that it’s not just about books – it’s the heart of their community.

They are determined to save it – because some things are worth fighting for.

My thoughts:

As Storm Arwen arrived in the UK, I decided to download a sample of this ebook to my kindle after seeing a reminder on social media of the 99p deal. After reading the sample, I bought the book and promptly read it to the end.

I’ve read and enjoyed a few of Bella’s books in the past couple of years and this is my new favourite. Full of great characters and with a library facing closure needing support, this is the perfect story for people who love to read,

The story features families facing difficulties, community spirit, secrets, learning to trust and a love of books. I’m happy to recommend this book and plan to buy copies as gifts now that the paperback edition has been published.
