The Book Lover

Published by Kim Bellard
Sean Meil comes to believe he has failed his wife. In dismay, he walks away from his job, his wife, his home -- from everything he knows. He sets up a new life in a new city, hoping only for oblivion. However, Sean is not the kind of person who can avoid helping other people. Against his initial intentions, Sean becomes deeply involved in the lives of the people around him, as well as in the success of the small bookstore in which he has come to work. Even more surprisingly, his wife manages to reappear in his life, with motives that are unclear to him. Sean finds he can’t escape making choices about what he wants from life – and from whom.

Ultimately, The Book Lover is about revitalization – of a bookstore, of a neighborhood, of Sean and his friends, and of love itself. It is a story for anyone who has ever been tempted to try to start fresh in life.
