Read the bestselling author of The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry's latest novel about love and the journey through music.
Rachel Joyce's latest is a love letter to the power of music. In it, a struggling record shop attracts an eclectic group of customers through its owner, Frank, who instinctively knows what music they'll respond to.
When the enigmatic Ilse appears, though, Frank must do some soul-searching of his own. Charmingly written with lots of background to well-known tunes—from Puccini to Duke Ellington to the Sex Pistols—The Music Shop is a must-read for those with a song in their heart.
The Music Shop (Bond Street Books) by Rachel Joyce, $32.
