Based on Patricia Clarkson’s 1978 Booker Prize nominated novel, the story follows a young widow’s struggle to bring a bit of culture to a 1950s English village. Her plan is to turn a grand old house into the town’s first bookstore.

The local Grand Dame however has other ideas, which soon turn the village into a political minefield. Battle-lines are drawn between small-mindedness and the winds of change. Lovers of books and admirers of determination will embrace this enchanting film.
