The Storied Life of A. J. Fikry – Gabrielle Zevin

This was a nice story about a man, a bookstore owner, A. J. Fikry. His wife had recently died and the story begins a short time after that event. It relates how he becomes the father of an abandoned baby girl, courts and marries again, and lives the rest of his life until he (spoiler alert!) dies (I won’t say how).

Nothing earth shattering, but a decent story with good characters. Others have reviewed this book very favorably and it was apparently #1 on the National Indie Best Seller List, so it’s worth a look.
