“The Music Shop” by Rachel Joyce is a “deceptively simple love story.” Frank is the eccentric owner of a hole-in-the-wall London music store that only sells vinyl records. His quiet little life is upended when a stranger faints outside his shop. Joyce’s “lovable misfits” continue to “enchant and break hearts” (Library Journal). In “Heart Spring Mountain”, a tropical storm tears through Vermont and stirs up family drama. When a substance addled woman goes missing, her daughter leaves her bartending job in New Orleans to come search for her. Once there, she encounters her aunt and a widowed cousin-in-law, still living on the family mountain. “The resulting narrative is nuanced, poetic, and evocative; MacArthur empathetically depicts each of her characters in their wounded but hopeful glory” (Publishers Weekly).
