&;Part mystery and part drama, Meyerson uses a complex family dynamic in
The Bookshop of Yesterdays to spotlight the importance of truth and our need for forgiveness.&; &;Associated Press

A woman inherits a beloved bookstore and sets forth on a journey of self-discovery in this poignant debut about family, forgiveness and a love of reading.

Miranda Brooks grew up in the stacks of her eccentric Uncle Billy&;s bookstore, solving the inventive scavenger hunts he created just for her. But on Miranda&;s twelfth birthday, Billy has a mysterious falling-out with her mother and suddenly disappears from Miranda&;s life. She doesn&;t hear from him again until sixteen years later when she receives unexpected news: Billy has died and left her Prospero Books, which is teetering on bankruptcy&;and one final scavenger hunt.

When Miranda returns home to Los Angeles and to Prospero Books&;now as its owner&;she finds clues that Billy has hidden for her inside novels on the store&;s shelves, in locked drawers of his apartment upstairs, in the name of the store itself. Miranda becomes determined to save Prospero Books and to solve Billy&;s last scavenger hunt. She soon finds herself drawn into a journey where she meets people from Billy&;s past, people whose stories reveal a history that Miranda&;s mother has kept hidden&;and the terrible secret that tore her family apart.

Bighearted and trenchantly observant, The Bookshop of Yesterdays is a lyrical story of family, love and the healing power of community. It&;s a love letter to reading and bookstores, and a testament to how our histories shape who we become.
