Additional Details

"The New York Times bestselling author of Blackberry Winter imagines the inspiration for Goodnight Moon Goodnight Moon is an adored childhood classic, but its real origins are lost to history. In Goodnight June, Sarah Jio offers a suspenseful and heartfelt take on how the "great green room" might have come to be. June Andersen is professionally successful, but her personal life is marred by unhappiness. Unexpectedly, she is called to settle her great-aunt Ruby's estate and determine the fate of Bluebird Books, the children's bookstore Ruby founded in the 1940s. Amidst the store's papers, June stumbles upon letters between her great-aunt and the late Margaret Wise Brown-and steps into the pages of American literature. "

excellent

This was my first time reading Sarah Jio's work - I really liked it! Her characters had depth, the plot was interesting, and the literary ties made it heart warming. What I also liked is that she captured the romance of a new relationship with commitment, integrity and a minimum of smut - I really appreciated that!
