"A store selling other people's memories."

Just occasionally a book comes along which, for whatever reason,stands out from the others to e remembered long after the last page is turned. This is one such book.

After the death of Sarah, his wife, a young widower seems to rebuild himself and his life by restoring his home around him. He carefully and !ovinbly selects items from a local a tique shop, run by 'frumpy'. One item that seems to call to him in the store is an old solid wood door, just perfect, he thinks, for his closet..Nora helps him to fit the heavy door. It looks perfect. But when he opens it he is in for a surprise.

The writing is sedate, beautifully.crafted and understated. Strong characterisation, the situation normal, almost ordinary. There is no major drama, nothing leaping out from dark corners, no passionate love affaires, no feats of great daring do. And it is this very simplicity which transforms the extraordinary into something real and the everyday into pure magic.

Throughout, Alex Silver's gently accented voice, so pleasant to hear, continues the down to earth feeling in his reading, capturing beautifully the slow restoring of the widower himself. A wonderful book, perfectly narrated. Recommended
