"Originally published in Germany as Südlichter by Knaur Verlag ... in 2019. This translation published in the United Kingdom by Michael Joseph"--Title page verso.
A young woman with the extraordinary power to bring soulmates together searches for her own true love in this tender, lyrical novel. In Nina George's New York Times bestseller The Little Paris Bookshop, literary apothecary Jean Perdu was inspired to create a floating bookstore after reading a pseudonymous novel about a young woman with a remarkable gift. The Little Village of Book Lovers is that novel. "Everyone knows me, but none can see me. I'm that thing you call 'ove." In a little town in the south of France in the 1960s, a dazzling encounter with Love itself changes the life of infant orphan Marie-Jeanne forever. As a girl, Marie-Jeanne realizes she can see the marks Love has left on the people around her--little glowing lights on the faces and hands that shimmer more brightly when the one meant for them is near. Before long, Marie-Jeanne is playing matchmaker, bringing true loves together in her village. As she grows up, Marie-Jeanne helps her foster father, Francis, create a mobile library that travels throughout the many small mountain towns in the region of Nyons. She finds herself bringing soulmates together every place they go--and books always play a pivotal role in that quest. However, the only person that Marie-Jeanne can't seem to find a soulmate for is herself. She has no glow of her own, though she waits and waits for it to appear. Everyone must have a soulmate, surely--but will Marie-Jeanne be able to recognize hers when Love finally comes her way?,Provided by publisher.
