December 2018

"[A] novel... you can lose yourself in." Bustle

"Charming." HelloGiggles

"Perfect for summer vacation." Southern Living

"[A] great read." Philadelphia Inquirer, Best Book of Summer 2018 selection

“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

“[Readers] will be charmed by this tale of self-discovery and new beginnings.” Library Journal, Best Debut of Summer 2018 selection

“Meyerson writes beautifully... A lovely look at loss, family, and the comfort found in a good bookstore.” Kirkus Reviews

“[A] novel with an unalloyed sweetness at its heart.” Toronto Star


“Wonderful… completely transporting.”  (Madeline Miller, author of Circe and The Song of Achilles)

“Splendid…. One of the delights of this knowingly preposterous story is the dialectic it constructs between the real and the fantastic…. Each quality… infects the other: The real world of 18th-century London seems both lavish and perishable, and the fantastic world of mermaids feels deadly real.” (John Vernon, New York Times Book Review)

“This glittering debut novel examines every rung of 18th-century London’s social ladder with keen wit and in delicious detail.” (People)

“Set in 18th-century England, with characters you might meet in a Jane Austen novel…. Gowar writes rounded, believable personalities. Her language crackles with ingenuity and grace, and she has an eye for the everyday particulars.” (Chicago Tribune)

“Gowar’s dreamy debut, about a merchant who encounters a mermaid-like creature in 1780s London, reads like an irresistibly of-the-moment fairy tale.” (Entertainment Weekly)
