2One bookshop. Fifty-one rules. Three women who break them all.


1950, London. Bloomsbury Books on Lamb’s Conduit Street has resisted change for a hundred years, run by men and guided by the manager’s unbreakable rules. But after the turmoil of war in Europe, the world is changing and the women in the shop have plans.


As the paths of stylish Vivien, loyal Grace and brilliant Evie cross with literary figures such as Daphne Du Maurier, Samuel Beckett and Peggy Guggenheim, these Bloomsbury girls are working together to plot out a richer and more rewarding future.


"A timely and beautiful ode to ambition, friendship, bookshops, and the written word" - Janet Skeslien Charles, author of The Paris Library
