England, 1959. In a small East Anglia town, Florence Green decides, against polite but ruthless local opposition, to open a bookshop.

England, 1959. Free-spirited widow Florence Green risks everything to open a bookshop in a conservative East Anglia coastal town. While bringing about a surprising cultural awakening through works by Ray Bradbury and Vladimir Nabokov, she earns the polite but ruthless opposition of a local grand dame and the support and affection of a reclusive book loving widower.

As Florence’s obstacles amass and bear suspicious signs of a local power struggle, she is forced to ask: Is there a place for a bookshop in a town that may not want one?

Based on (the novel) by Penelope Fitzgerald.
