Set in a picturesque Cotswold village, The Telephone Box Library is an uplifting story about fresh starts and new beginnings, by bestselling author of The Village Green Bookshop, Rachael Lucas.

'A delightful slice of escapism tied up with a gorgeous, romantic ribbon' - Cathy Bramley, author of A Vintage Summer.

The Cotswolds: the perfect retreat for a stressed-out teacher. And Lucy has found just the right cottage for a bargain rent. All she has to do is keep an eye on Bunty, her extremely feisty ninety-something neighbour . . .

With her West Highland terrier Hamish at her side, Lucy plans to relax and read up on the women of nearby Bletchley Park. But the villagers of Little Maudley have other ideas, and she finds herself caught up in the campaign to turn a dilapidated telephone box into a volunteer-run library.

Along the way, she makes friends with treehouse designer Sam, and finds herself falling for the charms of village life. And it seems Bunty has a special connection to Bletchley Park and the telephone box – one that she's kept secret for decades . . .

'I loved it! Intrigue, romance, and utterly compelling' – Alex Brown, author of A Postcard from Italy.
