Toby Ruben and Deborah Laidlaw are friends who share many things: new motherhood, ideas, and a book, The Trolley Girl. A memoir about a trolley strike in a Massachusetts town in 1921, this book serves as the heart of this engrossing novel. When Deborah dies suddenly, Toby is grief-stricken for her friend and reaches once again for the book, which she never returned to Deborah, and which, almost magically, becomes a source of solace and consolation. An evocative novel of extraordinary power, The Book Borrower will delight readers in its truth and honesty about both the joys and complexities of friendship and the power of books to save and help guide us.
