The Book of Beginnings named Indie Book of the Month

October 2023

Congratulations to Sally Page whose latest release The Book of Beginnings has been named Indie Book of the Month for October!

Independent bookshops around the UK and Ireland will be promoting The Book of Beginnings throughout October on social media and in-store. The Booksellers Association will be supporting the promotion of the Indie Books of the Month through social media and promotional material.

The Book of Beginnings follows the story of Jo Sorsby. Jo knows she is hiding from her past when she agrees to look after her uncle’s stationery shop. Spending her days glimpsing the lives of her customers as they experiment with what’s on offer is a welcome distraction from the life she has left behind. Yet far from home, Jo feels adrift… But when she meets Ruth, a vicar running from a secret, and Malcolm, a septuagenarian struggling to write his first book, she realises that she isn’t alone. It’s the beginning of a friendship that can transform Jo’s life… if only she can let them in.

Sally Page said: “I have loved bookshops all of my life and run small businesses for much of it. So, for me, indie bookshops feel like home. There is no better feeling than to see your book in an indie bookshop where you know readers are getting great advice about what to try next.”
