The Lending Library is a heartwarming debut about a daydreamer who gives her town and herself, an amazing gift – a lending library in her sunroom while confronting an even higher stakes, life-changing, decision.

When the Chatsworth library closes indefinitely, Dodie Fairisle loses her sanctuary. How is a small-town art teacher supposed to cope without the never-ending life advice and enjoyment that books give her? Well, when she’s as resourceful and generous as Dodie, she turns her sunroom into her very own little lending library. At first just a hobby, this lit lovers’ haven opens up her world in incredible ways. She knows books are powerful and soon enough they help her forge friendships between her zany neighbours and attract an exciting new romance. But when the chance to adopt an orphaned child brings Dodie’s secret dream of motherhood within reach, everything else suddenly seems less important. Finding herself at a crossroads, Dodie must figure out what it means to live a full, happy life. If only there were a book that could tell her what to do ...

'Fogelson’s debut is a beautiful heartwarming novel that weaves together a wide range of emotions. Book lovers will revel in Dodie’s journey of loss, abandonment, motherhood, and love. Jane Green fans won’t be able to put down this page-turner.'

'Fogelson pairs a passionate bibliophile with a handsome construction worker and achieves maximum charm in her quirky and sweet debut ... This should be catnip for book clubs.'
Publishers Weekly

'…[The Lending Library] should appeal to librarians and book lovers everywhere. Read-alikes include Karen Hawkins’s The Book Charmer and Jenny Colgan’s The Bookshop on the Corner.'
Library Journal

'A charming novel about family, fate, and (of course!) books, The Lending Library is sure to appeal to anyone who’s made a hard choice in life only to think, ‘Did I get that right?’ Aliza Fogelson is a fresh new voice in fiction.'
Camille Pagán, bestselling author of I’m Fine and Neither Are You
