The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry takes us on a journey of healing that begins when a bad-humored, widowed independent bookseller finds himself in possession of an abandoned baby. The baby inexplicable connects with him and A.J. finds that he is unwilling to give her up. He begins the process of adoption and creating a meaningful life for the two of them. This is an endearing story that is very well written and enjoyable for bibliophiles. The audio version of the book had a fitting narrator who was good to listen to.
