"A town that lacks a bookshop isn't always a town that wants one"

The film, like the novel, is set mainly in 1959, and centres around Florence Green, a middle-aged widow, who decides to open a bookshop in the small fictional coastal town of Hardborough, Suffolk. The location chosen is the Old House, an abandoned, damp house said to be infested by ghosts. After many sacrifices, Florence manages to start her business, which grows for about a year after which sales slump. Mr. Brundish, the lonely and mysterious inhabitant of the house at the top of the hill, is Florence's best client. The influential and ambitious Mrs. Gamart intends to set up an arts centre in the Old House. Mrs. Gamart's nephew, a member of Parliament, sponsors a bill that empowers local councils to buy any historical building that has been left uninhabited for five years. The bill is passed, the Old House is compulsorily purchased, and Florence is evicted.
