Chosen by our indies: The Love Song of Miss Queenie Hennessy

The Love Song of Queenie Hennessy by Rachel Joyce

“I couldn’t put this down – it gripped my attention immediately and although the author describes it as a ‘companion’ to her earlier Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry, there is no need to have read that excellent title first. As Queenie is writing from a hospice, tracing her long relationship with Harold and his son, there are no surprises as to the outcome but my goodness what an ending – I was astounded and in tears – I urge you to read it!”

Why shop at is where the two worlds of online purchasing and high street shopping collide. You love the ease and luxury of shopping online, but you don't want to see the bricks and mortar shops on the high street disappear. With hive, every time you make a purchase you’re supporting your local independent shop as well, just by continuing to do what you love - buying your books, eBooks, music and movies online.

Whenever you buy something at hive, big or small, we’ll share a percentage of the sale with your nominated favourite or local bookshop.  So whilst you’re buying from us, your local bookshop will benefit from your online shopping too. Happy days!
