The Bookshop of the broken hearted by Robert Hillman

In the outback of Australia, Tom, a lonely farmer whose wife has left and taken her son with her, meets Hannah Babel, holocaust survivor who has lost her entire family, including her own young son. As Tom helps Hannah set up her bookshop the two are surprised when they find themselves falling in love. The question that Hillman explores is “What is the cost is you allow your broken heart to love again? What is the cost if you don’t?

This is a really beautiful story written with compassion and wisdom.
