Learn how to listen

1988. Frank owns a music shop. It is jam-packed with records of every speed, size and genre. Classical, jazz, punk – as long as it’s vinyl he sells it. Day after day Frank finds his customers the music they need. 

Then into his life walks Ilse Brauchmann.

Ilse asks Frank to teach her about music. His instinct is to turn and run.

What bloggers and reviewers are saying.....

The Music Shop is about connecting with others, about how we’re all worth a little time and effort, no matter how low we get.


Rachel Joyce’s stories are beautifully written and the characters portrayed wonderfully.


The Music Shop will make your heart sing.…whatever you do, read it.
