The Second Sleep
Author: Robert Harris
1468. A young priest, Christopher Fairfax, arrives in a remote Exmoor village to conduct the funeral of his predecessor. The land around is strewn with ancient artefacts--coins, fragments of glass, human bones--which the old parson used to collect. Did his obsession with the past lead to his death?
Fairfax becomes determined to discover the truth. Over the course of the next six days, everything he believes--about himself, his faith, and the history of his world--will be tested to destruction.
Jean Devine acquired the store in June of 2017. Prior to this, she spent 35 years in management, sales, and operations. She had dreamed of owning a bookstore for more than 20 years. When you visit us, it's likely that you'll also get to know her two dogs, Simon and Grace.

Garcia Street Books is a locally owned and operated bookshop that has been serving the Santa Fe community for over 25 years. The store is nestled in Santa Fe's east side.
The building houses three long time locally owned businesses; Garcia Street Books, Downtown Subscription and Bad Moon Apothecary. The shop thrives based on the loyal patronage of the neighborhood’s full and part time residents and the flocks of visitors that frequent Santa Fe.
We strive to offer our patrons a place to physically connect – with the world, with ideas, and with the diverse, artistic and literary creativity available through the world of books.
We aim to provide an environment that fosters a sense of community, kinship and belonging – to not only support people in the exploration of diverse literary works but to create an place where the free exchange of ideas might take place. We look forward to building this with you!
