I like your descriptions of the old store but came up surprised when the MC thought that it would be inherited to her. That was a big jump, I believe, but I like the twist in the plot. Smart man to give her the books. Keeps everyone happy. Good story.
This is a great read. I liked how you took me on a roller coaster ride of ups and downs. I felt like I was really there.

Very good story, and the prologue to a wonderful book, I think. Well written; very evocative: full of sights and scents and emotions.

Loved that she inherited the books! Nice story telling. I agree, you could make a whole novel out of this idea.

I've always personally felt that the most crucial part of any story is the ending. Love your thinking, and loved the way you wrapped it up.
Thank you for a lovely story with a surprse ending. Parting Gifts, indeed. Keep writing.
