"The reading of all good books is like a conversation with the finest men of past centuries."
Deirdre Berry, who originally began as a self-published author is a 45+-year-old phenomenal woman, wife, and mother of a blended family who first embarked on writing at a young age. That journey became never-ending. Her love for working with young people continues to shine as she works with people of all ages to help them find, sustain and prioritize their place in this world of non-stop change. Deirdre, the dedicated wife of William Berry loves her role as a woman of God, a wife, a mother to Shane Bridges, Asya Bridges, Ren (Ervin) Berry (Step-son), Madyson Berry, Willow Berry and Prince Monroe (Step-son) and a professional. As the mother of a blended family, she prides herself on being creative, patient, resilient and unconditionally loving. She takes pride in a quote from her son, Shane Bridges..... Failures are mere stepping stones to success. And for that reason, she thrives in her desire to always grow, learn, love and find beauty in the world.

Thank you for visiting Isabella's Bookstore, I am delighted you are here!
Opening this shop is a dream coming to life. An independent, community-based online shop filled with books, beautiful products from local artisans, and conversations with authors and neighbors is a convergence of all my favorite things. When you add my eight-year old son asking if he can help show other children where all the best kids’ books are, there you have it: my version of paradise.
Now, more than ever, communities like ours need safe spaces to gather for discussion and reflection. Neighbors should feel welcome and be encouraged to ask questions, share feelings, and get to know one another. Bookshops are wonderful places where the act of pulling a book off the shelf can spark a conversation that leads to authentic and meaningful connections. Bookshops are magical spots where children discover the characters that turn them into life-long readers and learners. These experiences cannot be downloaded.
