Meet the Keeper of Lost Things.... 

Once a celebrated author of short stories now in his twilight years, Anthony Peardew has spent half his life collecting lost objects, trying to atone for a promise broken many years before.

Realising he is running out of time, he leaves his house and all its lost treasures to his assistant Laura, the one person he can trust to fulfil his legacy and reunite the thousands of objects with their rightful owners.

But the final wishes of the Keeper of Lost Things have unforeseen repercussions which trigger a most serendipitous series of encounters....

And if you loved The Keeper of Lost Things, don't miss Ruth Hogan's second novel The Wisdom of Sally Red Shoes, which is out now.

Sweet but not sickly

This story is a sweet romantic story that delights you at every turn. It is not overly romantic, in fact it is rather realistic. The love story between Laura and Freddie is a realistic and integral part of the narrative. The addition of Sunshine into the mix is an excellent foil to things becoming too 'heavy'. She adds some wonderful moments of humour and honesty. The dual narrative allows for a second love story between Eunice and Bomber which ties beautifully to the main narrative. All in all a great feel good read. If you like Jojo Moyes you will enjoy this.
