The Keeper of Lost Things

51yrISMdkJLNormally a book like The Keeper of Lost Things by Ruth Hogan would not be up my alley. While you wouldn’t know it at first, the supernatural came into play toward the end and that’s not for me. However, the story was so sweet, that I am willing to suspend my disbelief and give this choice a thumbs up. It felt very much like A Man Called Ove and The Readers of Broken Wheel Recommend. Anthony Peardew finds and keeps lost things and writes stories about each one. He does this because many years ago he lost his fiancé, Therese. Laura becomes Anthony’s assistant. Recovering from a divorce, she needs a distraction and finds one in taking care of Anthony. At the same time, we learn about Eunice who is also finding herself and newly employed. Their stories intertwine in predictable but enjoyable ways. I’d add this one to your summer reading list.
