The Library of Lost and Found

The Library of Lost and Found by Phaedra Patrick was a delightful, quick, and enjoyable read reminiscent of A Man Called Ove and The Curious Charms of Arthur Pepper (also by Patrick). In The Library of Lost and Found, Martha struggles with not always saying yes. Volunteering to help people all the time has meant lost love, overwhelming anxiety, and crippling stuff-collection. It takes a mysterious book showing up on her doorstep (well, really the stoop of the library where she volunteers) to shake her life up and, ultimately, bring her happiness. This is a sappier read, but I was about due for a simpler story. I’d recommend it as a good palate-cleanser or beach selection.
