A charming, clever, and quietly moving debut novel of of endless possibilities and joyful discoveries that explores the promises we make and break, losing and finding ourselves, the objects that hold magic and meaning for our lives, and the surprising connections that bind us.

Lime green plastic flower-shaped hair bobbles??Found, on the playing field, Derrywood Park, 2nd September.

Bone china cup and saucer??Found, on a bench in Riveria Public Gardens, 31st October.

Anthony Peardew is the keeper of lost things. Forty years ago, he carelessly lost a keepsake from his beloved fiancée, Therese. That very same day, she died unexpectedly. Brokenhearted, Anthony sought consolation in rescuing lost objects??the things others have dropped, misplaced, or accidently left behind??and writing stories about them. Now, in the twilight of his life, Anthony worries that he has not fully discharged his duty to reconcile all the lost things with their owners. As the end nears, he bequeaths his secret life's mission to his unsuspecting assistant, Laura, leaving her his house and and all its lost treasures, including an irritable ghost.

Recovering from a bad divorce, Laura, in some ways, is one of Anthony's lost things. But when the lonely woman moves into his mansion, her life begins to change. She finds a new friend in the neighbor's quirky daughter, Sunshine, and a welcome distraction in Freddy, the rugged gardener. As the dark cloud engulfing her lifts, Laura, accompanied by her new companions, sets out to realize Anthony's last wish: reuniting his cherished lost objects with their owners.

Long ago, Eunice found a trinket on the London pavement and kept it through the years. Now, with her own end drawing near, she has lost something precious??a tragic twist of fate that forces her to break a promise she once made.

As the Keeper of Lost Objects, Laura holds the key to Anthony and Eunice's redemption. But can she unlock the past and make the connections that will lay their spirits to rest?

Full of character, wit, and wisdom, The Keeper of Lost Things is heartwarming tale that will enchant fans of The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake, Garden Spells, Mrs Queen Takes the Train, and The Silver Linin… (mais)

Oh, boy. This was lovely. There were parts that I worried might turn too dark, but trust me -- they are not. Just enough shadow to give definition and plausibility to this very magical story. If you are a fan of Sarah Addison Allen or Ellen Herrick, you'll almost certainly like this. Especially if you are an Anglophile, like I am. ( )

It would be easy to pick this book apart, and some have. I decided to just give in and accept the unlikely set-up, and found the book quite charming! ( )

An easy read without much excitement or real stakes. The stories behind each of the lost items are overdone. Thanks to the character, Sunshine, the book has some memorable passages. Otherwise, pretty forgettable. ( )

A really enjoyable book.

The best thing about owning a Kindle is discovering 'Kindle Daily Deals' and 'Kindle Monthly Deals'. For 99 pence including delivery you really can't go wrong trying out book simply judged by their titles and covers. This one was a certainly a diamond in the rough.

Ruth's treatment of Down's Syndrome was a breath of fresh air in a world so full of ignorance and stigma, and her treatment of Alzheimer's disease equally so. Ruth really isn't afraid to delve into lives that few writers would fear to tread and does so with care and understanding.

Definitely a book for anyone wanting to read a lovely, well thought out, enjoyable story with great characters (Ruth even manages to include a likeable ghost) you can't help but enjoy. ( )

Possibly one if the most beautiful stories I gave read for a long time. Poignant, heart rending, uplifting, hopeful and a hymn to humanity. One of the books which as soon as you finish it you wish you could go back and read it for the first time again. ( )
