The Keeper of Lost Things by Ruth Hogan

Full of character, wit, and wisdom, The Keeper of Lost Things is a heartwarming tale that will enchant fans of The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake, Garden Spells, Mrs. Queen Takes the Train, and The Silver Linings Playbook.

Anthony Peardew has dedicated his life to being the caretaker of lost things. Four decades ago, he lost a precious memento from his beloved fiancée, Therese, on the very day she tragically passed away. Consumed by grief, Anthony found solace in rescuing abandoned items and crafting stories around them. Now, in the twilight of his existence, he fears he has not fulfilled his duty to reunite these lost treasures with their rightful owners. Before his time runs out, Anthony bestows his clandestine mission upon his unsuspecting assistant, Laura, leaving her his house, its collection of lost objects, and an ornery ghost.

Laura, recovering from a painful divorce, is, in some ways, one of Anthony’s lost things herself. However, as she settles into the mansion, her life takes an unexpected turn. She forms a friendship with Sunshine, the eccentric daughter of the neighboring family, and finds solace in Freddy, the rugged gardener. As the darkness surrounding her begins to dissipate, Laura, accompanied by her newfound companions, embarks on a quest to fulfill Anthony’s final wish: reuniting the cherished lost items with their original owners.

Many years ago, Eunice discovered a trinket on a London street and held onto it throughout her life. Now, as her own journey nears its end, she has lost something precious, forcing her to break a long-standing promise.

As the Keeper of Lost Objects, Laura holds the key to Anthony and Eunice’s redemption. Can she unravel the past and forge the connections that will bring peace to their spirits?

“The Keeper of Lost Objects” is a captivating, intelligent, and subtly poignant novel that explores the boundless realm of possibilities and the joy of unexpected discoveries. It delves into the promises we make and break, the process of losing and finding ourselves, the profound significance of objects in our lives, and the remarkable connections that bind us together.
