The Keeper of Lost Things

The Keeper of Lost Things is a charming debut novel.  Anthony lives in a large home full of treasures and memories.  Laura enters his life as an assistant and housekeeper. They grow to care for each other, though he is old enough to be her father.  And his only love is his deceased wife, Terese.    What happens is magical and heartwarming.  With a cast of quirky characters and spanning 40 years of memories, our story develops.  Sunshine, a Down syndrome young adult,  was one of my favorite characters.  She is lovely in a simple straightforward sort of way.  Freddie is the hired gardener with a good heart and, of course, there is Laura. 

“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.”Amazon

This book is heartwarming and a pleasure to read!
