“It was an absolute privilege to have THE KEEPER OF LOST THINGS chosen as one of Richard and Judy’s Book Club picks, and amazing for it to be featured alongside such talented authors and their wonderful novels. Since KEEPER was published in January this year there have been many highs, but to be named as the readers’ favourite from the Autumn picks is truly special and I’d like to thank everyone who took the time to vote.” – Ruth Hogan
Ruth Hogan’s enchanting debut, The Keeper of Lost Things is a quietly moving story about fresh-starts and self discovery. When Anthony Peardew, a once celebrated author now in his twilight years, realises he is running out of time, he leaves his house and the lost treasures he has spent half is life lovingly collecting to his assistant Laura. As Laura undertakes the important task of fulfilling Andrew’s legacy of reuniting the thousands of objects to their rightful owners, she finds a new sense of purpose and learns to trust again having suffered some major setbacks in life. A witty, heart-warming story with an unforgettable cast of characters, it’s no wonder our readers fell in love with The Keeper of Lost Things.
