The Richard & Judy Autumn Book Club has been announced and we’re pleased to see two our large print titles have made the list: Ruth Hogan’s The Keeper Of Lost Things and Ali Land’s Good Me Bad Me.
As both authors are debut novelists we’re all very excited for what they do next.
The Keeper Of Lost Things by Ruth Hogan
Anthony Peardew is the Keeper of Lost Things. Forty years ago he carelessly lost a keepsake from his beloved Therese. That very same day, she died unexpectedly. Broken-hearted, Anthony sought consolation in rescuing lost objects - the things others have dropped, misplaced, or accidentally left behind - and writing stories about them. Now, in the twilight of his life, he 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 housekeeper Laura, the one person he can trust to fulfil his legacy. But the final wishes of the Keeper of Lost Things have unforeseen repercussions that trigger a most serendipitous series of encounters...
