We’ve chosen The Keeper of Lost Things by Ruth Hogan, because it has rave reviews and looks intriguing:

‘Psychological realism, whimsy and magic are a winning combination in this quirky, exquisitely crafted novel… It’s a charming read, perfect for the holidays: you will want to share it when you get home’ (The Lady)

‘A really beautiful, tender book. Heartbreaking in parts, but lovely. I got sucked in and read the whole thing in one afternoon, unable to tear myself away. I sobbed for a good hour afterwards!’ (The Londoner)

‘A charming whimsical novel about holding on to what is precious’ (Red)

‘This mystical and spiritual tale is a joyous read that will broaden your imagination and warm your heart’ (OK!)

Let’s see what we think!
