Descrizione

An endearing, fantastical, and subtly moving debut novel that takes on the possibilities and joyful discoveries that often underlie the promises that we make and break. It is a story of losing and finding ourselves, of realizing that objects hold magic and meaning in our individual and shared lives, and a quest to find the surprising connections that endlessly bind us.

“Lime green plastic flower-shaped hair bobbles—Found, on the playing field, Derrywood Park, 2nd September.
“Bone china cup and saucer—Found, on a bench in Riveria Public Gardens, 31st October.”

Anthony Peardew, the self proclaimed keeper of lost things, assigned himself the quest after carelessly losing a priceless keepsake from his beloved fiancée, Therese. The very day that he lost it, she died unexpectedly, and ever since then Anthony has continually sought consolation in rescuing lost objects and writing quaint stories about them. He finds objects that have been dropped, misplaced, or accidentally left behind, taking them into his care with the intention to eventually return them to their original owner. Now, entering the twilight years of his life, Anthony realizes that he has not fulfilled his duty of seeking out the owners of his collection; while nearing his deathbed he bequeaths his secret life’s mission to his assistant, Laura, leaving his house in her care and all the lost treasures her responsibility.
