The Library of Lost and Found
Martha Storm, self-proclaimed “guardian of books” (library volunteer) and caregiver (doormat) to anyone who crosses her path and needs anything from laundry service to goldfish-sitting, finds herself suddenly middle-aged and alone. She has given up her one shot at true love to move into her childhood home and care for her aging parents until their deaths and expects nothing more out of life than the continual monotony she has come to settle for. All of that changes in one night with the arrival of a book bearing an impossible inscription that will challenge everything she knows about herself and her family. Martha must decide whether she can build a new life out of the pieces of her past she chooses to salvage while abandoning those that hold her back.
Phaedra Patrick’s characters in The Library of Lost and Found are lovingly crafted. Nothing would make me happier than sitting with Zelda and Martha having a cup of tea in a little café, discussing books and poetry and life. There could be no better recommendation than to say that I would happily pass this on to friends who needed a quiet pause and a story that truly made them feel that, regardless of bumpy beginnings or muddled middles, happy endings were possible.
