Once a celebrated author of short stories now in his twilight years, Anthony Peardew has spent half his life collecting lost objects, trying to atone for a promise broken many years before.
Realising he is running out of time, he leaves his house and all its lost treasures to his assistant Laura, the one person he can trust to fulfil his legacy and reunite the thousands of objects with their rightful owners.
But the final wishes of the 'Keeper of Lost Things' have unforeseen repercussions which trigger a most serendipitous series of encounters...

In 2012 she was diagnosed with cancer: as chemo kept her up all night she passed the time writing, and the eventual result was her debut The Keeper of Lost Things. The Particular Wisdom of Sally Red Shoes, Ruth's second novel, will be published next year.She lives in a chaotic Victorian house with an assortment of rescue dogs and her long-suffering husband.ruthhogan.co.uktwitter | instagram | facebook > ruthmariehogan
