'The first book I read in 2017 - and if another as good comes along in the next 12 months, I'll eat my special gold reviewing spectacles' DAILY MAIL

Meet the 'Keeper of Lost Things'...
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...

Coming in May 2018: Ruth Hogan's second novel A Beginner's Guide to Drowning


  • Couldn’t put it down

    By Goasvennic
    Loved the way the author introduced the characters separately then brought them altogether at the end. Really enjoyed this book.

    I don't often write reviews but felt I should as this is the best book I've read in a long time. What a debut! Keep them coming.
  • Loved it!

    What a beautiful book!! I loved every moment spent reading it. Two fascinating lives interspersed with short stories and all elegantly told.
  • Unique

    This lovely book is brilliantly written. I plough through books and forget them easily but I won't this one.

    A lovely book with an uplifting storyline. Kept me turning the pages and sadly I got to the end too soon and would have loved the story to have gone on and on. Literary bliss

    An utter delight from start to finish.

    It will be impossible to find new words to praise this oh-so-special and delight-full book because every possible compliment will already have been written. What I can say, though, is that had I not read a review for this book I would not have spent real pennies on buying it! So, if anyone ever suggests that reviews are not worth the paper/screen they are written on is hereby proved wrong.

    A charming and compelling read. Almost comparable to a Russian doll with smaller stories intricately woven inside of each other. Brilliant !!
