Description

Perhaps, when all is said and done, it is not only for the things we do well, but it is also with our imperfections for which we are loved. We move into Anthony's house, where lost things are kept, with Laura, who is to fall in love with Freddy the gardener. From about the 10% mark, I knew that this book was probably going to be a one star, and I couldn't wait for it to be over. I adore all the characters in this book they are all so unique and different making them very intriguing to the reader.

I loved the characters in this, even the snooty Portia, and especially Sunshine, and Anthony’s story, wonderful, but heartbreaking.She was once lost, herself, but Anthony helped her to reunite with her true self, and not the one others had tried to form her to be. As Anthony approaches the end of his life and realizes that he is running out of time, he turns over the care of his home and collected treasures to his assistant Laura.

Over the years he has filled his drawers and shelves with fragments of other people’s lives, and somehow they had helped to mend his-so cruelly shattered-and make it whole again. It is “holiday read” material rather than a deep and meaningful work of literature, but I don’t have a problem with that. I found it to have a slow story line and then within 3 chapters of the end the 2 storylines merged together quite quickly. The unique theme focuses on a very intriguing obsession of hoarding lost objects - not in a manner similar to Museum of Innocence, which was for personal indulgence, but in the hope that the items could be reunited with their owners.There’s even a familiar supernatural presence that has unfinished business - not in a horror context but to finally complete a particular task. When Anthony dies he leaves both his estate and the responsibility for completing his life’s work to Laura, his housekeeper/secretary. One man asks the other man whether he likes being a taxi driver, and the other man says yes but then elaborates with an incident in his early career in which he ran down a man?
