It would be easy to pick this book apart, and some have. I decided to just give in and accept the unlikely set-up, and found the book quite charming!

An easy read without much excitement or real stakes. The stories behind each of the lost items are overdone. Thanks to the character, Sunshine, the book has some memorable passages. Otherwise, pretty forgettable.

A really enjoyable book.

The best thing about owning a Kindle is discovering 'Kindle Daily Deals' and 'Kindle Monthly Deals'. For 99 pence including delivery you really can't go wrong trying out book simply judged by their titles and covers. This one was a certainly a diamond in the rough.

Ruth's treatment of Down's Syndrome was a breath of fresh air in a world so full of ignorance and stigma, and her treatment of Alzheimer's disease equally so. Ruth really isn't afraid to delve into lives that few writers would fear to tread and does so with care and understanding.

Definitely a book for anyone wanting to read a lovely, well thought out, enjoyable story with great characters (Ruth even manages to include a likeable ghost) you can't help but enjoy.

Having totally enjoyed 'The Keeper of Lost Things', i just had to give this a read.

Mostly a book that deals with death, and how different people deal with death in its many guises.   I know, it sounds a bit morbid and miserable, but Ruth manages to pull this off without it being so.

As with 'The Keeper of Lost Things', Ruth creates a wonderful cast of characters that we can believe in and feel for.   People who have been hit by tradgedy and grief and have to learn to live on with it.   And Ruth does this with a wonderful compassion mixed in with just the perfect touch of humour to keep the story flowing along nicely while set mostly between a Victorian grave yard and a lido.

10/10 for taking a topic that most writers would shy away from and making it into a really enjoyable, thoughtful read, with quite a few titbits of genuine wisdom thrown in.

I really enjoy Ruth's writing, and you'll definitely find me reading Ruth's next book, 'Queenie Malone's Paradise Hotel', at some future date.
