Publisher's Summary

A librarian’s discovery of a mysterious book sparks the journey of a lifetime in the delightful new novel from the best-selling author of The Curious Charms of Arthur Pepper.

Librarian Martha Storm has always found it easier to connect with books than people - though not for lack of trying. She keeps careful lists of how to help others in her superhero-themed notebook. And yet, sometimes it feels like she’s invisible.

All of that changes when a book of fairy tales arrives on her doorstep. Inside, Martha finds a dedication written to her by her best friend - her grandmother Zelda - who died under mysterious circumstances years earlier. When Martha discovers a clue within the book that her grandmother may still be alive, she becomes determined to discover the truth. As she delves deeper into Zelda’s past, she unwittingly reveals a family secret that will change her life forever.

Filled with Phaedra Patrick’s signature charm and vivid characters, The Library of Lost and Found is a heartwarming reminder that even the quietest life has the potential to be extraordinary.

Perfect for fans of 59 Memory Lane, The Keeper of Lost Things and Something to Live For

Strange narration

A touching story. Dreadful narration. The speech pattern is really strange as if it is being read by a robot . It sounds like your Sat nav is reading to you.

Dreadful narration but nice story

I nearly gave up on this at the start because of the awful narration which stops and starts in the wrong places. However, I persevered and enjoyed the story. On this occasion I would have preferred to have read the story though.

Predictable and not credible

The story was predictable and the characters not believeable. Martha starts as a creative independent child and young woman that suddenly becomes insecure and weak. I managed to get to the end but I didn’t particularly like it. I didn’t like the reading that much either.

Good story

struggled to get into it but glad I finished it!
I found the performance of the narrator a struggle at times due to lack of emotion.

Soporific narrator

It could be a decent story but oh my goodness, the monotone narration that never changes no matter what happens. I kept missing huge chunks as her voice had no inflection, no emotion, no interest and consequently her voice drifted past like some kind of background noise. What a shame as I like this author’s work.
