The Manual - Epictetus - A Short Summary and Review

The Keeper of Lost Things - Ruth Hogan - A Short Summary & Review

 A short summary of the book The Keeper of Lost Things:

Finding the stories behind the items strangers have lost.

My favorite Ruth Hogan quote from the book:

"If you never get sadness, how do you know what happy is like?"

Questions to ponder while reading the book:

Have you ever lost something important?

Have you ever found something that you were sure was important to someone else?

My review of the book The Keeper of Lost Things:

I was leery about the plot when I started and pleasantly surprised by how much I liked it.

The stories truly touched my heart.

I hope I don't end up in a biscuit tin.
