You know that feeling you get when a story has become so ingrained in your mind that it refuses to leave, even after the last pages have long since been surrendered?. I love those kind of stories, especially ones which wash gently upon you with their quiet beauty. These stories are inescapable, taking residence in your mind as their ideas continue to grow and bring you comfort. Something within their essence refuses to be forgotten. Without a doubt, The Keeper of Lost Things by Ruth Hogan is one such story.
At first glance the novel is strikingly beautiful. Designed by Diana Beltran Herrera, the brilliant blue and cheerful pink colours produce a vibrant, rather sweet cover. I think I can be excused for thinking the novel may be a bit fluffy at first glance, yet having now read the book, I have fallen even more in love with the intricate cover design.
