Lost & Found: A Novel by Brooke Davis *Review*

*I was given a paperback copy of this book for my honest review*



Millie Bird, seven years old and ever hopeful, always wears red gumboots to match her curly hair. Her struggling mother, grieving the death of Millie’s father, leaves her in the big ladies’ underwear department of a local store and never returns.

Agatha Pantha, eighty-two, hasn't left her house—or spoken to another human being—since she was widowed seven years ago. She fills the silences by yelling at passersby, watching loud static on the TV, and maintaining a strict daily schedule.

Karl the Touch Typist, eighty-seven, once used his fingers to type out love notes on his wife’s skin. Now that she’s gone, he types his words out into the air as he speaks. Karl’s been committed to a nursing home, but in a moment of clarity and joy, he escapes. Now he’s on the lam.

Brought together in strange circumstances, the three will embark upon a road trip across Western Australia to find Millie’s mum. Along the way, Karl wants to find out how to be a man again, and Agatha just wants everything to go back to how it was. Together, they will discover that old age is not the same as death, that the young can be wise, and that letting yourself feel sad once in a while just might be the key to a happy life.
 

MY THOUGHTS


I have seen this book in other blogs and vlogs and I just keep hearing good things about this book.

It is quirky,entertaining, quick and easy book that is different from what I would usually read.

I liked this book and I read this one in an afternoon . I found that the ending took me by surprise because it just kind of happened with no warning and no real conclusion to events.

I give this 3 out of 5

If  you want to purchase this book it is now available in stores and online at Chapters Indigo, amazon.com, amazon.ca, Barnes and Noble, The Book Depository.
