This is the first book I read in 2017 - and if another as good comes along in the next 12 months, I'll eat my special gold reviewing spectacles... Wonderful stuff and the perfect cure for the New Year blues (Daily Mail)
Psychological realism, whimsy and magic are a winning combination in this quirky, exquisitely crafted novel... It's a charming read, perfect for the holidays: you will want to share it when you get home (The Lady)
A really beautiful, tender book. Heartbreaking in parts, but lovely. I got sucked in and read the whole thing in one afternoon, unable to tear myself away. I sobbed for a good hour afterwards! (The Londoner)
When this book first appeared I said it was the perfect cure for the New Year blues. But it could apply just as well to any summer blues... This touching, funny and romantic debut is that rare and precious thing - a real story with brilliant characters (Daily Mail - Best Summer Books 2017)
The back stories, real or imagined, of lost-and- found objects form the centrepiece of this exquisite, absorbing novel, a potent cocktail of insightful psychological realism, whimsy and glittering magic, where hopes and new beginnings glint off the sharp edges of grief and loss. It grabs you right from its intriguing opening scene... Hogan's prose is considered, expressive and vivid, but never overwritten. Her characters reveal themselves gradually, much as the found objects acquire layers of meaning as we become acquainted with their provenance and history. A charming read that seems bound to become a book club favourite. (The Lady)
A debut to watch for... I was hugely impressed by this flawlessly written, most humane novel. (Ronald Frame, Sunday Herald (Books of the Year))
A charming story of fresh starts and self-discovery that warms the cockles (Woman & Home)
A warm and heartfelt debut. (Prima)
A charming whimsical novel about holding on to what is precious (Red)
This mystical and spiritual tale is a joyous read that will broaden your imagination and warm your heart (OK!)
The phenomenal bestselling debut and word-of-mouth hit from one of the Queens of Up-Lit. A novel of lost objects and second chances, as joyous as Singing in the Rain or La La Land.See all Product description

There are some books where you read the story synopsis and you think Wow - but they just dont make the grade.
This is the other type - where it sounds like a strange sort of book but it grips you all the way ....
Well worth the award
almost slapstick scenes help to balance the sentimentality. In summary, I loved it. The best £2 I’ve ever spent on Amazon!
