Lost and Found by Tom Winter
This is the ARC that I was sent from the lovely people over at Lovereading.co.uk...
Expected publication date :February 21st
I loved this book! This is the story about two people who's lives are not going as they had planned. Albert is a widower nearing retirement age,he works for the post office and comes home in the evening to his cat ,Carol is fed up of her husband and she does not like her daughter much either but as soon as she gets up the guts to leave her husband he stuns her with news that makes it impossible for her to leave him. Albert and Carol become linked in a way neither of them could have expected when Carol in desperation sends a letter out into the universe and Albert finds it and through this link they are each given some comfort at times in their lives when they need it most. This was a very funny and emotional read ,Carol is very witty and I was often chuckling away to myself reading the thoughts she had to herself,some of which were utterly outrageous but giggle inducing. Arthur is a sweet man who lost his one true love and spent his whole life mourning for her. These two characters made this a truly wonderful book,each page was a joy to read and I can't wait to read it again.
