Book Review: The Library of Lost and Found by Phaedra Patrick

This was a sweet story, and if it was a little predictable, it was no less enjoyable for that. There were times when I wanted to grab poor Martha and shake her very hard, to get her out of her wallowing woe-is-me mentality – and then times when I couldn’t believe how kind and sweet she was, despite everything. There were times when Zelda’s antics made me laugh right out loud – and others where she seemed selfish and self righteous and I wanted to give HER a good shake. And there were lots of poignant and touching and difficult and exasperating moments in between, which I occasionally found exhausting to read, but which wrapped up nicely in the end as I knew they would.

It was a sweet story overall and a relatively quick read, and my only regret is that we didn’t get enough Siegfried OR Owen OR Gina to make any of them into the fully developed characters they could have been with a little more time and attention. They mostly served as plot advancers, which is a shame because they were some of the loveliest characters in the book despite their only appearing on the sidelines…
