9780007575336: The Book of Lost and Found

A sweeping multigenerational story of nostalgia, love, and family secrets

Young photographer Kate Darling is reeling from the recent death of her mother, an orphan who became a celebrated ballerina. Grieving and lonely, Kate’s only close companion is her ailing adoptive grandmother, Evie. When Evie reveals a terrible secret, Kate is compelled to rediscover a family history she had thought was lost forever.

The story Kate finds is one tightly interwoven with twentieth-century history -- from the heady days of the Roaring Twenties, through the economic crash and political tension of the ’30s, to the grim reality of the Second World War. But it is also the story of a couple deeply in love, separated by the rigid expectations of family and by the events that supersede them.

Moving between London, New York, Paris, Venice and Corsica, The Book of Lost and Found is a sweeping story of love across borders and generations, and of cherished dreams and lost possibilities.

About the Author:

LUCY FOLEY is a former editor at Hodder Fiction and has been both a literary agent and a bookseller. An avid painter, she now writes full time and lives in London, England.

Review:

"Lucy Foley masterfully evokes period and setting in THE BOOK OF LOST AND FOUND. Readers may count on losing hours of sleep to remain immersed in lush Corsica, luminous Paris, and lively New York, with an unforgettable group of characters, and a mystery that spans decades. Sublime!"

Erika Robuck, bestselling author of Hemingway's Girl and Call Me Zelda

"The Book of Lost and Found is an irresistibly entertaining and evocative novel, a tender, heart wrenching tale of love lost and found immersed in a suspenseful historical mystery. Lucy Foley's impressive debut thoroughly satisfies, and I can't wait to read whatever she writes next."―Jennifer Chiaverini, author of Mrs. Grant and Madame Jule and Mrs. Lincoln's Dressmaker

"The Book of Lost and Found is a sheer joy to read. Everything I love is in there--romance, the linking of past and present, travel to wonderful (and wonderfully described) destinations, characters I wish I could meet, and an evocative mystery--all spun together with Foley's engaging and elegant prose."―Mary Simses, author of The Irresistible Blueberry Bakeshop and Café

"A long-hidden drawing by a reclusive artist. A famous ballerina. Childhood friendships. Secret loves. The Book of Lost and Found charmingly sweeps through the 20th century, taking us to England, Paris and Corsica, and from a place of loneliness and loss to one of belonging and love."―Meg Waite Clayton, New York Times bestselling author of The Wednesday Sisters and The Race for Paris

"Blending themes of The Goldfinch and Possession, The Book of Lost and Found spans half a century, two love stories, and the globe--taking us from modern-day London, to a timeless Corsica, to an occupied Paris, and the New York art scene. For all that, Lucy Foley's sweeping debut shimmers as intimately as the mysterious artist sketch at the novel's center; the book is remarkably tender, tragic and true."―Miranda Beverly-Whittemore, New York Times bestselling author of Bittersweet

"Lush descriptions of time and place enhance a compelling love story."―Kirkus Reviews
