‘Other people’s expectations can make you do all sorts of things against your better judgment.’
Sometimes you just settle down deep into a book and forget the present time. This happened to me here. Sarah Loudin Thomas has such a wonderful way with the written word and her stories are so rich and full. Set in 1932 for the most part, The Finder of Forgotten Things brings three unlikely people together on a journey that none will ever forget.
Sully, Jeremiah and Gainey are three people who seem as if they would never form a relationship with each other. And yet they do and all three are made better by knowing the others.
Thomas brings in actual history here, the Hawks Nest Tunnel and the horrific dangers it caused. I was not familiar with this event in history and her research compelled me to learn more. Thomas manages to craft the best characters and not just the main protagonists, either. All her characters are wonderful, even the secondary ones and make reading about them a great pleasure.
Things forgotten are sometimes found and are treasured all the more greatly for having been found after a long while. I love this writer’s work for she makes you richer for having read her books. Highly recommended.
My thanks to Bethany House Publishers for a copy of this book via the Net Galley platform. The opinion in this review is entirely my own.
