Giveaway: Lost & Found by Tom Winter

Lost & Found by Tom Winter

Earlier this year, I read and reviewed this book and gave it 5 stars. It was a feel-good book but with some heavy themes.

It’s about two people who don’t know each other at all: Carol, who is bored with her life, and sends letters to “the universe” to write about her situation. Albert is an elderly postman, who deals with the undeliverable letters, amongst which Carol’s. He starts reading them and looks forward to each next letter.

My review is HERE.

Publisher description: “It’s hard for Carol to admit her failings. Unhappy in her marriage and with a teenage daughter who will barely converse with her, she feels trapped. So she puts pen to paper; well, it seems less daunting than airing her thoughts aloud. She isn’t expecting anyone to read her letters, so she doesn’t address them. Instead, she marks them with a smiley face and pops them in the post box.

Albert’s retirement day at Royal Mail looms and he’s given one final task; organise the ‘lost letters’ that have been piling up in a room behind the sorting machine. Amongst the letters addressed to Santa, he arrives at one with a smiley face drawn in place of an address. Albert opens the letter, unaware that in doing so his world would never be the same again.”
