Amazon Review:

 

An antique shop haunted by a ghost.
A silver treasure with an injustice in its story.
An adventure to the past she’ll never forget.
Xanthe and her mother Flora leave London behind for a fresh start, taking over an antique shop in the historic town of Marlborough. Xanthe has always had an affinity with some of the antiques she finds. When she touches them, she can sense something of the past they come from and the stories they hold. When she has an intense connection to a beautiful silver chatelaine, she has to know more.
It is while she’s examining the chatelaine that she’s transported back to the seventeenth century, where she discovers an injustice in its history. The spirit that inhabits her new home confronts her and charges her with saving her daughter’s life, threatening to take Flora’s if she fails.
While Xanthe fights to save the girl in 1605, she meets architect Samuel Appleby. He may be the person who can help her succeed. He may also be the reason she can’t bring herself to leave.
With its rich historical detail, strong mother-daughter relationship, and picturesque English village, The Little Shop of Found Things delivers a heartfelt page-turner.

 

Don't faint! I finally finished a book.  My worst year ever for reading.  And I have a lot of excuses, most are which deal with my health and my eyes.  This has not been a fun year for me, but I hope things will begin to improve soon.

I did enjoy this book even if it did take me over 2 month to read it!

It's a bit of time travel in it, taking you back in time.  The author did a fine job of describing the past as she did in the "now" time.

I generally read detective books and this was a change of pace, but still, if I wasn't always in so much pain I think I would have enjoyed it even more, and of course, finished it quite a bit faster!

You might want to give this one a go for something different!

I really hope 2022 is a better year for you, Sis. You've been through too much. Half my family's got Covid so we're having a fun time at the moment. Helping them out with shopping but can't go too close as I can't risk Peter getting Covid, he'd end up in hospital for sure.

Love the sound of this book.

Luv you!
