finished reading

I would say this is a coming-of-age story about a late bloomer. This is a sweet book if you need a light-hearted read.  It's not one that will stay with me for long, although it wasn't a waste of time.  It's just light.  I didn't connect with the main character, Martha, because she is too passive.  Although it was sweet to see her blossom by the end of the book.  I could relate to the description of her house.

From the publisher:
Librarian Martha Storm has always found it easier to connect with books than people - though not for lack of trying. She keeps careful lists of how to help others in her superhero-themed notebook. And yet, sometimes it feels like she's invisible.

All of that changes when a book of fairy tales arrives on her doorstep. Inside, Martha finds a dedication written to her by her best friend - her grandmother Zelda - who died under mysterious circumstances years earlier. When Martha discovers a clue within the book that her grandmother may still be alive, she becomes determined to discover the truth. As she delves deeper into Zelda's past, she unwittingly reveals a family secret that will change her life forever.

Filled with Phaedra Patrick's signature charm and vivid characters, The Library of Lost and Found is a heartwarming and poignant tale of how one woman must take control of her destiny to write her own happy ending.
