"The Keeper of Lost Things" by Ruth Hogan

As a way to reconcile a past loss, a gentleman begins to collect items that people drop or lose without realizing it.  He catalogs these items with the hope of someday locating and returning the items to the correct owners.  After the gentleman passes, this task falls to his assistant to whom he has left his entire fortune, along with all of the lost objects.  This story holds a wonderful mixture of happiness, sadness, a little magic, creating new connections, and helping a restless spirit find peace.  This wonderful debut by Ruth Hogan ended way too soon for this reader!!
