The Finding of Martha Lost is a coming of age tale about a sweet innocent and caring teenage girl who was found in the station as a baby left in the lost property office but was never claimed Martha grew up in the train station living with the woman she was brought up to call Mother and helping to run the lost property office She never dared to leave the station as Mother told her it would crumble if she did so she would not step outside the station for fear of destroying the only home and people she knewBefore reading this book I never would have thought it possible for a train station to feel so homely and magical This story is filled with friendship love family secrets hope magic and self discovery Who would have thought so much could happen in a train station I will be people watching and looking for the magic myself next time I’m waiting for a train at the station Perhaps I’ll even do a little spinI adored Martha’s love of books and her belief that a book is than just a book but has a variety of stories connected to it Her emotional connection with books really struck a chord with me as books have played a big part throughout most of my life “If a book’s been found the least I can do is read it Then it won’t feel lost any longer”Martha is the main character in this story but there is also a wonderful mix of other characters that are a part of Martha’s little world There are some lovely characters that I couldn’t help but love On the other hand Martha’s unpleasant mother reminded me a little of the scary mother in Stephen King’s CarrieI wasn’t really interested in The Beatles side of the story as I’m of a Rolling Stones kind of a girl but I do understand its importance considering the location of the train station It is for this reason that I give this book an overall 4 star rating as this aspect didn’t hold my attention or feel as magical as the other parts of the story “I believe in everything until it's disproved So I believe in fairies the myths dragons It all exists even if it's in your mind Who's to say that dreams and nightmares aren't as real as the here and now”John LennonI think this will mostly appeal to fans of magical realism and young adult fictionI would like to thank the publisher Random House UK Transworld Publishers Doubleday for allowing me a copy of this book via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review

FulIn the meantime there are mysteries to solve secret tunnels under the station a suitcase that may have belonged to the Beatles the roman soldier who appears at the same time every day with his packed lunch Not to mention the stuffed monkey that. 5 Words Lost family love truth lossThis book was full of wonder and whimsy and I found it only too easy to suspend disbelief and plunge head first into Martha'a magical worldMartha is a bit of a weird one but from her story it's easy to see why She has a bit of an old soul a way of looking at the world that goes past the surface At times she seems so worldly Then something happens and you remember that she isn't she's just this scared little girl who has never even left Lime Street Station never felt the sun direct on her skinI did like that I was never uite sure of Martha I was never sure what was in her head and what was real what she saw in her visions or with her eyes When she first described George Harris I wasn't sure what she truly meant and it was only when properly introduced that I started to trust Martha As insular as Martha's world is the author has put so much into the setting Sights and smells and colours and people The descriptions were sometimes so vivid that I even felt a bit sick at times sorry William I loved the music and dance and the passion of the characters Except Mal No one likes MalThere are lots of small mysteries but there is also huge a thread of mystery throughout the story and I have to admit that I hadn't worked it out until just a few paragraphs before the reveal It was a great feeling coming to the same conclusion at the same time as the characterBut what about that suitcase in the basementThis was a wonderful wistful whimsical read an enchanting story
