Island author’s latest is heartfelt family saga

Bestselling Bainbridge author Susan Wiggs’ latest novel, “The Lost and Found Bookshop” will go on sale Tuesday, July 7.

In it, a young woman reeling in the wake of a shocking tragedy must decide what to do with her mother’s charming but financially strapped bookshop in San Francisco, and how to care for her grandfather who is determined to keep it.

“Susan is using her tried-and-true gift for writing intellectually engaging and emotionally rich stories to explore themes that are front and center for so many of us—grief recovery, elder care, and single parenthood,” said Bianca Flores of William Morrow & Dey Street/HarperCollins Publishers.

“This novel serves as a testament to our current cultural conversation on the pressures women face while juggling work, relationships, and caring for family members, particularly elders with dementia. Plus, this takes place in an indie S.F. bookstore — making it catnip for book lovers!”

Wiggs’ work has been praised by People Magazine, Kirkus Reviews, Publishers Weekly, Booklist and the Seattle Times, among others.

Her previous novel, “The Oysterville Sewing Circle,” imbued life and heart into the #MeToo movement. A New York Times bestselling author, she is seen as the next Anna Quindlen, Lisa Wingate, or Jodi Picoult.

The book is available now for preorder via www.eagleharborbooks.com.
