review The Finding of Martha Lost ´ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF Caroline Wallace Á 8 review Martha is lostShe’s been lost since she was a baby abandoned in a suitcase on the train from Paris Ever since she’s waited in station lost property for someone to claim her It’s been sixteen years but she’s still hopefulIn the. I have to admit that the cover is one of the reasons that I was drawn to the book and of course the description of the book about a young girl that grows up in a train station after being abandoned in a suitcase 16 year old Martha has been raised by an over religious mother and she is told she can t leave the train station because it would collapse if she did that But when her mother dies everything changes and she needs to find her birth mother to be able to run the lost property place in the train station Then there is the lost suitcase that is said to belong to Mel Evans roadie to the Beatles The Finding of Martha Lost is an interesting and special book about a young girl coming of age Martha has grown up in a train station this is her world and she has never put her foot outside However everything is changing for her I loved the whole train station world with its odd characters from the old man with the bowler hat living below in the sewers to the young man in a roman costume And Martha is a special girl she can see everything she touches history from keys to hockey sticksThe Beatles part of the story was something that I did not completely fall for I was way interested in the train world than what happened with the suitcase and it didn t help that Max Cole the man that found the suitcase is an unpleasant person that Martha seems to fall for He s POV in this book didn t feel interesting I didn t mind the story about Mel Evens but I could not really find myself that interested in the storyline with Max and the second half of the story when Max shows up at the train station just felt a little bit less interesting because if that Still it a charming book I just wish I had been a bit taken with the story and perhaps that it would have been a bit magical realism in the story than Martha ability to touch and know things about objects past I want to thank the publisher for providing me with a free copy for an honest review

review The Finding of Martha Lost ´ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF Caroline Wallace Á 8 review 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. We need to talk about how I found myself feeling about The Finding of Martha LostCause I for sure am not lost about how I feel about this bookYou could say I am finding myself with uite a strong opinion Enough of the puns Let s talk straight hereThis book had me hyped up about it ever since I got approved for it on NetGalley It offered a wonderful premise Martha was found in an abandoned suitcase in a train station grew up there and needs to find out who she is as time is pressing Secrets trains and unicorns Okay maybe not the unicorns so much This book had so much potential Books secret underground libraries lost and found items trains And when I say secret underground libraries I mean rainbow sorted libraries of lost books with dedications spiral staircases and forgotten histories in a train station God And yet I just didn t like it And it makes me sad I didn t like it I super duper guilt tripped myself for not liking it SO MANY TIMES I mean Being a book worm HOW can you not like the thought of secret libraries TRAINS I do feel like a failed bookworm nowHowever I have to say Martha the main character was just too daft Too crazy Too silly There is a big difference between being cute and naive and just being unrealistic And it s not just the main character The choices everyone makes in this book I struggle to find words for it Let me present you with some examples Throughout the book the main problem Martha has is that if she doesn t procure certain documents concerning herself she will be evictedSo the normal course of action here would be probably to go to a certain government office and apply for themNow I do understand that Martha is 16 a little bit naive and constantly abused by her insane fanatically religious mother butWriting posters and leaving them on the walls of the train station for a mysterious stranger to find does not seem like a solution You do not hope strangers who send you books will come up with your National Insurance number You also do not just do nothing for 30 days or so and hope it will somehow resolve More than that If it was just Martha But it really wasn t Gonna just spoiler tag this view spoiler All the others just stare at her when she makes the worst decisions ever Sort of even when thugs show up in her office with weapons Or even when she nearly gets in trouble with a total douche who s 20 years older hide spoiler

review The Finding of Martha Lost ´ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF Caroline Wallace Á 8 review That someone keeps misplacingBut there is one mystery Martha cannot solve And now the authorities have found out about the girl in lost property Time is running out if Martha can’t discover who she really is she will lose everything. A little over a week ago I shared a review for one of my Books of the Year so far In Her Wake I spent probably time than was needed deciding what to read next after finishing it because of the effect that book had on me I picked up The Finding of Martha Lost because of an intriguing blurb and because I know Lime Street Station What I wasn t expecting was to come across a book that whilst somewhat different to In Her Wake has had a similar effect on me It is a story I ll never forget one that consumed me whilst I was reading it and one with characters who I think will still be living in my thoughts some months down the line It completely took me by surprise and already I am recommending this book to anybody who will listen I was talking about it to a girl I work with and I was practically hopping on the spot with excitement as I tried to tell her what this book was about without spoiling it too much and that s the problem I have with this review it s such a difficult book to discuss especially when there s so much I want to shout aboutMy opener when discussing this book is to say it s about a girl called Martha Lost who lives in the lost luggage at Lime Street Station Now anybody who has visited Lime Street would ask how a girl could live in such a boxlike structure But The Finding of Martha Lost is set mostly in the 1970 s and rather than the station it is today Caroline Wallace has created the most uniue imaginative and magical place to set a story and in terms of setting alone it s the best I ve read this year and I thought to myself when reading it that I hadn t wished a place was so real and that I could visit it since Hogwarts Even this week I ve been walking through the station and looking at it differently as if those tunnels and passageways that Caroline brought to life in my mind so well are suddenly going to appear and offer me access The character of Martha Lost felt so real that I felt as if I was walking I m not brave enough to spin like Martha does every morning her path and that her legacy somehow lived on through the station For a character to not even feel fictional to feel like someone who actually lived is a rare thing for an author to achieve in a story but Caroline Wallace has with this remarkable piece of workI don t even want to talk about the plot too much because the story unfolds in a way that you really need to know as little as possible about it before you pick it up Martha Lost has been lost since she was a baby told by the woman who took her in Mother that she was abandoned in a suitcase on the train from Paris and since then she s waited in the lost property at Lime Street Station for someone to claim her Sixteen years later and she s still hopeful Martha is simply the most delightful character with an outlook on life far beyond her young years and it wasn t that she was written older than she was meant to be but because the life she s led so far has forced her to grow up fast and even then there are numerous moments throughout the book where Martha comes across younger than she s meant to be because of her naivety and because she knows nothing of the outside world because Mother told her the station will crumble if she leaves it And so she builds a life for herself through lost property where she has a uniue ability to touch an item and find out its story and through books and her wonderful best friend Elisabeth who runs a cafe on the station and offers advice and encouragement throughout the story to allow Martha the courage and strength to finally find out who she really is There are numerous other characters vital to this story but I really think readers should discover them for themselvesCaroline Wallace is a wonderful writer and behind all the magic there s a real story to be had here and it is certainly an emotional one in places as Martha finally starts to discover who she really is I could fill this review with some of my favourite uotes from the book but it was perhaps the ones from Martha that stuck in my mind the most I read somewhere that most four year olds smile four hundred times a day but then by the time they become adults they only smile twenty times a day I m not sure I want to be an adult People are always in a hurry They only realise the worth of something after they lose it Martha Lost isn t a character I could relate to as such but Caroline allows the reader to connect with her to understand her and as the story progressed I felt as if Martha was offering hope to my own life Showing that there are ways to get through those difficult moments that we sometimes have in life and that s one of the great things about this story I think people are going to take so many different things from it Martha s love of books is perhaps one of the things book lovers will enjoy most about this book especially when they discover something about where she stores them If I had to compare Martha with somebody I think it would have to be Matilda Both her outlook on life and her upbringing Her passion and love for books practically made the book glow in my hands and what it also did for me was make me think about the stories of books beyond the words within them especially second hand books that have been passed around many different peopleI lived and breathed this novel whilst reading it and I was close to bereft when I turned its final page Caroline effortlessly captures the era this book is set in and those sights and sounds the music and the city come alive on the page I wasn t ready to leave these characters or the setting behind but thankfully it lives on in my mind and this isn t a book I ll only be reading once but one that I will return to again and again and I can definitely see it becoming a favourite of mine and I m almost certain it ll be on my Books of the Year list come December It s one I think I ll read again and notice different things and it ll become one of those books where it s like meeting up with old friends The Finding of Martha Lost is a remarkable magical perfect novel that completely took me by surprise and offered me one of the most enjoyable reading experiences and journeys I have ever had in a book Please if you have this book on your TBR or think you would like to read it do not even hesitate to push it right to the top of the pile because it s a decision you will not regret
