The House of Lost and Found by Martin Widmark

Niles lives alone in his old dirty house of memories.  His children live far away, his wife died several years ago, and he lives with his memories.

Floris Books and Net Galley let me read this book for review (thank you).  It will be published tomorrow.

One evening, after he's in bed, he hears someone knocking on his door.  He goes down to see who is bothering him and finds a young boy who is holding a flower pot.  He asks if he will water his plant while they are on vacation?  He grabs the pot, closes the door, and throws the pot on the table.  He goes back to bed.  But the next day, he waters the seed.  Soon he sees new growth coming up.  And, just like the plant, he feels himself begin to blossom with new life...

The illustrations in this book are lovely and this is a very sweet story.  This one is a keeper.
