Book of the Month for May – The Keeper of Stories by Sally Page

The Keeper of Stories is a wonderful, quirky, total treasure of a book which hauled me through every emotion and had me hooked from the first page. Janice is a cleaner and as she defrosts a fridge or dusts a room she overhears fragments of conversations which form part of a person’s story – stories which Janice gathers to her and mentally ‘keeps’.  When she starts to clean for Mrs B, a formidable woman in her nineties who has had an incredible life as a spy, Janice finds that her own story is of interest. What is Janice hiding and will Mrs B discover Janice’s story? With an abundance of wonderful characters including a dog with possibly the funniest character ever depicted in fiction, this book will stay with me forever. Funny, poignant and beautifully written, this is the perfect novel.
