Perhaps the biggest tragedy of our lives is that freedom is possible, yet we can pass our years trapped in the same old patterns…We may want to love other people without holding back, to feel authentic, to breathe in the beauty around us, to dance and sing. Yet each day we listen to inner voices that keep our life small.

The Secret of Lost Things by Sheridan Hay is an absorbing novel about a young woman named Rosemary who moves from Australia  to New York after her mother dies. With nothing left of her old life, Rosemary decides to travel to a new city and finds herself working at an extraordinary bookstore called the Arcade. Soon, she finds herself at home among the books and eccentric staff that make the Arcade so rare and special. Unfortunately, Rosemary’s small town innocence and beauty get her caught up in a race to find a lost manuscript that could break the Arcade apart.
I found this story quite beautiful. In fact, I envied Rosemary’s character quite a bit, not only because she had a lovely job, but also her bravery to go to a whole new country and start a new life astounds me. As I read the book I felt full, as if I had just finished a warm meal followed by coffee and pie. Rosemary’s character grows and changes so naturally that I felt as if I was growing and changing along with her. Such a great book!

We have long ago forgotten what it means to contemplate some- thing. With the click of a computer mouse we can get the answer, or what promises to be the answer, to almost any question we can imagine. All of the world’s most ancient spiritual teachings are but a click or download away, and yet we remain so lost to ourselves, so cut off from what nourishes the soul, that we are collectively suffocating under the weight of our ignorance and alienation from the sacred dimension of Life.
