No. 1 internationally bestselling author of the Charlie Parker thrillers series, John Connolly, visits The Doylestown Bookshop as a part of his U.S. book tour for “The Land of Lost Things: A Novel” (The Book of Lost Things #2) at 6 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 20.
Connolly is also the author of the supernatural collection Nocturnes, the Samuel Johnson Trilogy for younger readers, and (with Jennifer Ridyard) the Chronicles of the Invaders series. He lives in Dublin, Ireland.
Phoebe, an eight-year-old girl, lies comatose following a car accident—a body without a spirit. Ceres, her mother, can only sit by her bedside and read aloud the fairy stories Phoebe loves in the hope they might summon her back to this world.
But an old house on the hospital grounds, a property connected to a book written by a vanished author, is calling to Ceres. Something wants her to enter, to journey to a land colored by the memories of childhood, and the folklore beloved of her father—a land of witches and dryads, giants and mandrakes; a land where old enemies are watching and waiting…”The Land of Lost Things.”
