The Special Power of Restoring Lost ThingsSet against a layered Manhattan landscape The Special Power of Restoring Lost Things explores a fractured family through the alternating perspectives of the mother father and brother of a young woman during the aftermath of her disappearance A year of silent but collective anguish culminates in the fateful thirty hours after a body wit I've gotten tired of alternating perspectives as a literary style but in this instance it actually worked Each character told a different story with hardly any repetition There was enough overlap to make it believable and I really did enjoy how it all converged at the end I was a little disappointed that there wasn't of a storyline devoted to Jennifer's disappearance and the ongoing search for her but I understand that wasn't the point of the story I loved the part where the author revealed the inspiration for the title; the notes to Jennifer from her dad were among the best parts of the book and I think really and honestly showed his suffering Each of the characters dealt with their pain in completely different ways and it was interesting to watch as their guilt manifested I was left with too many uestions to feel completely fulfilled; my rating is of a 35 but not uite a four because of this The first picks are often hit or miss; I'm glad I finally picked a good one
