There is great excitement in Vallerosa – a royal visitor is on the way and the country’s president and cabinet have much to prepare for. When the visitor arrives though, all is not as it had seemed to be; it looks like the visit will change Vallerosa’s fortunes forever.
I have read a couple of these type of novels lately; focussing on the events in a small plave over time and getting to know them through the eyes of a stranger. “Fishbowl” by Bradley Somer reviewed here: https://iamalwaysreading.wordpress.com/2015/04/25/review-fishbowl/ was one of the most enjoyable books I have read in some time; sadly “The Museum of Things Left Behind” was not.
It’s a perfectly pleasant story about not very much but it is just a story about not very much. I didn’t particularly take to any of the characters and I didn’t particularly get caught up in the story; I just found it all very bland and uninspiring and not really to my taste. Still, if you enjoy a read which doesn’t make you think and leaves no impression on you, this would be absolutely perfect.
