Pastor Cherukupalli Rama Rao has been waiting for four months for a dozen odd beady-eyed teddy bears to reach the six children under his charge at the Angel House India home in Venkatapuram village, Mudigona, Telangana.
But the stuffed teddies are probably hibernating somewhere in a five-star luxury hotel in Jaipur — or they are simply lost in transit. Rama Rao oversees an orphanage built — albeit not entirely — with the help of a Rs lakh donation from Canadian cryptocurrency entrepreneur Gerald Cotten and his wife, Jennifer Robertson.
But the couple never reached Venkatapuram, nor did their gifts. Gerald passed away in Jaipur. Please go forward with the opening. Play Slideshow.

I was a bit torn on how to review this book. Cresswell is an author who has obviously spent years honing and polishing her writing to a level that is so impressive that I struggle to find words to accurately describe it.
This book is clearly a work of art, not meant for the impatient reader looking for the usual fare of literary junk food. Every word, sentence, and paragraph is carefully constructed, as are the characters in the story. In many ways, this book reads like the literary equivalent of a beautiful oil painting. In fact, if I were judging this book merely on its prose, it would easily receive five stars. There are no technical flaws worth mentioning in this book, other than perhaps, the occasional typo, few of which a reader fully engrossed in the narrative would probably even notice.
Yes, this book is that well done! My only complaints of this work probably reflects more on the flaws of the reader, in this case me, rather than the work itself. The writing, as mentioned, is top notch. However, it is so descriptive that its core strength, which never fails to conjure vivid imagery in the reader's mind, also serves to slow down the pace at which the book is read. I often found myself wanting to pick up the pace to see what would happen next, but the level of detail and sophisticated prose prevented me from doing so.
Unless a reader is ready to fully immerse him or herself in a book that is intended to be savored like a glass of expensive wine, some frustration can occur. The sometimes too-rich description of colors, smells, and sounds proffered by this book caused a bit of sensory overload. Also, I, like other readers, predictably, would benefit from having embarked on this literary journey at an earlier point in the series rather than at the end. I was frustrated and confused at times by previous events that had gotten little explanation in the book. Introduction or re-introduction of characters, plot points, and themes were missed by me due to a lack of a proper understanding of the roles and function of the many players and issues dealt with in this story.
Overall, Loose Ends is a brilliantly written book that is intelligent, thoughtful, and moving.
I would not hesitate to recommend this book to readers who have read and enjoyed the previous installments. Disclosure: I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest, non-reciprocal, review. Loose Ends is the final part of the Lost Boys Quartet, also available as a whole in p- and e-formats.

Interesting and Fun I hadn't read the lady three in this series so I was kind of thrown off. Allie's book reminded me a little of the movie "Crash. The writing was good and I found it a fun and interesting read. I was thrown off a little bit in some parts but overall, I thought it was a good way to pass the time.
