This book is classified as a romance, and it was the focus on love in the book, and how fleeting time can render it, how it shouldn't be squandered or put off....that was particularly romantic I thought.
...even the title itself gets you to think upon the various meanings behind the word “lost," not just missing, but how we can become lost without purpose, without our truth being told and remembered, how we can lose ourselves in confining ourselves to a role others set for us to play, how love can make us lose our heads and act irrationally, or heroically, and so much more.
Insomnia and the tricks it will play on your mind, how far a woman might go to become a mother, possible child abduction, and the chilling feeling that someone is out to get you but you're not sure that it isn't just your mind playing tricks on you...the idea had so much potential.

The story of how a poor black woman's cells, taken without her consent, changed the face of medicine.
Hauntingly beautiful, achingly tragic. That’s how I would describe the tale that Kate Morton wove for us in The Clockmaker’s Daughter.
