Publisher's Summary

From the author of A Lifetime of Impossible Days (winner of the Courier-Mail People's Choice QLD Book of the Year award) comes this beautiful and uplifting story, that will make you laugh and make you cry.

Welcome to The Emporium of Imagination, a most unusual shop that travels the world offering vintage gifts to repair broken dreams and extraordinary phones to contact lost loved ones.

But, on arrival in the tiny township of Boonah, the store's long-time custodian, Earlatidge Hubert Umbray, makes a shocking realisation. He is dying....

The clock is now ticking to find his replacement, because the people of Boonah are clearly in need of some restorative magic. 

Like Enoch Rayne - a heartbroken 10-year-old boy mourning the loss of his father, while nurturing a guilty secret. 

Like Ann Harlow, who has come to the town to be close to her dying grandmother. Though it's Enoch's father who dominates her thoughts - and regrets....

Even Earlatidge in his final days will experience the store as never before - and have the chance to face up to his own tragedy....

A wonderful story of imagination and compassion.

Imagination helps us make make sense of our world and solving problems. Compassion is a beautiful quality in us all, uniting differences and enabling individual minds to experience something altogether more wholesome. The Emporium of Imagination, illustrates compassion through all the characters' connections to the Emporium. A delightful view of what we hold onto; how being caught in apparent realities and beliefs, and of our lives' very beginnings and endings. The journey of the Emporium reminded me, or maybe awakens in us that which is right and true. What a great place to visit!!
So well performed, a pleasure to listen to.

Fabulous

Beautiful book! Nearly cried through out. Everything was great until the male reading parts where you can hear him gulping something loudly. But other than that it was fabulous!
