My Lost and Found Life (http://www.melodiebowsher.com), the new critically acclaimed novel by Melodie Bowsher, continues to draw new readers and praise from people nationwide. The book is a beautifully wrought riches-to-rags story about Ashley Mitchell, a young woman whose seemingly perfect life collapses after her mother is accused of embezzling $1 million. Set in San Francisco, My Lost and Found Life captures the vibrant life and mythology of this famed destination.
"In creating Ashley Mitchell, I offer readers a complex character who must address dramatic events that upset a world of comfort and inexhaustible privilege. Rather than surrender or ignore the gravity of her predicament, Ashley ultimately inspires people to overcome the uncertainty - the tragic unexpectedness - that life often delivers. I also write about the union between mothers and daughters that can be transcendent and universal in its expression of love," says Melodie Bowsher. "I welcome the chance to introduce readers to this story, a novel that is a testament to personal strength and human dignity.

Ashley's journey unfolds in San Francisco, which the novel depicts with vivid supporting characters and rich details. "Ashley certainly has to deal with the harshness of reality, circumstances that take place in my beloved city of San Francisco. I describe the area with the complexity it deserves - San Francisco is part of our shared cultural imagination - and the fun it elicits," states Bowsher.
