Zoe Miller is a young airport worker who longs to be a photographer, but she doesn't know how to go about pursuing her dream...or even if she should. Then a chance encounter with a wayward passenger offers the promise of a new life, and suddenly Zoe must decide: stay within the comfort zone of the only life she's ever known, or get on a plane with a stranger who can help her dream come true?

Zoe Miller spends her days reuniting passengers with their belongings in the Lost & Found department of a small regional airport. While helping others comes naturally to the happy-go-lucky 28-year-old, helping herself does not. People have been telling her for years that she’s lost: stuck in a dead-end job, weighed down by a relationship with a commitment-phobic boyfriend, and living in a town that never quite felt like home. She should want more out of life, but Zoe doesn’t understand why everyone can’t just leave her alone. She’s happy, right? So when a wayward Australian passenger upends everything she thought she knew--and makes her an offer almost too good to be true--Zoe suddenly has a decision to make: Should she stay within the comfort zone of the only life she's ever known, or take a chance on the stranger promising her a happier, more fulfilling life?
A short story, The Department of Lost and Found is a breezy, lighthearted look at life and love that serves as a reminder to occasionally take stock of your dreams...and have the courage to follow the path towards true happiness.
