The tree in me

I can’t find any of the books I have on my Kobo device in the app on my iPad, including The Tree in Me

I deleted the app for a short while and when I got re-downloaded it using my same account, the 15 books I purchased earlier were no longer there. I’m not getting any assistance in retrieving them. I am very upset. Horrible!
