Goodreads Summary

From the New York Times bestselling author of Garden Spells comes a novel about heartbroken people finding hope at a magical place in Georgia called Lost Lake.

Suley, Georgia, is home to Lost Lake Cottages and not much else. Which is why it’s the perfect place for newly-widowed Kate and her eccentric eight-year-old daughter Devin to heal. Kate spent one memorable childhood summer at Lost Lake, had her first almost-kiss at Lost Lake, and met a boy named Wes at Lost Lake. It was a place for dreaming. But Kate doesn’t believe in dreams anymore, and her Aunt Eby, Lost Lake’s owner, wants to sell the place and move on. Lost Lake’s magic is gone. As Kate discovers that time has a way of standing still at Lost Lake can she bring the cottages—and her heart—back to life? Because sometimes the things you love have a funny way of turning up again. And sometimes you never even know they were lost . . . until they are found.

My Thoughts

I adore Sarah Addison Allen’s books. She writes the kind of stories I love to read – small towns, memorable characters, sweet romance and a dash of magic. This new book, her first after a battle with breast cancer, is an enjoyable read. Although, I do have to say, not as good as her previous – only by a small margin. The story is interesting, the characters vibrant and the setting charming, but it lacked the gripping power of “Garden Spells” and “The Girl Who Chased the Moon.”

While reading, I enjoyed the story, but I never thought of it when I wasn’t reading and never felt an urgency to see what would happen. The love story also didn’t have the magic I hoped for.

Is it worth reading? Of course! Sarah’s writing thrives on gorgeous descriptions and witty observations. It’s a great light read, a pleasure read.

Content note: A few light sexual references.

  1. With plantar fasciitis, the structures that typically require treatment are the plantar fascia, gastrocnemius and soleus (calf muscles), and the posterior tibialis, flexor hallicus longus, and flexor digitorum longus (deep calf muscles).
    You can do the identical exercising with out a towel as although you are grasping something with the toes of each and every foot. This includes walking for long distances, walking up or down stairs, running, sports etc.
