The people that frequent the ramshackle cabins at Lost Lake fall in love with the place, whether they are there to forget the past, mend old wounds or to see old friends.
The same group converges on Lost Lake each year to unwind, drawn by the scenery, the mouthwatering food prepared by the silent cook and the hospitality like no other from the owner, Eby.
But with Eby’s plans to sell, that is all about to change.
Out of the blue Eby has an unexpected visit from her estranged niece Kate which causes the lakes old magic to resurface in a way that no one could have anticipated.
Sarah Addison Allen’s stories always have a hint of magic to them, but what sets her apart is that the magic isn’t the focal point of the story. She tells rich tales about people and real emotions, with an undertone of magic making that element as normal as any day to day activity. This is not an easy thing to achieve, yet she does it so well.
At the heart if this story is the basic need for humans to have relationships. May that be between a mother and daughter, old lovers or friends. Having relationships are so important to keep us grounded and whole.
This truly is a beautiful book. The characters are so varied yet all equally loveable. If you enjoyed reading magical books as a child but have grown out of young adult, then Sarah Addison Allen is the author for you (she is for me anyway 😀).
