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.


Traveling With T’s Thoughts:

I have been trying to write my thoughts on LOST LAKE for over a week. I have looked at this beautiful cover, have thought long and hard about what to say, have struggled and came darn close to crying because I had writer’s block (err.. blogger’s block).

And today, the last day that I can submit my thoughts on LOST LAKE as part of She Reads March Book Club Selection- I’m just going to spew my thoughts- hold on, folks, this ride could get bumpy!

This is my first Sarah Addison Allen book, an author who I’ve neglected to read over the years- partly because I was not aware of Sarah till the past couple of years and partly because magical realism has been a genre that I have neglected.

Can I just say read this? I mean, really, just READ this book. It has love, sadness, moving on- it has wonderful characters, some characters that need to be pinched, memorable characters!

It’s worth reading. It’s enjoyable. The cover is gorgeous. The writing, well the writing flows- lyrical and beautiful.

Go. Get this book. You won’t be sorry.

  1. The only book of hers I’ve read is Garden Spells, and I really enjoyed it. I had this one out from the library when it was first released but I had to return it before I could get to it. I’m sure I’ll make my way back around to it eventually.

  2. I loved this book too! I hadn’t heard of SAA before she was selected for SheReads, but after that I felt like I was hearing about her every where. Since I love magical realism and happy endings, I could tell right away that she was going to be my kind of author 🙂
