There are special books that aren't really books at all; they are portals into magical places where you feel the joy, pain, and laughter of all the people who live there. That is what it feels like when you pick up this "Lost Lake." You feel very much like being plucked out of this world and taken on a great adventure where you discover new friends that will always be in your heart. Sarah Addison Allen has been a favorite writer of mine since I read "Garden Spells."
There is no writer that does Southern women better. These characters are no exception, from Buelahdeen to Devin, you will be captivated by all. I cannot give this book enough praise, it is moving in a way that is not easily put into words. Everyone should read this book, I've recommended it to both my 12 year old daughter and my husband. This is a story about finding your way home and everyone needs that now and again.
