After a month off from staff picks, we’re back in June with one from Meghan!
LOST LAKE by Sarah Addison Allen
Kate has been lingering in a fog throughout the year since her husband died, and it is only when her manipulative mother-in-law threatens to hijack her life that Kate begins to snap to. When her wardrobe-challenged eight-year-old daughter, Devin, discovers an old letter from Kate’s great-aunt Eby, the pair go on the lam to Lost Lake, Eby’s dilapidated resort camp tucked deep in the south Georgia swamplands. Long widowed, with dwindling funds and a diminishing guest roster, Eby may be forced to sell her fading haven to an unscrupulous developer, until Kate’s arrival gives her a new lease on life.
When talking about why she liked this book, Meghan said,
I love Sarah Addison Allen’s books because of their atmosphere, magical realism, and pleasurable endings.
