Lost Lake

Lost Lake by Sarah Addison Allen

While Sarah Addison Allen is one of my favorite authors, this one was a little disappointing, but not for any specific reason.  

Kate is in a fog.  Her daughter, who has a personality all her own, is being raised by her grandmother.  Feeling the need to get a grip on her life, Kate decides to take her daughter and travel to a place from her past.  Kate’s great aunt is selling a camp that has been a part of the town for generations.  The townspeople are sad about the pending sale, but understand an elderly woman cannot run a camp by herself.

While her touch of magic is always mixed into her stories with a great cast of characters, it just didn’t seem to be of Sarah’s usual greatness.  It is still a good read with so much to keep your interest turning pages.  The prequel “Waking Kate” is not a necessary read, but it is enjoyable.
