From the author of  New York Times  bestseller  Garden Spells  comes a beautiful, haunting story of old loves and new, and the power of the connections that bind us forever...  The first time Eby Pim saw Lost Lake, it was on a picture postcard. Just an old photo and a few words on a small square of heavy stock, but when she saw it, she knew she was seeing her future. That was half a life ago. Now Lost Lake is about to slip into Eby's past. Her husband George is long passed. Most of her demanding extended family are gone. All that's left is a once-charming collection of lakeside cabins succumbing to the Southern Georgia heat and damp, and an assortment of faithful misfits drawn back to Lost Lake year after year by their own unspoken dreams and desires. It's a lot, but not enough to keep Eby from relinquishing  Lost Lake to a developer with cash in hand, and calling this her final summer at the lake. Until one last chance at family knocks on her door. Lost Lake is where Kate Pheris spent her last best summer at the age of twelve,  before she learned of loneliness, and heartbreak, and loss. Now she's all too familiar with those things, but she knows about hope too, thanks to her resilient daughter Devin, and her own willingness to start moving forward. Perhaps at Lost Lake her little girl can cling to her own childhood for just a little longer... and maybe Kate herself can rediscover something that slipped through her fingersso long ago. One after another, people find their way to Lost Lake, looking for something that they weren't sure they needed in the first place:  love, closure, a second chance, peace, a mystery solved, a heart mended.  Can they find what they need before it's too late?  At once atmospheric and enchanting,  Lost Lake  shows Sarah Addison Allen at her finest, illuminating the secret longings and the everyday magic that wait to be discovered in the unlikeliest of places.

display_description"The first time Eby Pim saw Lost Lake, it was on a picture postcard--and she knew she was seeing her future. That was half a life ago, and now the idyllic Georgia lakeside community is about to slip into Eby's past. Her husband, along with most of her demanding extended family, is gone. . .as are many of her old dreams and desires. But then, just as Eby considers relinquishing her cabins to a developer with cash in hand, one last opportunity for having a family comes knocking at her door. . . Lost Lake is where Kate Pheris spent her last best summer as an adolescent, before she learned of loneliness and heartbreak and loss. But today she has hope, thanks to her resilient daughter, Devin, whose willingness to move forward gives Kate a chance to rediscover something that slipped through her fingers so long ago. After all, people seem to end up at Lost Lake, looking for something that they weren't sure they needed in the first place: love, closure, a mystery solved, redemption. Can Kate, Devin, and Eby find what each of them needs before it's too late?"--Back page of book.
