On Mystic Lake by Kristin Hannah

From the Publisher:

Annie Colwater's only child has just left home for school abroad. On that same day, her husband of twenty years confesses that he's in love with a younger woman. Alone in the house that is no longer a home, Annie comes to the painful realization that for years she has been slowly disappearing. Lonely and afraid, she retreats to Mystic, the small Washington town where she grew up, hoping that there she can reclaim the woman she once was—the woman she is now desperate to become again.

In Mystic, she is reunited with her first love, Nick Delacroix, a recent widower unable to cope with his grieving, too-silent six-year-old daughter, Izzie. Together, the three of them begin to heal, and, at last, Annie learns that she can love without losing herself. But just when she has found a second chance at happiness, her life is turned upside down again, and Annie must make a choice no woman should have to make. . . .

On Mystic Lake is the story of one seemingly ordinary woman, but the novel speaks to all of us, to anyone who has ever had to choose between what is . . . and what could be.

My Comments:

Another very nice story by Hannah. You grow to know and really care about these characters. It was just an enjoyable read and I look forward to reading more by this author.

The ending wasn't handed to you. Which I confess to kind of yearning for. After all Annie went through, I wanted something more concretely happy for her. But you just have to have faith that it all works out in the end!

Keep It Or Pass It On?
A lovely story, but I'm passing it on like it was passed on to me. To PBS it goes, unless my Mom gets it first. Thanks, Lori! You're the best reading buddy EVER!
