On Mystic Lake
On Mystic Lake | Kristin Hannah
14 posts | 31 read | 15 to read
Kristin Hannah makes her hardcover debut with this poignant, tender, and true story of love, loss, passion, and the fragile threads that bind families together. 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. From the Hardcover edition.

I wanna rock your gypsy soul
Just like way back in the days of old
Then magnificently we will float
Into the mystic....Van Morrison

I‘m giving this a pick, but just barely. This books didn‘t drag like a couple of her other books I‘ve read recently did. Kept me reading. I also really liked Annie‘s relationship with both Izzy and Natalie. The main plot though is completely predictable and has been done lots of times, including by KH herself. 11/13 complete for #13books13weeks

Jeannineth I didn‘t enjoy her earlier novels. 1y
TheHeartlandBookFairy I love Kristin Hannah! 1y

I think this is 11/13 for #13books13weeks (with under 3 weeks left, by my calculations?). Just starting this, but it already seems better than the last two Kristin Hannah books I read.

Coleen I have a love hate relationship with Kristin Hannah. I enjoy her story lines, but find her writing too sappy for my taste. 1y

Mommy needed a Me Day today. Visited 3 of my favorite bookshops, traded in a decent amount and, of course, came home with this stack. Mommy feels better now. 😊😊💜📚

What to do when reality (ahem, presidential debate) is scarier than fiction? Well I think you can guess...

A good book and I thoroughly enjoyed it right up to the last few pages which seemed a bit rushed.

Ambam Whoa. Did you edit this photo?! It's so cool! 3y

"How life slips away from you while you're standing in a grocery line, waiting to pay for a quart of milk...how time passes and takes everything in its path - youth, hopes, dreams. Dreams - it takes those most of all."

It's Friday! I can't wait to get home, change into comfy clothes, and return to Mystic...with the obligatory cup of tea and cat snuggled on my lap ☕️🐱

Rediscovering some old favourites. I don't actually remember this story so it's actually like reading it for the first time.
