On Mystic Lake
On Mystic Lake | Kristin Hannah
33 posts | 49 read | 25 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.

Annie Colwater has been married to Blake for 20 years but as their daughter, Natalie, leaves home for a trip to London and then onto college, Blake confesses that he is in love with a younger woman. Annie decides to go home and visit her father. She meets up again with her first love, Nick Delacroix, a recent widower, and his young emotionally scarred daughter, Izzy. Together they begin to heal but soon her world is turned upside down again.

EadieB I found this book to be an emotional roller coaster and the twists and turns kept me turning the pages. It's a story of a 2nd chance at life where cleaning up the first one can be a bit messy. This is an early book from Kristin Hannah and you can see that she is winding up for some of her better stories. I love to watch how a writer's voice transforms and this is a good place to start with Kristin Hannah. 7mo

This is a cute story that is well-written, but it‘s quite the cliché sob story, as well as predictable one. It was worth the read, but not one of her best books. Solid and good, but that‘s as far as it goes. 3+ stars

Andrew65 Not the best by the sound of it. 7mo
EadieB Starting this one soon! 7mo

Kristin Hannah has turned out to be a must read author for me. I had read books by her previously and enjoyed them, but this one just hit differently. As a result, I read several of her books in 2021 and didn‘t want them to end.

The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue falls into the ‘Litsy made me do it‘ category and I‘m so glad it did.

Andrew65 Great choices and two books I want to read. 7mo
kplovesbooks Agreed with Andrew, both of these are on my TBR! 7mo

I‘ve been away from Litsy far too long. I am currently reading this one in Cloud Library. I have Four Winds & Comfort & Joy by same author on hold. Four Winds will be a month or longer. Local library doesn‘t even have it!

Three hours left in this book. I often end up really disliking some of Hannah‘s characters, especially teenage girls. So far, that hasn‘t happened, but there‘s still time. Another gorgeous day. That branch on the ground reminded me of Tiny Tim‘s crutch. #audiowalk

This is my first time walking in about a week because I hurt my foot. Also, I haven‘t been to this park in about a year — since the pandemic started. It‘s close to me, but every time I went by it was too crowded for me to feel comfortable. I feel so much safer being vaccinated. Early Kristin Hannah for my walking book. I didn‘t walk far because I‘m still babying my foot, but still. #audiowalk

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. 4y
TheHeartlandBookFairy I love Kristin Hannah! 4y

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. 4y

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

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