In Praise of Retreat: Finding Sanctuary in the Modern World 📚 By Kirsteen MacLeod 📚 Currently reading! It is fascinating to read this book after a year of retreat due to the pandemic.

The Lost Apothecary has officially made it onto my top 10 list of favorite books. It took me a few days after finishing it to get my thoughts together because I just wanted to soak up the book for a while.

First, author Sarah Penner did an amazing job writing this book. With a dual timeline and three different perspectives, it could have gotten very confusing, very fast. But it didn‘t - it wasn‘t hard to keep track of times (cont. in comments)

booksbrewsandbooze It wasn‘t hard to keep track of times and dates, characters and perspectives.

I listened to the audiobook of The Lost Apothecary and in addition to being well-written, it was also well-spoken. The narrators -- Lorna Bennett, Lauren Anthony and Lauren Irwin -- were top notch, appropriate for their ages and eras. I particularly enjoyed the richness of Bennett‘s voice, who spoke as Nella in the audiobook.

booksbrewsandbooze This book had twists and turns and moments of such heartbreak, poignancy and wonder. It kept me wondering too, and guessing, and honestly, it made me want to drop everything and go mudlarking on the river Thames. 1y
booksbrewsandbooze The ending of the book still has me reeling and wondering. I was very surprised by how the book ended. It‘s a wildly interesting book with strong female characters, family legacies, what it means to be maternal, what it means to have faith and maybe, just maybe… there‘s magic too. 1y

Lost Lake | Sarah Addison Allen
post image
Pickpick

Do I ever love magical realism! Sarah Addison Allen is such a purveyor of magic. I‘ll read anything she writes because her character creation and storytelling is so damn good.

I cared about the characters 10 minutes into the book. That‘s magic. (rest of review in comments)

booksbrewsandbooze There‘s several twists here that I didn‘t see coming. Wow.

Selma is one of the most interesting and complex characters. She is unexpected.

booksbrewsandbooze
I get mild Big Fish (the movie) vibes from this... mostly in the magical realism aspect.
2y
booksbrewsandbooze Lost Lake is about the past, the present, the future... what it means to deeply love someone, what it means to deeply love a place, the sacrifices and decisions we willingly make for love, chosen family vs. biological family, the walls people put up, the power of female friendships. 2y
booksbrewsandbooze
It would make a great book to discuss with friends or your book club. Or just read it yourself, let it stay with you like letting chocolate melt in your mouth and appreciate the magic of it all.

What an incredibly sad and moving story. This is a book that will stay with me for a long time, one I know I‘ll talk about often.

Here‘s something I appreciate in books: Sometimes, the endings aren‘t always wrapped up nicely in a bow. Sometimes they don‘t wrap the reader up in a cozy blanket. Sometimes, they feel more real. This is one of those stories.
