Lost Lake

A widow seeks to reclaim her life in Allen's (The Peach Keeper, 2011) charming latest. On a whim, Kate Pheris packs up her daughter, Devin, and heads south to Suley, Georgia. That's where her great-aunt Eby owns a resort of lakeside cabins that Kate fondly remembers from her childhood. Perhaps at Lost Lake her little girl can cling to her own childhood for just a little longer, and maybe Kate can finally rediscover something that slipped through her fingers so long ago. Lost Lake illuminates the secret longings and everyday magic that wait to be discovered in the unlikeliest of places.
