On MYSTIC LAKE is the story of one woman, but it speaks to all of us - to anyone who has ever had to find the courage to choose between what is... and what could be.
Since I grew up in the Pacific Northwest, Kristin Hannah's books have a special place in my heart. Having said that, Hannah has a real voice that speaks all the thoughts and feelings we might have when life goes along with nothing happening, only to twist and turn the way that lives can. I highly recommend any book written by Kristin Hannah...an excellent writer.
Kristin Hannah is one of my favorite Authors. With that being said "On Mystic Lake" was another beautifully written book.
Being women we are expected to do so many things for our family. We go with the flow of life. We are there for our husbands and our kids. We make sure that our family is okay and they have what they need. We love them and support them.
"On Mystic Lake" stood out to me. The storyline was so well written and you felt you really new the characters of the book. There was a message in this book for all women. The message to me was....While raising your children and loving and growing with your husband. Don't forget to love yourself and find meaning in your life.
I hope whoever reads this books really enjoys it. I read this book in 3 days. Kristin Hannah is an amazing writer!! Happy Reading!!
I loved this book. It is a true Kristin Hannah book. It kept me interested from beginning to end. The characters were very real. The main characters (3) came to life after the first page they were introduced.
