Cassandra’s Pick

Lost Lake by Sarah Addison AllenLost Lake by Sarah Addison Allen

I cannot express how much I enjoyed reading this novel. Lost Lake by Sarah Addison Allen is a book and an author I would recommend to any reader. Kate has just woken up after a year of living in a fog following her husband’s death. With her mother-in-law taking over her life and her daughter Devin losing a little of herself each day, a postcard lost fifteen years ago, found in a trunk leads Kate and Devin to Lost Lake and a lost aunt. Eby Pim, whose own story leads readers on a journey half a life ago and her own love and loss, now dealing with Lost Lake in jeopardy, Kate finds herself entwined with this new place that offers so much hope for a happy future for both her and Devin. Lost Lake is full of characters that will stay with the reader long after the story ends and a mystery set deep in the heart of Lost Lake wrapped in an atmosphere of hope and just enough magic to create the wonderful world.

Sarah Addison Allen is a New York Times bestselling author, who weaves a beautifully written story with just a hint of magic that entices and entrances readers until the last page. She has four other novels, all are excellent reads. Garden Spells, The Sugar Queen, The Girl who Chased the Moon and The Peach Keeper.

Quiet: the power of introverts in a world that can't stop talking by Susan CainQuiet: the power of introverts in a world that can’t stop talking by Susan Cain

The north and south of temperament — The extrovert ideal. The rise of the “mighty likable fellow”: how extroversion became the cultural ideal. The myth of charismatic leadership: the culture of personality, a hundred years later. When collaboration kills creativity: the rise of the new Group-think and the power of working alone — Your biology, yourself? Is temperament destiny?  Nature, nurture, and the Orchid Hypothesis; beyond temperament: the role of free will (and the secret of public speaking for introverts). “Franklin was a politician, but Eleanor spoke out of conscience”: why cool is overrated? Why did Wall Street crash and Warren Buffett prosper?  How introverts and extroverts think (and process dopamine) differently — Do all cultures have an extrovert ideal? Soft power: Asian-Americans and the extrovert ideal — How to love, how to work. When should you act more extroverted than you really are?  The communication gap: how to talk to members of the opposite type. On cobblers and generals: how to cultivate quiet kids in a world that can’t hear them.
