An enchantingly romantic and magical novel by the New York Times bestselling author of Garden Spells and The Girl Who Chased the Moon.
It happens suddenly one morning - Kate finally wakes up from the slumber she's been in since her husband's death, a year ago.
Also reawakened is a desire to take control of her life. She decides to take her young daughter and visit Suley, Georgia - home to Lost Lake, where she spent one of the happiest summers of her life as a child.
But Kate's Aunt Eby, Lost Lake's owner, desperately wants to sell the old place and move on: it's become rundown, full of ghosts and curious oddities that are too much for an old woman to handle.
Then, with perfect serendipity, Kate arrives looking for a new start. She's not sure what she expects to find there; but she soon discovers that time has a curious way of standing still at Lost Lake. Can she bring the cottages - as well as her heart - back to life?
Because sometimes things aren't really lost. They're just waiting for you to find them again...
