Historical author Kristin Hannah breaks new ground in her powerful exploration of a woman rediscovering herself in On Mystic Lake. Annie Colwater's routine life is shattered when, after putting their daughter Natalie on a plane for study in London, her husband Blake tells her he's in love with a junior law associate.
Annie's father Hank once gave her a compass so that she could always find her way home, and Annie now returns to Mystic Lake. Overwhelmed by the bleak future she foresees, Annie forces herself to befriend six-year-old Izzy Delacroix. The child's need for a mother's love parallels Annie's lost relationship with her own mother.
Annie is not the only one trying to get back on track. Nick, Izzy's father, was part of Annie's past, the love of her youth, but he chose someone else. His wife's death led to Nick's subsequent guilt and battle with alcoholism. The renewal and growing relationship between Annie and Nick demands that each explore their preconceived ideas about what values and commitments are most worth fighting for. As Annie Colwater learns, sometimes life is as simple as saying "I matter."
Kristin Hannah has a signature talent for drawing deep into the hearts of her story's characters. These are real problems, and Hannah is a master portrayer of the human spirit. On Mystic Lake is too good to share - so buy extras!
