The Book of Lost Friends is not a book that you just close the cover and move on from. It is a book from which one must slowly emerge. One must ease their heartstrings away from Hannie, Juneau Jane, Missy, and Benny; to do otherwise would leave a tear that would be difficult to mend. The story bridges generations from 1875 to 1987, awakening those latter generations to the stories of their ancestors and their own self-worth, making it possible for them to begin to define themselves rather than to be defined by others. May it also teach us about our own value, to encourage us to take great risks in order to improve the world for present and future generations.

Lisa Wingate has created another story that is likely destined to top bestseller lists. I could not recommend it more highly. I am very grateful to have received a copy from Ballantine, an imprint of Random House Publishing Group via NetGalley in exchange for my honest opinion. I was under no obligation to provide a positive review, and received no monetary compensation.
