The Peach Keeper

Welcome to Walls of Water, North Carolina, a place where secrets run thicker than the town's famous fog. Once upon a time, Willa Jackson's family owned the beautiful house on the top of the ridge. Now it symbolises her family's ruin and a legacy Willa longs to escape from. Paxton Osgood also yearns to break free, especially from her parents' expectations, and the heartbreak of unrequited love. Desperate for a distraction, she decides to restore the empty mansion to its former glory. But the discovery of a long-buried secret, a friendship that defies time, and a touch of magic, will transform both women's lives in ways they would never have expected

I bought this book on Amazon and that's also where I borrowed the above from. Sarah Addison Allen's books are little treasures for me. I see them as a kind of gift that I'm only allowed access to on special days. The first day of this new year was such a day. And this book didn't disappoint me. It was the perfect book to start my year with and I enjoyed it immensely. It's about tragedy, shame and secrets and about finding friendship and love. There's a hint of magic which makes the story extra special. The atmosphere it what makes the book great, I got sucked in right away. I've read the book in one go, I just had to keep reading to find out what would happen next. I won't tell you too much about the story as I think it's something you need to find out for yourself.
