This book was insane! For the first book that I've read by Kristin Hannah I was pleasantly surprised. On mystic lake was powerful and real. A book that captures the world we live in that vividly is beyond powerful.

Annie is hit by life changing events when her husband confesses that he is in love with another woman. Her world is shattered. Nick is now a widower trying to somehow figure out how to be a single father.

On mystic lake made me so mad I could throw it against a wall. But something about the story line made me continue. My heart broke for Annie. Then it was reassembled again. I felt so many emotions reading this book it is hard to put into words. The heart break and romance of this story reminds me of a beloved Nicholas Sparks book. While they are not anywhere near the same the feelings that the books gives you is that of which you would find in one of his books. Kristin Hannah is a complex writer. There are many levels in her book. This is not a light read, as you may think it would be. It has been sitting on my bookshelf for a couple of months and I decided that I would give it a shot. Empathy is all I feel for Annie and Nick. They both suffer something horrific but somehow are finding a way to heal.
