It would not be possible for me to praise this book highly enough. No, really! I loved it that much. Sarah Addison Allen has a way of completely immersing the reader into her story. The town and characters felt so real.

Her prose is beautiful. She uses such perfect descriptive language and metaphors in her writing. It took me quite some time to read this because I kept rereading my favorite passages and stopping to savor them.

I've heard the author describe her work as "Southern-fried magical realism" which I think is an awesome way of putting it! The world is quirky, charming, and just a bit magical, so that the overall flavor is fairytale-esque while still seeming completely believable.

I wish there were more authors who wrote like her, because I've fallen in love with her style. I plan on going back to reread her other two novels sometime soon.
